The First Novel

Inspired by my sister's creation on her blog, I've written you a little Christmas tune of my own.  Enjoy...

The First Novel

The first Novel the author did say
Was to certain poor betas in computers they say;
In computers they read, critiquing their peeps,
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Novel, Novel, Novel, Novel,
Born is the next J.K. Rowling.
 
The apostrophes are ragged and weak
Slow down the pacing, and show me, don't tell.
Your prose is slight, try beefing it up.
And don't let me see you slacking, I'll beat you up.
Novel, Novel, Novel, Novel,
Born is the next Stephanie Meyer.

You've busted your butt, sing your praises out loud;
You sure have made your crit partner proud,
And with this manuscript you'll land that deal
With it will come the most awesome squeal.
Novel, Novel, Novel, Novel,
Born is the next Suzanne Collins.
