Writing Memes: An Open Book Blog Hop post


Welcome to Open Book Blog Hop. You can find us every Monday talking about the writing life. I hope you'll check out all the posts: you'll find the links at the bottom of this post.

What are your favorite writing-related memes?

I do enjoy a good writing meme. I think my favorite are the classic literature takes: 

This might be because I co-host the monthly classics book club at my library. But I think I'm also charmed by the mixture of something so old (classic lit) with something much newer (memes). These memes always seem to hit on the heart of why these works endure, too. 

I am also fond of the "you should be writing" memes. 

A little humor alongside the nudge to focus is always appreciated. There's always something to get between a writer and her words, and I seem to always run across one of these when I'm procrastinating or letting myself get distracted. 

Then, there's the gallows humor, commiseration over the difficulties, like these "writer problem" themed ones: 

They make me smile, because they're both true and funny. 

How about you? Are there any particular writing or reading life memes that you love? I'd love to hear about them in the comments. And don't forget to check out the rest of the blog hop at the link below!

  1. The Austen/Bronte one is so accurate. Makes me chuckle every time. Tweeted.

  2. I love them, there are so many, no wonder I can lose a writing afternoon reading them.

  3. So true. I do worry about my internet history!

  4. Lol, wasn't Pete Townshend 'researching' a book when the police took away his PC?

  5. You can't go wrong with a good meme to lighten up your day.
