Hurray for Writers!


I know that many of you bloggers out there are also authors --
emerging, established, yet to be discovered,
published, or not published but working on it!

So, in this month of NaNoWriMo
(National Novel Writing Month),
here's my meme tribute to writers everywhere!





Don't be afraid to learn from the Great Writers of the world.
They have much wisdom to impart to you.


You writers work your fingers to the bone
realizing your literary vision of genius!



Alas, however, as every writer knows,
there are dry periods as well.


But as hard as writing is, there is an
even greater terror down the road . . .
dealing with editors!


However, editors have their own problems too
and must be careful not to go overboard
in their editorial zeal --


Even when writers reach the Promised Land of publication,
they must then worry about promotion and book sales.

So here's a handy tip to help you through it!


Well, at least we won't be bothered
this month here in the blogosphere
by Her Royal Highness the Cat.

She's doing NaNoWriMo too!


HRH says her book is some kind of tell-all exposé
about me and life at She Who Seeks blog.

Ha ha, how silly!
[nervous laughter]

Page Turner.
It took me a minute.
It's early.

Moving with Mitchell said...

I started a book more than 20 years ago... it’s still started.

Marie Smith said...

Lol. I have a job to manage a blog let alone write a book.

Hilarious!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Page Turner is a perfect novelist's name! I do envy writers who come up with amazing stories. Love these memes! Can you imagine if our pets could write books about their people?!

DEZMOND said...

I'd do what that dog does if I was an editor!

pam nash said...

Writing would be a lot easier if you could just put words on paper and not have to worry about punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure.

Lady M said...

Well I can't wait for HRH's book to materialize.

nothoughtsnoprayersnonothing said...

Thank you so much. You have persuaded me not to write a novel! But I would read any and every novel written by you.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

...and yet there stories out there that make you scratch your head and wonder, how in the heck did this person get published?

Leanna said...

So funny. Leo Tolstoy was funny. The name Page Turner got me thinking about all the names that I came in contact with when I was working at the lab. Some like Crystal Clear, Thomas Pain, and Crystal Waters. Parents can be so cruel.

^.^ said...

That was fun, friend D :) I liked "Page Turner" (although have never read her) … and the typing cat is familiar :) Theo Thunderbutt likes to "type" with his whole furry body at times :) Much love, cat.

e said...

Yes to the Nanowrimo! I'm 8k words into this year's effort! (Only 42k to go...)

Willym said...

I have a real problem with writing. Miss Firth, my English teacher, was in the habit of saying "Write what you know!" Unfortunately I don't know much......

Rosemary said...

The idea of writing a book is daunting - I am full of admiration for those that do.

Barbara said...

Oh my gosh. Loved these. Especially bloody keys. That's what I feel like sometimes when I've gone mental - especially about politics.

Brian Joseph said...

Some very funny stuff. I never actually thought of writing a book. Good luck to those who are doing so.

Tundra Bunny said...

Will HRH's novel be entitled "Blood On The Keyboard"? Please do remind her to spell my name correctly on the acknowledgments page....

Adam said...

I use Twitter to get the word out there for mine.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Tundra Bunny -- Oh, so YOU'RE the whistleblower who's been providing her with even more INSIDE DIRT. I should have known.

Mildred Ratched said...

I have a book or two in me...ha! But who would read them?

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

Ohhhh yes!
Three of my friends are doing the challenge. Fun!
And the Twilight meme? Priceless.

XoXo

Tundra Bunny said...

heh heh heh

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

Do you know how many bookS I have written? They are all drivel. I can't find whatever it is to make me an author. I right captions, gags, bits and rants from my brain.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I'm sure the expose will be riveting!! This was such a fun read-too darn cute. Have a great day!

holli said...

I'll read it!! Just get it published and i'll read it. So excited for you.

Kirk said...

It's not necessarily the funniest, but I think I like the third picture from the top the best, because it's so true.

Liz Hinds said...

Wonderful. I shall have to steal some of these.

jono said...

When HRH is finished we will all know the truth! There will be stories of near starvation, unusable toilet facilities, abandonment, and nothing to sleep on but cold, hard, keyboards. We will all know the horrific details when she is done. IF she can get it published.
Fortunately for me I have no such ambitions and am content to read the musings of others.

Guillaume said...

All very funny. And it reminds me that I haven't published one book yet, apart from my thesis.

Martha said...

HAHA! So funny :) I tried writing a book and realized I just don't have the patience for it. I could do articles. That's as far as my attention span will go.

I do hope HRH writes that book ;)

Fundy Blue said...

I laughed all the way through this, Debra! Is HRH taking preorders??? Sign me up!

Empty Nest Insider said...

I could definitely relate to the vampire/writer. These were all good, but my favorite was Page Turner! It's always fun to come here, Debra!

LL Cool Joe said...

Haha loved them all but that Amazon meme made me laugh even harder.

Jenn said...

I am not a writer and don't even try but I have a friend who is an amazing writer! Kudos to all the writers out there!
Also Page Turner haha. That's as good as my Jr. High Science teacher, Mr. Laser.

Rommy said...

Hey now! Some of us are committed tea drinkers. :D

I'm unofficially doing NaNoWriMo. The idea for the next book won't leave me alone.

Magaly Guerrero said...

Oh, goodness! I've just laughed until my tummy heart. How I love this.

Carol Blackburn said...

Love it! Oh, I have ideas, file drawers full of poetry and the beginnings of plays and stories. Thankfully our local paper accepts poetry and I can get one published there from time to time. It does make one feel good to see their work in print. I hope you are enjoying the change of seasons where you are.

Ur-spo said...

Yes we are all authors! Keep writing everyone of us - especially you my dear ! xoxo

Powdered Toast Man said...

Page Turner is Tina Turner's real name. You can only write a book if you start writing.

baili said...

The Happy Whisk said...
