Friday Funnies

You know you're a writer when...Your mom says, "Now I'm ironing the placket," and you're standing beside her thinking, Placket. Good word.

You know you're a writer when...You are weaning yourself off adverbs the way others wean themselves off chocolate.

You know you're a writer when...You took time off to write a novel and found so many ways to avoid the actual writing that now you know how to reglaze a window; cook a perfect French cassoulet; change the car's oil, belts, hoses, tires, and bulb; and fix pilot lights.

(Today's Friday Funnies from Adair Lara's You Know You're a Writer When... and LOLCats)

Stay tuned for a new Mystery Agent contest over at Operation Awesome on July 1st!!! Head over there for details! :)

I wish I had a mom with great diction!

Lori M. Lee said...

Haha, love these :D

Stephanie McGee said...

I do that all the time with words. Then enjoy throwing them randomly at my friends just to be crazy.

Thanks for the chuckles. (I think that last LOL is my fave of the ones you posted today.)

Ha! So true. :)

I love the second LOL pic!

The first quote says it all!

You know you're a writer when you feel the need to get up in the middle of the night to complete the next scene, or read Michelle's blog.

I took time off to write my novel and got some major landscaping done:-P

Being a writer can sometimes be a real drag that I usually take the time off by catching up on my favorite shows. Less stressed - inspiration loves to smote me in that state.
Loved the cat pictures, by the way. Earned a few chuckles from me.
