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.

A-to-Z Challenge: K is for … ?

oKay, Here’s a post of anything.

This Fool was absent for a few days. Life happened. I apologize for the lull.

I had not yet prepared for K, but I do have material from the previous days which I was unable to post.

Today’s offering is a mock memoir title.

I have a lot of catching up to do … commencing.

Writing humor, a mock memoir title. Text and freehand drawing (how about that hanger!) by CV Grehan.

A-to-Z Challenge: C is for Conference Feng Shui

Welcome to my submission for Day 3 of the A-to-Z Blog Challenge. Today’s offering is one of my Photoshop Procrastination Mashups.

A Mock Workshop.

Please don’t for a minute believe this is real, and careen from ballroom to ballroom at your next conference in search of this (much needed) master class.

The idea was inspired by the handful of writer’s conferences I’ve staggered through over the years. To fledglings, these events can feel intimidating. Not to mention, you spent cold hard cash. Sacrifices were made. You drank budget beer. Postponed a dozen haircuts. You told the little ones at home that Mickey went belly up. There’s a lot riding on a single weekend!

Writers Conference Mock Workshop. Feng Shui. Create Good Luck. Writing humor. Image photoshopped by CV Grehan. Notice The Fool makes a cameo? And Trolls? The image has a lot going on. You’ll find a breakdown of its parts on the site.

I threw the mashup together in a hurry. Feeling a little sheepish now. What am I worried about? 1.3 billion websites, who’s gonna see this?

Tomorrow I’m doing double duty. A-to-Z and the Insecure Writer’s Support Group blog hop.

A-to-Z Challenge: A is for Air Interrobang ?!

The Fool

Welcome to the first day of the A-to-Z Blog Challenge.

April Fool’s Day.

My day.

Today I offer a mock book cover inspired by the punctuation mark eschewed by my QWERTY keyboard:

The Interrobang

Writing humor. Mock cozy mystery cover. An Air Interrobang Mystery. I would read this! (No, I wouldn’t.)
An Air Interrobang Mystery

Like peanut butter and chocolate, the ! and the ? make a delicious team in the in the right circumstances. (In the case of peanut butter and chocolate, the circumstances are always right.)

But today, the spotlight shines on the air interrobang. The mock book cover I created gives a nod to the cozy mystery genre. Not to mention, my amusement whenever air quotes are deployed during conversation. The ol’ scare quotes. Quibble marks. Smart-alecky bunny ears.

Judgment, be gone, I say. Give me rhetorical flabbergastery. The new hook-n-dot-n-slash-n-dot. Who’s the first to raise their hand?!

I once used the term ‘air interrobang’ to a friend, and they said, “What airline is that?” Because this is the first day of the A-to-Z Challenge, I created an additional procrastination to accompany that anecdote. You can find it on my fledgling Pinterest page. Ah heck, I’ll include the image below and save you a step.

So concludes my A-Day. I’m ashamed to admit how long it took to create this post. Not every A-to-Z will be a mock book cover but a few more are on the menu.

Fly the frightening skies. Would you travel Air Interrobang? (I think I might have.) The image is a mashup, meaning I photoshopped components, added a thought bubble, a storm scene, a screw. Go to the site for specifics.

The Fool is heading out to check on yours!
