I'll make Writers out of you

by KnightTeen


Lets get down to business,
And break out the pens.
Did they send me spambots
In place of girls and men?

Your writings the worst
I've ever seen,
So don't you preen,
But before we're through,
Guys I will
Make writers
Out of you.


You sure ain't a Shakespeare.
Buts there's a spark,
Within.
Once you conquer writers block
You are sure to win.

You're an inky, tired, frustrated lot.
And you haven't got a clue.
Somehow I'll make writers,
Out of you.

Great, now I can't move my hands!
Farewell to my social lifestyle!
Boy was I a fool for thinking I'd be perfect.

The Narrators got us scared to death!
Hope she misses all my mistakes!
Now I wish last night I hadn't gotten wrecked!

Be writers!
You must be swift as a speeding car
(Be writers)
With all the wisdom of Jane Austen
(Be writers)
Lets try not to write another Twilight
Don't forget the dark side of your muse!

Deadlines will race towards you
As publishers demand.
Heed their every order
And prepare your hands.

You're not suited for
Us or our store
So pack up
Shut down
You're through.

How could you
Ever become
A Writer?

Be writers!
You must be swift as a speeding car
(Be writers)
With all the wisdom of Jane Austen
(Be writers)
Lets try not to write another Twilight
Don't forget the dark side of your muse!

This is soooooo good!
It has a nice beat to it and you could sing it(or is it meant to be sang :))
The part about Twilight almost killed me from laugh!
I mean i like Twilight but it's a really good joke...
And it tells everybody, that you can be a writer or whatever you want to be!
This song is very inspiring and i could never write something like this.
Congratulations! :)

It's a parody of I'll make a man out of you from Mulan.
You should listen to the song ( if you haven't already). It's great.

I loved it. I agree with the twilight part, because twilight was okay, just not my thing. And You did so well with everything. From Title to the last sentence!!!!
The best part, to me was the fallowing lines:

"Be writers!
You must be swift as a speeding car
(Be writers)
With all the wisdom of Jane Austen
(Be writers)
Lets try not to write another Twilight
Don't forget the dark side of your muse!

I love it! I love the original song from Mulan, so I naturally loved the way this was written! You've used nice vocabulary and good language.....mostly!

Your punctuation needs just a BIT of working...I'm sure you can fix that. Like how in 'writer's block', you wrote ''WRITERS block', and other teeny errors like this.

The line ''Let's not try to write another Twilight'' had me in fits! :) Soooooooo true!

I don't really agree with the Jane Austen one, cos' I think her books are all mushy romance (hmm..Pride and Prejudice, anyone?) But whatever!

Good one!

Keep it up!

Mysticalxx






I do agree with the part about Twilight. We should DEFINITELY try our hardest to not write another Twilight series. xD

This was EPIC! Not only did this poem lift my spirits and make me want to watch Mulan, but now I feel inspired enough to write at least 100 pages of work. Let's face it: writer's block is the real enemy here, and we can either choose to surrender to it or tackle it head on. I'm just wondering how long it took you to come up with this and how you came up with the concept in the first place. Perhaps there was not much predetermined thoughts about this because we all struggle with writers block. Surely, you certainly know how to deal with it! :)

My image of this is you and I standing up there, looking over our troops and singing this in the style of General Shang. The role of General Shang is split between you and I.

I am only saying this because everyone at school always came to me to get criticism on their papers and I was always like "No, no, no" *pulls out red marker* "That's not how you do it at all!" lol

Sorry for the grandiosity, but it's kinda true.

You and I, my dear, sweet Elsea, we shall make writers out of young girls and boys and conquer the world with the Might of the Mighty Pen, despite the redundance of the term I just penned with the Might of the Mighty Pen.




KnightTeen says...


Awwww thanks.

Is Elsa my new nickname?



Spotswood says...


No...Elsea is. I took away the C and the H



KnightTeen says...


Ohhhh. I get it now.

Thought that was a typo. :)



Spotswood says...


did you make your gmail?



KnightTeen says...


No, I've been having some issues with that. My browser doesn't like it.

try again!!! We need at least another girl. lets talk on your or my page from now on

Ha, ha, ha! Love it! This was the best song on 'Mulan' and I still think the movie is great though I'm a bit old for such things!:) I'm all for Disney songs-- I'm constantly singing them and my family hates me for it.;) I think the Jane Austen reference is awesome: love her books. And the part about 'Hope she misses all my mistakes' cracked me up because I can totally relate.
Just a side question: do you like, or dislike 'Twilight'? I get the feeling you don't but wasn't sure. Just curious... (I don't really care for them myself so, if you don't either then I love that your making a personal jibe at them.:)
Ok so criticism, (Which I'm not very good at because I don't want to hurt any feelings, but in case I do, be assured I did not intend to and I apologize in advance.) I have to agree with CuriosityCat-- what on earth does a speeding car have to do with writing? However, having tried to write my own lyrics to music before I know how difficult it is. Other then that I find no faults. (See? I told you I was no good at criticism.)
Anyway, excellent work!
PS. Would love to read more of this sort of thing! Please write again!




KnightTeen says...


I have no idea. I was having trouble with that part, and finally was like, "Forget this!" and just through the car thing in there.

I have to admit that I hate Twilight. To me, it is the story of a girl who developed Stockholm Syndrome. Falling in love with the guy who stuck into your room and watched you sleep=creepy.

Plus, vampires should not sparkle. They should be epic, like @Lucrezia's version.



KnightTeen says...


*threw

not through

Agreed. 100%.

Well,I listened to the original song while reading thisXD
This is really amazing,I expecially love the Twilight line,I guess only by digging down to the darkest side of one's muse will someone wrote something like Twilight.
I am really appreciative of your work here,since I will start my writing career soon,(about a few review),It is encouraging for me to read a poem about being a writer.Wish I can be more amount of a spambot and find my own spark =),again, Fantastic work here.




KnightTeen says...


Don't be a spambot! Those things are bad.

And I don't know if Twilight is found at the darkest side of your muse.
I hate those books. :P If you like them, I'm sorry but I have to be honest.
Twilight is an insult to women.

Thanks so much!

CuriosityCat wrote a review...



Hey, CuriosityCat, here to review! I just wanted to say, first thing, that this is really funny! Mulan is probably laughing in her grave. I was part of the school play Mulan, once, and so I know all the words. Definitely one of the greatest productions of a sugar-high ever! I love the idea. It sounds like SOMEONE is in need of a serious writing tutor!
Anyway, I just have some nitpicks. They kind of take away form the overall AWESOMENESS of the song, so I wanted to tell you what they are.

First: Your writings the worst/i've ever seen. "Writings the" should be either "writing's the", (as in "writing is") or "your writings are".
Second: You must be swift as a speeding car. I'm sorry, but I don't get how a speeding car has anything to do with writing. You could try something like "You must be swift as a racing plot line", or something. That's kind of cheesy, though, so you might want to make your own.
Third: Boy, was I a fool for thinking I'd be perfect. Just wanted to say that "perfect" throws off the rhyme scheme. Try "Boy was I a fool for thinking I could be great.", or something.

If I'm being harsh, I'm really sorry. This is my first review. So don't get me wrong, I love this, and it's really awesome!!

Hi KnightTeen, Tulip here to give you a review on this piece of poetry.


When I thought i had seen some weird things on here, before I go and find yet another thing to read, I somehow manage to find something that makes me smile. Well, Knight, you have succeeded in making this girl- who hates to smile- smile, which could only mean one thing. You have written a marvelous piece of literature.

I have found blah, blah, and blah mistakes in your work. Note the joking use of blah, blah, blah here. I have found NO Mistakes in this poem/song. It is so well written that I could almost imagine the scene in Mulan where they are singing "I'll Make a man out of you" only they are singing the words of this.

I love the reference to Twilight, and the implied meaning of how terrible written it was. I mean, come on it is degrading to women! At least with the reference you have to Mulan, by using the song's format, it is from a movie in which they showed that women don't always have to have a man to protect them.

I have nothing else to say and nothing negative to say, so it is here that I bid you good day.

~Tulip.

I like how you used Mulan as your writing base. The song Is a favorite of mine too. Maybe you can use another one of there songs to inspire the writers. Twilight's a good hook in there. Classic. It was very funny. Way to inspire the average writer. You keep doing what your doing to make a difference in the lives of authors like yourself.

Wow, that was really hilarious! It made me picture all these writers in a classroom using their pencils and pens as miniature dancing batons... And it also makes me want to watch Mulan. Great idea, KnightTeen, way to lighten a writer's heart. (:

Funny story:
I was watching mulan last night singing the song all the way! I feel fate has brought me to the front page! This was such a creative idea and made me smile. I actually enjoyed and sang this to the right tune and hopefully (with your permission) am able to make a YouTube cover! I can easily put a link to your YouTube or YWS page! I really like it and would love to make it something for people everywhere to enjoy!

Btw LOVE YOUR AVATAR




KnightTeen says...


Go right ahead and make the YouTube cover! I have a YouTube and a YWS, if you would just send me the link once it's all said and done. :)

Wow this was a very unique idea. As soon as I saw the title I had a feeling it would something like this. And let me just say this was a lot better then I expected. It actually felt like I was actually listing to the song.

I think there was little writing issues at the end but other then that this was a nice read. Keep it up




KnightTeen says...


I literally just threw this together in like ten minutes, which was a bit of an adventure.

This was extremely entertaining. Great idea! I like the way you used the same formatting as the song (and let's be honest. I've been singing this song for days now.) I found myself trying to sing along with it. :)

I think you could go back over it and fix the typos/grammatical errors. They're not too bad. The rhythm and rhyming could also be improved. There were several parts, especially towards the end, that could be edited to rhyme and it would flow better.

Aside from that, it was a fun, lively read. Great job and happy writing!
