Novel in my head - Answer to billybuc's “The Greatest Writer No One Has Heard Of”

Updated on July 3, 2016
Source

Invitation to the Pity Party

Inspired by William D. Holland – To billybuc and our Fellow Authors

It seems to me that Bill (billybuc) was/is in a funk and to Bill I want to say “Thank You” for your “Pity Party” invite.

My note to Bill

Bill,

I am writing a poem to you and all our friends

To kick you out of this funk

That you or any one of us is in

And it turned into a sonnet

About how we authors love to write


The Novel inside my head

© by Shyron Shenko

It is obvious that you have read

My one and only novel

And with that being said

I don’t know how you got to it

In amongst the clutter

Because it has not been published

And it’s still inside my head

Thank you for the invite to your pity party

Pity you and pity me

Just look at what you have started

But you must surely know

You will never be forgotten

By the greatest “Author” that anyone could know

As He continues to write

About all the greatest “Authors” that He knows

In His book of Life

Just imagine if God had writer’s block

He might omit you or me


Going by the Book

      Hello Peggy, my beautiful friend, thank you for the comments, I appreciate you.... Yes this was a fun hub to write, I love the camaraderie of all the Hubbers who have chimed in here, even the ones who did not write verses. I am so happy that you joined us.

      Blessings and Hugs

      Hi Shyron,

      This was certainly a different hub to read...not only because of your poem at the top for Bill but also the prose responses you posted to comments and some you got in return. You must have had a lot of fun with this one!

      As to being written out of the story...as long as we are in His book of life...we will continue on in an even better way. That is a nice thought!

      The comments in this thread are as cool as this poetic response to Bill, dear Shyron.

      Au fait, thank you so much for reading, commenting and for sharing.

      If this world is a computer simulation, who is pressings the keys? Why are we allowed to have computers inside a computer? Who fixes the simulated computer when something goes wrong? I hope that someone writes in the script that all is well with you.

      We sold ALL of John's farm equipment yesterday.

      Hope you are staying in where it is cool.

      I was going to call you last night, but we talked to Kevin for four hours and both phones went dead. I will try to call you tonight.

      Blessings and Hugs dear friend.

      Theresa, my precious friend,

      The pity was taken out of the party

      I am so glad you're here

      Welcome, come on in

      SHYRON you have such a great mind and writing this hub is an encourages many writers. A smart and kind person to have to write something that is so meaningful and from the heart.

      I've read that this world is nothing more than a computer simulation. Some scientists insist all the signs and proof that we are only someone's imagination are there and irrefutable. If they are correct, any one of us, or all of us, could be written out of the story at any time. Sharing.

      Hope you are surviving the heat and staying in where it's cool. Blessings and hugs to you dear friend. Take care . . .

      Frank, sorry you were in the hideout

      When the invitations went out

      There was no pity

      But the party is still going on

      I am so happy you decided to come along

      Blessings always my friend

      Ruby, Ruby my gem of a friend

      Your ideas are spinning around and around

      I will spin a fictitious yarn just for you

      A tall tale I hope will leave you spell bound

      With a mysterious clue where the gold can be found

      Where love and passion can be found

      With a run-away bride still wearing her gown

      Her heart still aching for the last love she let down

      So Blessings and hugs dear Ruby, I must get it done

      Or I will still be sitting here writing with rising sun

      Mike,

      I am thrilled with your poetry

      About going on a writing spree

      If I should pop the cork on the Bordeaux

      I am afraid in my head it would start to snow

      And white-out my words and do it slo…..w

      Things could get fuzzy real quick

      In fact I would probably get really sick

      Your encouragement did the trick

      You have awakened my muse and gave her a kick

      So… here I go, I’m back on the trail

      To ferret out facts and spin a tall tail

      *

      I hope you had a hot popping Fourth of July

      Bill, I am so glad you were/are not in a funk

      Without you writing here I would feel real punk

      Surely you must see

      You give so much to our community

      And when you look out there

      Yes we, your fellow Hubbers really do care

      *

      Hope you had a Happy 4th to you and Blessings and Hugs too

      You say " A novel is in your head "

      Would it be a mystery or series thread?

      Perhaps a comedy with a romantic twist?

      Or a fantasy of a lad on a magical quest?

      Or a drama involving a conflict between lovers

      Or a murder when wife's husband discovers

      The possibilities are emerging from my rhyming mind

      My muse telling me to chill, she's so sweet and kind

      Guess I've given you enough ideas to think about?

      When your novel is published, give me a shout...

      Oh so clever

      But never say never

      Drop in the nickle

      and pull the lever

      ...

      Let the novel go

      you are in control

      Pop the cork on the bordeaux

      The words will flow and flow

      ...

      No need for you to postpone

      Find your meter and your tone

      You too can be unknown

      Like the rest of us have shown

      ...

      ...

      Happy fourth of July

      Oddly, Shyron, I wasn't in a funk when I wrote that. It was just something playful that I thought of....but I love your response to it and I thank you for thinking about me and caring enough to do this.

      Happy 4th of July!

      Shyron, this was a good tribute to Bill and all the other great writers among us who may not get the accolades they deserve. Love the poems.
