A-to-Z Challenge: S is for Sock

April, you have (nearly) defeated me. It has come to this.

I apologize to Leonard Nimoy.

I apologize to hosiery.

I apologize to those of you careless enough to scroll further.

Turn back, I’m begging.

A-to-Z Challenge: Q is for Quiz

Been dull around here the last couple days. Not much to read, not much to view. Let’s liven it up with a quiz.

Relax.

It’s easy.

Besides, I don’t judge. Five stars, one star, who cares? (I know you jilted that one-star reviewer and clearly they deserved it!)

Now, for the ungraded quiz.

The illustration below depicts six different genres of fiction. Can you guess which is which? (Hint: they’re kinda obvious.)

  1. _________
  2. _________
  3. _________
  4. _________
  5. _________
  6. _________

Writing humor. Genre quiz. A photoshop mashup that celebrates some favorite genre tropes. Genre Love! See the web post for component parts.

A-to-Z Challenge: P is for Wild ImPagination

Page numbers. A simple but necessary prop for every masterpiece of literature.

And the stuff the rest of us write.

Sloppy pagination, or the complete lack of, will sorely peeve your critique partners, or requesting agents, or harried editors.

As to that, I offer another minimal mock memoir title.

Writing, editing, humor. Pagination. Agents. A mock memoir title by CV Grehan. I wrote on the edge of a stack of paper. Took a picture on my cell phone and called it good.

A-to-Z Challenge: O is for TypO

CV Grehan gettin’ minimal here.

I’m present, with pencils, just like high school–back when school buses were powered by oxen.

(Time permitting, here’s where I’d insert a team of oxen with a photoshopped bus number on their flanks, and a stop sign that flips out. What a chuckle we’d all have.)

Minimal.

Mock memoir title.Writing, editing humor. Text and dog art by CV Grehan. Blank yellow pencils by canstock photographer Leaf, csp0009019.
