If you’re a writer, one of three things is going to happen: you quit, you die, or you get published.
This is true. Mom is definitely a writer. She gets something published every now and then. Plus she quits every day. Sometimes more than once a day. When she’s working on a story, and her timer goes off, she says, “Time’s up. I quit.” When she’s trying to revise a story to make it shorter or longer or tighter, she says, “I don’t know what else to do here! I quit.” When she tries to make me roll over for a treat, she presses me down to the floor, pulls my legs, twists my head,and pushes my belly. Then she says, “Are you made of stone? Ugh. I quit.”
Mom says, “2012 is The Year of Book #2.” She has 2 New Years Resolutions to help her make Book #2 happen. She is planning to read 212 picture books, so they will all be inside her head. She will also write a brand new picture book manuscript every month for a game called #12x12in2012.
I hope this works and something new gets published. Otherwise, we may have to practice rolling over….
…or worse yet – fetching. UGH! I quit!
