I've had too much caffeine today and am super-giddy. Like laughing-to-myself-hoping-no-one-is-watching-giddy. This is apparently what happens when you get up earlier than normal to exercise before work. Insanity! My brain is revolting!
Hope you enjoy my little diddy ~ happy weekend everyone!
An Ode to critEKKK
O writerly sisters how I adore thee,
and not just for your editing skillz,
or even the happy way you make me feelz.
not just for the great plots in your book,
or even because we all love a great hook,
not just because we have a cool group name,
or even because we dream of writerly fame
not just for your constant encouragement,
or even the way you talk me out of discouragement
not just because you make my novel more sound,
or even when your highlights, strikethroughs, and comments abound
not just because you always know just what to change,
or even because you know how it should be rearranged
There's something more about you three,
something that makes me want to sing like the characters on GLEE,
something that brings a smile to my face,
it's a special writerly bond that can't be replaced…
So as we toil towards that big publishing goal,
I just wanted you to know,
the camaraderie and laughter heals my soul
And last but not least,
many thanks for sending the writing fairy,
writer's block was way too scary,
I've locked her up tight and put her away,
had to make sure, this time she'll stay.
