For kicks: Funny Cat YouTube
Take this short quiz!
a. You're writing about your pet.
I know you think your pet is darling and precious, but try to wrap your mind around this: no one else cares.
(Note: Exceptions may be made if you're writing about EA's pet, who really is darling and precious--Book Roast team.)
b. You're writing about your grandchildren.
c. You think writing poetry is easy.
Rhyme doth not a poem make. On the other hand, it's impossible to mail me the sound of fingernails on a chalkboard, so why not send bad verse?
d. You think writing a children's book is easy.
I mean, children can barely read as it is, so how hard can it be to write for them? (www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail84.html)
e. You're writing about squirrels.
Seriously, what is it with the squirrel manuscripts recently? There must be something in the water. Something squirrely.
EA seems to have an irrational fear of squirrels. We don't understand.
Let's talk about EA's cat (pictured above), Robert Munsch, pink clothing, celebrity books, or good luck charms.
