“The proposal will not write iself1”
I’m tryin’, muse, I’m tryin’,
but I’d rather fight a Tolkien elf
or offer head to mouth of lion.
Synopsis…what a beastly word,
so single-spaced and dry,
and it’s the place, or so I’ve heard
where good writing goes to die.
To find the comps that fit my book
we’ll have to pray for grace,
for who with like inspiration took
up Amish zombies, come from space?
And what should the bio entail,
since I wrote the thing whilst in gaol?
Aargh…last word, first line, should obviously be ‘…itself!”
KNEW I should not have had that second bottle of champagne for breakfast.
This is awesome, Andrew! So much fun. Thank you!
I’m glad you enjoyed it, Chad!
