Do you know someone who’s serious all the time?
You know the type you tell a joke or a funny story then they feel compelled to break it down, analyze it and explain the rationale?
Yeah, those people.
Author E. B. White once said, “Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but the thing dies in the process and the innards are discouraging to any but the pure scientific mind.”
Camp NaNoWriMo, AtoZ Challenge, #52weeks52stories, countless WIPs and word prompts all over the place! April is a huge writing month and thousands upon thousands of writers are writing… something!

Wonderful post! Write… and remember to live! 😉
But to be a happy writer, you must have a balanced life. What is the point of life if you’re so busy writing about fictional lives that you aren’t present in your own?
That need to be present in my real life is why I schedule my writing time.
Some people manage to fit short bursts of writing into their daily schedule, writing at work while on break or at lunch. Others must schedule a dedicated block of time for writing, by either rising two hours before they must depart for work or by skipping TV in the evening.

Writing has been painful this month. And, when I say painful, I mean that writing has been like pulling teeth. If the teeth were attached to my eyeballs, and my eyeballs were on fire, and I was being dipped slowly into piranha infested lava.
Despite the leaps and bounds made in today’s technological age, the dumbs are hitting people harder than ever. Information is readily available. Forget the name of your hellion’s teacher? Look it up on the school website. Want to learn how to cook the perfect scrambles eggs? Watch a Gordon Ramsey…

Come out of the closet! LOL! 😉
You’re watching your friend closely as surprise flirts across their features, the expression sinking into their eyes and the lines around their mouth.
‘You’re writing a book? Far out, I had no idea you were even a writer!’
