What I Need Now

16 Nov

I need a catch phrase. I need something cool or witty or clever.

It’s like the perfect pair of jeans. I’ve spent hours trying on different phrases for my tag line and nothing fits. Part of my problem is that I’m a writer first and a blogger second. I’m not trying to offer encouragement to others about hard life situations, or raise awareness about specific health issues, or share cooking/shopping/housekeeping tips to others. I’m just trying to get myself out there so that when I write a book, people other than my family and a few nice friends will buy my book.

I’m feeling a deadline on this tag line thing because I’m participating in a blogger mug swap coordinated by A Belle, a Bean, and a Chicago Dog. I’m supposed to put my blog picture/tag line on a mug to send someone else. I have a picture to use, but no tag line. My mug needs something pizazzy on it, like an awesome tag line. Which I don’t have.

How about this one? Clever tag lines are like the perfect pair of jeans: I have neither.

Shh. I’m trying to write. What do you think about that one? Just made it up on the spot.

If my dear sweet husband weren’t on the phone, I’d make him come out here and think of something funny. He’s good at that. Dear Daughter A (#2) had to do an artsy sort of project. The 3rd graders have to disguise Tom the Turkey (silhouette of a turkey cut out of card stock) so that he will survive another Thanksgiving. Dear Son C (#1) disguised his as Darth Turkey a couple of years ago. Pretty cute. Anyway, A finally decided to turn her Tom into the Game of Life. Dear Husband came up with some of the squares on the new game board: Recruited by a talon scout, Received stove upgrade from free range cousin, Relative frozen – lose a turn. He’s a pun master. He should come up with my tag line.

I’m still working on this. How long can I avoid doing dishes by saying I’m a writer? This one has promise.

Do you have any suggestions?

    If Martha Stewart was a writer, she’d never find her glue gun.

    Just call me April, unless you’re the school principal then don’t call me I’ll call you.

        Can you tell I have kids? I’ve only got two and you have four. I’m totally impressed.
