  4. What flavor do you suppose clouds are?"

    Later, during a life and death situation:
    "I mean, the answer is obviously vanilla..."
     
  5. When collected at sunset, they range from peach and orange to strawberry, bubble gum and watermelon.
     
  6. Thanks to the Order of the Stick for providing inspiration for that joke. :D

    It's funny, I feel like something has shifted about the way I look at my writing. I take my work a lot less seriously now, and I'm finding myself having more fun with my characters and worlds. I allow myself to get away with a little self-indulgence now. Maybe that's the key--I was so focused on writing a particular type of story that I lost sight of what I actually enjoy. Hmm. Whatever caused my change in perspective, I'm grateful for it. It's definitely helped my productivity!

    And it will likely increase your audience's enjoyment of the story as well. I firmly believe that when an author likes writing a scene then that will rub off on the reader.

    I forget who said it, but there's a writer's quote that said something along the lines of "No tears in the author, no tears in the reader. No passion in the author, no passion in the reader". So when you write you're transmitting more than dialogue and action.

    Man, I really blew it. My birthday was last month--I should have asked for a covfefe.

    Guys, you're going to make me spit my water in the middle of the break room. That's a covfefe I'd never live down.

    On a non-cofveve level, this little video is just too good. What a great premise.

  16. I'm predicting that 'covfefe' is going to end up in dictionaries one day as an actual word with an actual definition. I predict it.

    covfefe - What happens to a word when auto-correct doesn't kick in when you expect it to.

    The day the first covfefe comment was posted to this thread, I did a search for the word on Amazon and found 12 pages of products, everything from quickly-made MP3 files to mugs, t-shirts, bumper stickers....I think it'll only end up a footnote in history, but who knows? It might gain more traction unexpectedly.
