Happy Birthday to The Writers’ Loft!
The Loft turns ONE in March! To celebrate, here is a little parody for you to enjoy, linking to some of the past and future Loft happenings:
IF YOU GIVE A WRITER A ROOM
If you give a writer a room, she’s going to stay and write.
After she writes, she’s probably going to ask you for a PB critique group.
Once her manuscript gets critiqued, she may ask how to storyboard it.
Then she’ll want to revise one more time to make it better.
When she revises, she might notice that it wasn’t the genre she thought it was.
So she’ll ask for a different critique group.
When she’s finished getting feedback, she’ll start querying.
She might get carried away and query every agent and editor in the business.
When she’s done, she’ll probably want to take a nap.
When an email alert wakes her up, she’ll go online to check and realize she needs a website.
Once she has a website, she’ll write a blogpost about querying.
Blogging will make her want to socialize with all the Loft writers commenting on her site.
Socializing will probably make her want to hear everyone’s pitches.
When she hears about everyone’s great writing projects,
she’ll get excited to write another idea of her own.
She’ll start writing a new book.
And if she starts writing a new book, she’ll probably want a room to write in.
