And Now For Something Completely Different

And now, without further ado, a song by the talented writer, Amanda M. Hayes:

THE SPEC WRITER SONG
(With all due apologies to Monty Python and their lumberjack.)

WRITER:
I'm a spec writer, and I'm okay;
I write all night and I sleep all day.

EDITORS:
She's a spec writer, and she's okay;
She writes all night and she sleeps all day.

WRITER:
I check my mail, I write through lunch,
I go to the lavatory.
I review my rejections,
And burn those from MZB.

EDITORS:
She checks her mail, she writes through lunch,
She goes to to the lavatory.
She reviews her rejections
And burns those from MZB.

She's a spec writer, and she's okay.
She writes all night and she sleeps all day.

WRITER:
I write of a sweet princess fair
Who travels through deep space
'Til she meets up with a werewolf
And he bites off her face.

EDITORS:
She writes of a sweet princess fair
Who travels through deep space...?
'Til she meets up with a werewolf
And he bites off her face?!

She's a spec writer, and she's okay.
She writes all night and she sleeps all day.

WRITER:
I write fanfic about Star Trek!
Delicious Spock/Kirk slash!
But paying 'zines won't buy it,
So they can kiss my--ahem.

WRITER AND EDITORS:
I (She) write(s) fanfic about Star Trek,
Delicious... Spock/Kirk slash?!?

WRITER:
But paying 'zines won't buy it,
So they can kiss my ash!

(Note: No actual MZB rejection slips were harmed in the making of this filk.)

A round of applause for Amanda! ((clap clap clap))

For more of Amanda's work, go buy the debut issue of Farthing which was unveiled at WorldCon. Go on, scoot! Amanda's work will also be appearing in an upcoming issue of Peridot Books. Congratulations, Amanda!
