I love Twitter. I love reading agents’ and authors’ thoughts and quips, and seeing their interactions with each other. I remarked once in a tweet that sometimes Twitter feels like middle school. You watch these people and feel like they could be your friends…as long as you don’t approach them. The writing world is a tight-knit community, and I am still on the fringes, still outside looking in. It’s not that they are deliberately exclusive…it’s the nature of the world. Tonight I found myself humming “Part of your World” from The Little Mermaid and I made up some lyrics relating to myself. It’s all in fun 😉
Look at this book
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t it make
Your collection complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who writes…all the things!
Look at this tweet
It’s funny and neat
Agents and authors and pubs do compete
Sharing their thoughts with the world
Their words are so very sweet
They get queries and novels aplenty
They see previews and sneak peeks galore
Go to conferences?
How ’bout twenty?
We all care
About book deals
And I want moooooore
I wanna be where the agents are
I wanna see, wanna see em reading
Gasping in awe as the flip and say
What’s the word?
Getting rejected won’t get me far
I wanna see
A request for pages
Waiting around for that
Out where they read
Out where they laugh
Out where they help you on with your path
Watch and you’ll see
Someday I’ll be be
Part of that world….
