to the tune of "On the Open Road" from A Goofy Movie
Do you haaaave
A dream to be an author?
Do you longgggg
To be in print someday?
If you want to write,
Take my advice:
Your triumph will
Be worth the price
So write it,
Just fill the empty page!
Suddenly, my ceiling's fascinating
Suddenly, my desk is all the rage
This plot is dumb; it just won't work
And I'm about to go berserk
I need to
Destroy the empty page!
The first draft's always stupid
But it will just improve
'Cause we will fight until the day is won!
*Friend confiscates Author's phone*
My phone, please don't forget me
You'll be returned someday
Though I may go insane before I'm done
Just relaaaaax and get the words on paper
This is worrrrse than a rejection letter
You'll begiiiiin to like it in no time
I'm so stummped; I think the story died
When I start a story, I could cry!
Y'know, that's funny--so could I!
Just starin' down at the empty page!
Will you boys
Be looking for an agent? ;)
Or stop this dumb charade
I'm in no hurry to submit
'Cause red ink will get spilled on it
Left as an empty page
A retreat away from all distractions!
There are parts
I think I need to change
*eyeing the manuscript, shocked*
And it's to the printing press for us!
My blogs will leave you in the dust
Replace each paper page!
With adjectives and gerunds
How could this not be fun?
English Major Graduates:
Here's to grammar
Without a big exam!
I need to run an errand
If I can think of one--
Oh, praise the Lord!
We're all out of spam!
All the writers:
Ev'ry day, another new idea!
Ev'ry hour, another dream to chase!
All the books we wrote
And still we grow
Yet I seem stunted, don't I know.
All the writers:
Creating's such a thrill
We're practicing our skill
How wonderful to fill
Ev'ry empty page!
