Blogger: Rachelle Gardner
We had a great time on St. Patrick’s Day with all the limericks! Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Here are the results:
Best description of the writer’s life:
by Donna Earnhardt
My booty has doubled in size
Cause I don’t get enough exercise
When this next draft is done
Guess I’ll go for a run —
After, of course, I revise!
Best rhyming of editor with predator:
by Kit Tosello
There once was a sleep-deprived editor,
Who grew fangs sharp as a monster-like predator.
Her victim, a writer
Never thought she would bite her;
had no choice but to chuck pencil lead at her!
Best statement of an obvious publishing truth:
by Janet Ann Collins
I write and I write and I write.
I might even stay up all night.
But selling a book
Requires a hook
To make any publisher bite.
Most popular with our readers:
by Shelli Littleton
When Mommy gets sick of the kitchen
Cause she’d rather write about hitchin’
My daddy takes over
With aid of ol’ Rover
And no one gets threatened a switchin’
Best ignoring of the contest rules:
by Jennifer Zarifeh Major
Difficult, she is.
Writes poor Rachelle a haiku.
Good luck to all!
Best sucking up:
by Sheila King
There once was a writer and bargainer
Who needed a critiquing pardner
She looked around much
Found “Books and Such”
And is now begging “Please, Rachelle Gardner”!
Most reflects St. Paddy’s Day:
by James Scott Bell
O’Gardner the agent? A wreck!
It was booze that he bought with his check.
Swaying home in the rain
He got hit by a train
Now he reps several angels on spec
Best acknowledgment of the REAL reason to enter this contest:
by Angela K Couch
T’was the beginning of St Patty’s Day,
Hours of rewriting and editing underway,
She stopped to write a limerick,
Just one more gimmick
That may lead to being published someday.
***And the winner is…
There once was a ravenous eater
possessing a new e-book reader.
She escaped to her nook,
gobbled book after book,
for nothing but good words could feed her.
Monica wins either a 30-minute consultation, or a $20 Amazon gift card.
THANKS everyone for joining the contest!
