Millions For You Without A Clue!

Without a clue would sum up most as they go about their business from coast to coast. We could go everywhere with that. But I can't type all day where we are at. This was the fifth time I heard this the other day. Some really like to have their say.

"Oh, I always thought of writing a book."
They say after giving you a look.
It was always an idea up there.
Yep, there as they have room to spare.

"I just have to find the time."
Another line that comes with each chime.
Yep, like time is hard to find,
When half of it is spent sitting on your behind.

"I may do it one day."
Love when that gets given a say.
Means it is never going to happen,
As they keep on a rappin.

"I have a really great idea."
Yeah, sure the same thing is thought by North Korea.
See how well that is?
Maybe you like their isolated biz.

"I know it would make millions."
Hell, why not go for billions.
That is just as likely too.
Who doesn't want a golden loo?

"I'd have to write a sequel to it."
Yep, it would be such a hit.
You'd have to get that done.
Wait, you haven't even written one.

"Movie producers would want it."
My, aren't you the shit.
They'd come a knocking.
Fans everywhere would be flocking.

"I'd get a publishing contract forever."
You really are clever.
That will soooo come due.
They'd just bow down to you.

"Then I could retire."
What? Ideas would expire?
Go down in the sun and sand?
You've got your billions in hand.

"One day I'll write it."
And yet here you sit.
Enjoying talking about it?
Hint, that don't do shit.

Met any such nuts along the way? They sure like to have their say. Even their dog has an idea or two. They'd probably have better ones come due. The cat gave props to a mutt. I hope they won't sniff my butt. I'll just roll my eyes another ten times in mass. That is mostly what I do when these nuts bother my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. I say it's easier to say than to do
    and to those without a clue
    all I can say is good luck to you
    for many it is a game of chance
    but, all writer's dream of that dance
    takes a lot of work, that much is true

  8. It seems whenever you tell someone you're a writer/author, everyone says they've always wanted to write a book or have an idea for one. Really? It makes me wonder if they think it must be easy. Like, "She did it, so it must not be hard."

    ReplyDelete

    1. haha yeah makes me wonder that too

  9. Years ago, I wanted to write a book. I quickly realized my one paragraph wasn't going to go anywhere.
    I think I will stick to doing my little cookbooks and blogging.

  13. I think most of us have been involved in these kinds of conversations. I also love- you are so lucky that you wrote a book because I have always wanted to. But it's not lucky- lots of hard work. :)

  15. Oh yes, I love it when someone trivializes my profession right to my face.

    My favorite: Oh, I would have SUCH an interesting autobiography. My life has been CRAZY (while being completely mundane). I just know if I wrote the book about myself it'd sell millions and become a blockbuster movie. I should do that one day!

    Yeah, don't we all just sit on multi-million dollar talents? I really should join the Denver Broncos and throw for 400 yards a game, but I really just haven't gotten around to it yet.

  16. Maybe the trick to getting movie producers to get it is to write a novel that is about Johnny Deep and Tim Burton.
