Friday Wisdom – Writing

This morning it was 29F (-2C) degrees outside and likely will only get as high as 60F (15C) this afternoon so I’m officially switching to indoor activities. That means more writing, quilting and woodwork in my small shop which is heated. I’m doing an on-line poetry class and yesterday was our month church writer’s group so here’s everything I know about writing:

I’m having to avoid using apostrophes in my writing – they are so possessive.

I always get cold when writing at my computer, so many drafts.

I was having trouble writing an ending to my blog post about lighting. Then it struck me.

Which dinosaur was the best writer? Thesaurus …

I told an English teacher that I wanted to write fiction. He suggested I study journalism.

I wanted to be a fantasy writer, so I got a job writing campaign speeches.

Did you hear about the writer who was arrested? They gave him a long sentence.

I went to the writer’s block support group yesterday. It made me really …

Our city just opened a apartment building just for writers. They call it the writer’s block.

I’m not looking forward to spring – I always get a bad case of allegories.

What blood type to copy editors have? Type-O

I have a great idea for writing a book about procrastination. I’ll start writing it tomorrow.

I spilled glue all over my new manuscript – that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

I have a writer friend who’s selling a lot – so far he’s sold his car, his house, some clothes …

I have bike in my writing office, yup a stationary bike.

    Type-O! At least one on each of your Friday lists is good for an LOL. The first one about writer’s block is a close second.

  8. “Winter is coming. . . ” (even to the desert. :D) Here is my little corner of the world, it has been beautifully crisp and cool. My kind of weather. πŸ˜€ I would love to see what you are quilting when you have things a bit further along. I also love sewing and needlework.

    The thoughts on writing are so clever (as always) and they always bring a smile. Have a wonderful weekend. πŸ™‚

    I liked the “glue all over my new manuscript” joke very much but I still think that the Thesaurus gag is my favourite.
