  1. Kill with impact? Drop them from a really high place.
    Been reading Cherie's series.
    Hope you're having a good weekend, Jeff!

    2. I expected more creativity from you two... My thought was to engage warp drive while the inertia dampeners were disengaged. ;-)

  2. The Common Manuscript mistakes, they are not just common on manuscripts. I keep seeing them everyday and they kill me. Those around me hate that about me, mostly when we're watching TV. I always start like "Yeah, right, as if...." Result. I get a storm of popcorn or murderous looks.

    1. I do hope there's butter with the popcorn. I shudder to think how many common manuscript mistakes I make. I know for a fact I'm guilty of the very first one she mentioned.

    2. Who doesn't? I mean, I don't think there's even one writer who writes only asserted, accurate, brilliant sentences since the very first draft. That would get another "Yeah right, as if..." from me, hahahaha.
