Writer Montage Thoughts

Some of those lines from the previous post were great. Weren’t they?

I liked the one about the unpublished guy who says, “I’m a playwright. I write unproduced plays.” I had a line similar to that for many years.

And then there was the one about the genre that was all over the place: “It’s an action, suspense, romantic melodrama with lots of comedy, of course.” Now that one hit close to home because nobody is 100% sure what my genre is. If you take out the suspense in the above quote, you may very well have a description on my genre. But what would that be called?

And what writer hasn’t heard something like this: “It’s not that it’s bad. It’s just not good enough.”

LOL. I can relate.

Um.... call it a Tragedy. Because it won't get published without a clear direction.

Better yet... Book. I am a writer. Life. I write about it all.

I just say I am a writer. I don't try to qualify myself. The publishers will do that for me, if I can ever get published again. :-)
