There Once Was a Limerick...

Updated: Mar 19

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.
