Distraction Friday

Addendum: The greats over at YAtopia are holding an Agent Pitch Contest. In two sentences, hook them with your Young Adult MS. Well? What are you waiting for?

I mentioned on Twitter how my mom has a friend who wants to write a book about her “struggles” in a lawsuit. This friend is convinced it would be a best seller. God help me if she ever finds out I’m a writer. She’ll want my help getting it published, or worse, to write it for her.

Yeah…no. Not a chance in hell. I don’t want to get sued. In fact, I’m afraid of revealing too much detail because I might get sued. Litigious isn’t a strong enough word for this person.

So in that vein of obliviousness, here’s your distraction Friday, first tweeted to me by Blank Slate Press.

Get Published!: So You Want to Be a Writer Cartoon:


  1. I've seen this before. It's hilarious. And yes, best stay clear of Mom's friend.

  2. Stay far, far away! Love the cartoon.

  3. It's funny how people will say they have this great story that would make a bestseller, and if you write it for them they'll split the profits with you. So tempting, but no thanks.

  4. I love that toon...

    ...and yes, stay as far away from that friend of your mother as possible. Say not one word about writing... or she'll suck you in like a black hole.

    In the words of King Arthur in Monty Python & The Holy Grail: Run away! Run away!

  5. I love this one. And sadly, its spot on with conversations I've actually had. 0_0

  6. Hi,
    How are you?
    Love this cartoon. Very cute!

  7. Yikes! Sometimes I wonder what planet people have beamed in from. You are wise to keep clear of her.

  8. I love that clip! And thanks for the Pitch Contest link!
