by 2016 Debut Author Lee Gjertsen Malone
- Wikipedia has an extensive list of one-hit wonders organized by decade. Not that there’s anything significant about that.
- Maybe I should just write a sequel! Wait, I killed everybody off at the end of the first one.
- What about a prequel? I hear those are all the rage these days.
- I rejoice in the erudition and alacrity with which my cogitations flow gracefully upon the page as a constellation of harmonious perfection.
- Me no know how write book good.
- Two words: Harper Lee
- If I convince my agent to sell this book before I write it, I can write it on the beach in Mexico.
- Why bother, my agent is going to hate this book.
- My agent will love this book, but all the editors are going to hate it, so there’s no point.
- Now that I think about it, I actually hate this book.
- They have Gilmore Girls streaming on Netflix now. All seven seasons. I’ll just say it’s research for my next YA novel…
- If they make my first book into a movie, who should star in it? I hope it’s not that guy from that show, you know that show…I hate that guy.
- Maybe it’s time to think about grad school. I could get an MFA! Nothing would be more inspiring than discussing my writing in a room full of authors who were born when I was in high school.
- I have so much more time now that I don’t have to stalk editors and agents on twitter, this book will practically write itself.
- I wonder many people have added my debut novel on Goodreads? I mean, since I checked this morning.
- Hold the phone, I know what I should do – write a blog!
