An Ode….

An ode (that’s technically a limerick) to my husband, in honor of his patient creativity in helping me re-plot my novel this weekend:

There once was a man whose writer wife had

Written a book whose problems drove her mad

She asked him plot questions

Nagged for edits, suggestions

With a sigh, he gave advice ironclad*


young kraken 2*Though this wife is a professionally-trained writer, I’d never dare to claim any standing as a poet. (I think that’s pretty evident, based on my performance above.) But given my kraken-esque appetite for relentlessly forcing book questions on my husband (and the other dear people in my life), it only seems right to give them an (un)poetic shout-out every now and again.
