Dad: So, what do you do now?
Me: Wait for feedback, I think. That’s all I can do right now.
Dad: What do you do if the feedback is good? How do you send it to publishers?
Me: I don’t know. I think I send it to agents first, right?
Dad: I don’t know. Do they need a hard or a soft copy?
Me: I don’t-
Dad: And do you have a copyright on it? What if you send it to some sleazy publisher and they steal it?
Me: That’s a good-
Dad: How do you protect it?
Me (sighing): I don’t know.
Dad: You should find out.
Me: Yeah, I’ll find out.
So, apparently I still have A LOT OF WORK TO DO. Did John Mayer ever write a song about fathers and daughters? Maybe he did and he didn’t get a copyright for it and someone stole it. Should’ve listened to your old man, Mayer.
