If You Give A Writer…

I have no idea what made me think of this, but I had a lot of fun with it and I hope you enjoy it. It’s based off the children’s book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff.

If You Give a Writer

If you give a writer a pen, she’ll want a notebook to go with it.

If you give her a notebook, she’ll fill it up and complain her hand hurts.

If her hand hurts, she’ll ask for a computer.

If she asks for a computer, you’ll have to go to the store to buy one.

If you go to the store, she’ll spend hours picking one out.

When she finally decides, she’ll want to start using it right away.

If she wants to use it right away, you’ll have to set it up.

When you finally set it up, it’ll be nighttime.

If it’s nighttime, she’ll ask for coffee to keep her awake.

If you give her coffee, she’ll ask for more.

If you give her more, she’ll ask for more.

And more.

And more.

When she finally crashes, you’ll have to go to bed.

Because when morning comes, you’ll have to do it all over again.

This is probably one of the weirdest things I’ve ever written… But I had fun with it and I hope you found it at least a little bit funny!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

  1. Don’t forget the other half: But if you show her how to make her own pen, she’ll make a huge mess in your living room and blame you for ruining her blouse. Then write a poem about it making you the villain, post in on social media and read it in front of you at open mikes.

Let me know what you think!
