Excerpt from 'Woofs of Wisdom on Writing' by CorgiScribe; illustrated by Susan Alison

Night and/or day

Some pups rival the nocturnal habits of owls
tapping away into the bowels
of night getting down their howls
of creative birth.

They end up with permanent writerly scowls,
bags under their eyes down to their jowls,
loads of prose with not enough vowels,
and an increasing girth.

But despite the leg-aching midnight prowls,
the frustrated and often nonsensical growls,
the slapping of faces with wet towels
– for some of us it can be of great worth!

Others of us need to sleep at night
and only work in the light
of day.
That is to say:

don’t be wary
if you vary
from the ‘norm’.

Because there isn’t one.

Yayyy!!! Woofs of Wisdom on Writing is published!!!

Thank you, Gail! We're pleased it's now seeing the light of day. CorgiScribe (and Jeff-Dog) have been nagging long enough...
