IF this was a query

Of course I would have signed him on the spot.

Wow, is that how you get it done? I've been doing it all wrong. I've been typing, editing, and rewriting and all this time I only needed a bottle.

JustineDell said...

Hahaha...laugh of the day. Thanks!

Ohmigod, I think I laughed up a lung. Way too funny. Way too true...

GalaktioNova said...

What a coincidence, I've just been on the publisher's site! Has to be a sign from above for me to go and order his books :-)

He's obviously doing something right :-)

THANKS A LOT!!

Malin said...

Hm... *trying to figure out a way to add a video into an email without attaching it and thus have the query rejected*

Shelley Watters said...

Hilarious!

Dawn Hullender said...

Well damn, I've been doing it wrong all this time. I've ACTUALLY been writing.

Maybe I need to adopt his writing schedule....

Hmmm..

Dan Krokos said...

Jeff's face at :38 made me laugh so hard.

Malia Sutton said...

Looks like me after a three week deadline for a novel, writing four thousand words a day.

Kate Evangelista said...

I was giggling my way throughout the video. Yup, it just about sums a writer's day.

Furious D said...

BAH!

I'm staring blankly at my computer monitor and downing Cutty Sark at 8:00 AM!

Where's the work ethic these days!

suzie townsend said...

hahah, my favorite part is the cat :)

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

Cracked me up! Brilliant! I can be a bit the same sometimes - minus the Cutty!

Margaret Yang said...

Since the cat isn't drinking, I can only assume she is the one penning the brilliant prose while Jeff Somers takes all the credit.

Lydia Sharp said...

That is an insulting stereotype; some of us don't have a cat.

My favorite part is the cat. Also, this proves my mom's point about needing some sort of day job to keep your head from being perpetually in the clouds.

DeadlyAccurate said...

I'm thinking of trying Jeff's method.

Glen Akin said...

Lol no you wouldn't. But it's still an awesome video

Huntress said...

switch the Jack for Godiva chocolate and this portrayal becomes veerrrrry familiar.

Joylene said...

Now I get it~! I need to drink, stay up late, sleep all day, and drool. No wonder I'm getting nothing done.

kitty said...

I think I'm missing something here. Yeah, it was funny. But he didn't write a word all day, right? So why would you sign him on the spot?

Janet Reid said...

Kitty, it was a joke. Like the video. I should have put in this: ;

kitty said...

HA HA HA !!! O-wa t-goo si-am.

My husband will die laughing when he hears about this. He once said if he were ever to a book about me he'd name it 'Gullible's Travels.'

Tawna Fenske said...

So if I swap out my wine for whiskey, I'll write like Jeff Somers? Excellent!

Oh, wait. My editor might have a problem with this, as she's expecting quirky romantic comedy.

Will stick with Chianti for now.

Yeah.. except we need the close-up shot, where the dude is on twitter from 12:05-2:00.. WHILE he's drinking. Then before he drifts off to blissful slumber.. he writes..on FACEBOOK.
