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.)

A-to-Z Challenge: N is for Noodle


Today’s topic is Doodle.

Hey, I am slammed and that is the truth. March went out like a lamb and April came in like this guy:

Another teaching moment for the Fool: thou shalt not participate in the A-to-Z Challenge without months-in-advance preparation. Who suffers? You, my trickle of blog followers. You came for circumspection. You leave with circumvention. A doodle, of all things. And not a good one either.

The inspiration is obvious. The likeness, I won’t admit to. The fin gesture is ambiguous. (It’s a fin. Could mean anything!)

Without further adoodle, I present my N-Post. Let’s call it a mock memoir title, why not.

Doodle. Social media. Humor. Debate or Da Bait. Calling it a mock memoir by CV Grehan.

I’m off to enjoy your thoughtful and well-prepared A-to-Z posts.

The Fool abides.

Greetings friends.

Still haunted by a typo from the past?

Who hasn’t been their they’re there?

Spell-checkers are fallible, and proofreading is tedious.

Believe me, the Fool understands.

This is your lucky day, Blog Visitor, for I have a product to desperately sell you desperately need to …

Cultivate a chi-licious proofreading practice.

Due to restrictions imposed by the BBB, the FTC and the ABCDE* I can make no claim that my break-out CD will eradicate a recurring spelling bee nightmare.

A-to-Z Challenge: L is for — what is it for, again?

CV Grehan scrambling into the blog, shoes untied, hair uncombed, s’cuse me and so forth.

Another mock memoir cover. Best I can do, presently.

But I’m here and, hey, it’s autographed.

Be sure to check my upcoming M-post for a tool every writer needs.
I’m giddy just thinking about it.
