Humor for Writers – Writer Going Green

By Patricia de Hemricourt

John Storywriter and two of his neighbors are debating what they could personally do to reduce global warming.

“I think my best bet is to green my house” says the Mark, an engineer. “Solar panels, insulation etc., you know…”

“Of course, you can do that, easily, you’ve got the skills. Me, it would cost me too much,” answers Jack, the other neighbor, stuck in a clerical job with low pay. “Can’t afford to do that. What I could do, though, is to switch from driving to work to biking to the train station and leave the car at home. Might even benefit my health actually, and with the constant rise in petrol price, it would also save me a bunch” he smirked.

“I guess my best bet is to forget about finding a publisher and self-publish on Amazon and such,” says John.

The two others burst out laughing. “What, all your books that never got printed will still not get printed? How does that make any difference?”

“Oh no, not at all,” shrugs John. “I was thinking of the realms of paper wasted in rejection letters that would be saved.”

    This is so funny because of the truth in tragedy. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Exactly so! I really don’t miss the rejection letters or the crooked paper notes stuffed into the envelope I provided that told me nothing at all beyond “not for us”. Self-publishing=self-fulfilling.
