The Writer Mom Comic Returns!

The adventures of Writer Mom return! Today’s comic is straight from my real life, I couldn’t get the idea out of my head for a few days and knew I had to make it. Enjoy!

Writer Mom realizes that bedtime stories will never be the same.

  1. Good one! It’s hard to read without thinking of writing..

    • Agreed! Once you’ve started editing anything you look at everything with a critical eye. Half the time they are the books that have been around for years, kid classics.

  2. How many times have I re-written books as i write them? Let me count the times. . .Not only that, but I tell myself, “Sheesh! I could do better than that!” I mean I actually fool myself into believing that, but I never do write it, except for one horrible story! (Never more to see the light of day after a brief blog appearance). Just chicken I guess. Afraid I would rewrite it as I read it. . .

    • And (tee hee hee) I know where that blog is…

      My lips are sealed, I submitted one to her as well and it’s not one of my better pieces.

      I hope that when the time comes I will know when to stop editing and start selling!

  3. Excellent. And it’s true. Either there are more typos in books these days than before I started to write seriously, or I’m more attuned. ))

    • I vote for the being more attuned. Before this whole writing thing I would read whole books just for the experience of being transported somewhere new. Now, it’s different – reading can’t be 100% for pleasure anymore. We must search for how things are created, to learn, to grow.

      I guess it’s kinda like magic, once you want to learn the trade it’s really hard to be amazed.

  4. I like this. Would enjoy seeing them regularly.

    • I have a few more ideas up my sleeves, there will be more – I promise!

  5. Ha ha. Loved it!

  6. Very cute. I’m sure this comic strikes a chord in the hearts of other “writer moms.”

    • I sure hope so! What’s even worse are kids TV shows where they go above and beyond to make a simple problem like how to get to grandma’s house take the whole episode and involve a rocketship, a slingshot, and possibly a train.

  7. Perfect, Jo!
