A Time To File

"Did you know that every morning I wake up and HATE YOU because you work from home and can snore away for another hour, while I have to go out and join the commuting masses?"

"Well, if you became a filthy rich author then you too could work from home!"

"Ha! Only JK Rowling gets to do that."

"Hmmm. You could write legal blockbusters like John Grisham!"

"But I'm not a lawyer! I'm a lowly administrator. I'd have to write A Time To File and The Coffeemaker. Or The Runaway Stapler."

"Or maybe you could churn out Barbara Cartland-style romance novels with an administration theme."


"Like, Algernon took Stacey into the stationery cupboard and gave it to her from behind!"

"Just the way she likes it!"

"Then she couldnae walk proper for a week!"


"See, this writing lark is totally easy."

  1. well I don’t know if the “writing lark is easy,” but you certainly seem to toss off these blog entries with remarkable utility Shauna.

    I’ve said it before: please say you’re actually writing something that is ultimately to be a published work (as in paper and ink published, not zeroes and ones e-published) because the world is missing out on your wit, wisdom and smarmy charm.


  2. Hehe. J’adore votre travaille; si vous ecrire un roman, je le vais lire.
    Sorry about the french, I’m a strange mood. Good luck for the bloggies and the book, anyhoo!

  3. You really, really must become a published writer!! No one else can make me laugh so much while sitting at my computer. You have a way of seeing life in a totally different way – you NEED to be a writer!!


  4. Shauny you are totally fab and certainly have what it takes to write something that is worth selling. I’d even buy the Algernon & Stacey book because it would be a great laugh!
    So go get busy!!

  5. living with a work-at-home writer.poet, god this is true. leaving the cosy house for a dark morning is agony.

  6. Heh, publish selected blog entries, if you can’t think of anything else! Actually, that might work…

    Whatever you do, I do hope you’ll publish someday!

  7. Being already acquainted with the goodness that is WNP, I was perusing some other Bloggie nominated sites (I THINK one of the Aussie ones) and noticed that they should to be under the initial impression that you and Rhi were a couple.

    Made me giggle. Not ENTIRELY sure why…
