Not those, I want the good ones. The ones that make sense, build a story. With feelings and a plot and characters you want to climb inside. Words you can smell, sentences you can hear, paragraphs you can taste.
Workin’ on ’em. Story of my life. Summer is ending, and I’m in a panic. I haven’t written enough words! Too many words of suckage! And who keeps slipping these exclamation points into the blog? Pfft, lazy, lazy writing.
Sometimes the perfect words are few.
Nerd Child: “Mom, I saw an interesting movie the other night.”
Mrs F: “Mm hmm, what?”
Nerd Child: “This is Spinal Tap.”
My work is done.
