There Once Was a Limerick...

Updated: Mar 19, 2023

The thing about limericks is that once one gets writing, it's hard to stop.

There once... DLB 2023

There once was an author who grinned

While six chapters a day, she penned.

But as copious edits,

Brought mind-splitting headaches,

Her grinning soon came to an end.

A writer went to a conference

To do a little reconnaissance.

She made seven new friends,

Met three agents and then

Grew in her writerly confidence.

A novelist wrote up some fiction—

A hero, a plot with some friction.

His agent was pleased,

But his editor sneezed,

Vexed by generic depictions.
