P is for...

Poo!

Sorry, but that word is so funny. I just had to use it. And yes! It fits into my writing theme. Some writers muck poo out of their horses stalls. *wonders how these horses could go so much* Some writers (namely me) write poo on their first drafts.

Pack away. What writers do with manuscripts after they revise. Then they pull (another P word, did ya notice that?) the MS back out and revise fifty more times. Sometimes the MS stays packed away, because the writer is annoyed that he/she wrote such crud. *sigh*

Paper. Writers print their magnum opus out, and send it off into the world. Yes, some agents require this.

Paper clips. Uh yeah, writers use these by the ton.

Paragraph. If you write books, you gots to understand what this means.

Parade. Writers love these, because they dream that they are being honored in the parade. WHAT? Oh, I'm the only one who dreams that??? *blushes*

  2. Well, that was too funny! You should have a warning label, that reading this on first cup of coffee can cause coffee to spew out one's nose.

    I write more, but I hear a parade...

  4. More awesome P words. I forgot all the paper supplies when I listed mine. Post-its. Must acknowledge them today.

  5. So immature!

    Don't forget, if there are horses in a parade, there's also poo.

  11. Well, you know how I feel about poo. And Robyn, when your book is published I'm totally going to find a way to have a parade for you.

  13. Hehehe. But I must be a bit odd because I don't use paperclips. Off to re-evaluate my status as a writer now...
