Magic 8 Ball

Remember the Magic 8 Ball from when you were a kid? You asked it all kinds of important questions like, Does Luke like me? Will Ashley invite me over this weekend? Will I go to prom?

I treated the Magic 8 Ball like it was sacred. It's answers WERE TRUE. If Magic 8 Ball said so, then it would happen!

And I imagine if I had a Magic 8 Ball once I started querying, I probably would have asked it a few publishing related questions just for the hell of it. (And I would have even hoped in my heart-of-hearts that what it said was true.)

Here is the writer's version of a Magic 8 Ball.













Thank God there isn't REALLY a writer's Magic 8 Ball. That thing would drive me crazy. And I couldn't refrain from asking it my important publishing questions. I have no self-control.

  1. I just gave away my Hello Kitty Magic 8 Ball. (Was not a real Magic 8 Ball, but same concept.) In the end, it didn't give me real answers, no matter how cute it was.

    Then again, I didn't think to ask it writing questions ...

  2. Great post!

    I found a mini Magic 8 Ball in the park not too long ago, but based on its responses, I'm pretty sure it was broken. That's probably why someone tossed it in the park.

  3. Ani --- Hello Kitty made a Magic 8 Bal?! That stuff is everywhere.

    Loretta --- :D Thanks!

    Alissa --- Thanks! :P Unless someone got the wrong answer to their question and chucked it to the curb!
