Yikes! I am crazy busy and the December IWSG Day is upon me...

Howdy, Insecure Writers! Thanks for showing me the way, Candi! And thanks to the amazing Alex J. Cavanaugh for hosting this awesome group, over three hundred strong! Visit as many as you can!Yes, it's time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group!
The awesome co-hosts for the December 4 posting of the IWSG will be Julie Flanders, Heather Gardner, Kim Van Sickler and Elsie is Writing!

With no further ado.
Visions  of "literary grandeur"dance in my head...

On the Twelfth day of Musemas,
My genius gave to me:
Twelve stellar reviews,
Eleven lit awards,
Ten thousand followers,
Nine viral clips,
Eight royalty checks,
Seven perfect revisons,
Six bluebird opportunites,
Five fan letters,
Four agents calling,
Three new contracts,
Two great ideas,
and a full request in the email.
I hope it goes this way for all this month!

Please check out
my serious side
over at Seize the day.
This is my backyard,
you know, you can't see it
from the street,
and in keeping with
the spirit of the Yellow Submarine,
I write everything here in broken prose,
because, yes, that's how
many of us feel.

Thanks for dropping by!
In the words of the great poet,
Sir Paul McCartney,
"We all live in a yellow submarine."


  1. If only some of those events transpired for us it would be a very good month indeed! Have a great December!

  3. That is an awesome song! I love it.

  4. hehe Great song! It's even funnier when you try to put it to the tune of "12 Days..."

    1. My love for musical theater is showing here.
