Writing Wednesday: Lightbulb Jokes for Writers

I wrote last week that I’m busy editing/rewriting my novel, so here’s something I picked up from the Write For Your Life website by Iain Broome:

Excerpt from http://writeforyourlife.net/writing-responsibility

How many writers does it take to change a light bulb?

It takes just one writer to change a light bulb. Sure, you can get your pals, your partner or your significant literary other to hold the ladder, but only you can do the dirty work. In the end, it’s about being responsible for the creative process. In good times and in bad. You’re the writer. No one else.

Comment from Martin Cooper:

How many literary agents does it take to change a light bulb?

None. It’s a really nice light bulb, they enjoyed switching it on and they loved the way it glowed, but they don’t think this is quite the right evening. Perhaps when it gets darker.


About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
