Yet Another Saturday

It was my hope that on Saturdays I would be able to post a regular line of writer-related to jokes. After all, we writers all seem to express a certain degree of stress, and I think we could all do with a good laugh.

However, the internet seems to disagree with me, and it refused to provide me with further author jokes. Why is it that people seem to have decided that writers just aren't a funny topic of conversation? I think we're awesome.

If anyone knows a good (or bad) joke about authors, please post it in the comment section. We could all use a smile.

On an unrelated note, The Thief Book is coming along. Once I've done my Saturday typing, I shall have cracked 50k in typed words. Back at the start of the month, I had thought that would put me near the end of the book, except I was very wrong about how long this book is. If everything goes the way I hope, I should be close to the end of the book by the end of the month. I should finish this in a fortnight.

I'm learning a lot with this second draft. Which is good, even if it does just mean that I know there is going to be a third and fourth after it. Okay, so there being more drafts was basically as certain as the sun rising, but I know now I'm devoting whole drafts to solving certain problems. So this is far from finished.

How was everyone else's week?


  1. About the same. I'm on draft #3 of the same book. I'm hoping this one will be the one I stick with, but one never knows...

  2. I'm thinking you may have seen this site, but I'll give you the link anyway. Hope you find some good writer jokes. We could all use a good laugh.

  3. Susan -- Well, I hope this draft is everything you hope it will be. :D

    Karen -- I'll check it out. Thanks. :)
