Good morning and Happy Monday! It is going to be a great day today!
Why am I so chipper this morning? I haven't a clue.
My house is a mess. There are dishes piled in the sink.
And let's not even talk about how bad-ly I need to vacuum!
And did I mention I just read my NaNoWriMo pep talk from Erin Morgenstern
Who is sitting on a beautiful beach somewhere, with a drink in her hand
that has one of those cute paper umbrellas in it
and she's waving at me, swimming 50 yards out, in shark infested waters
and I swim like a frog!
Well maybe she didn't say exactly that, but that's what I read!
But what she did say was, "I love adverbs"
I read it! I swear I did! And I thank her for saying it.
But anyway, there's a fresh pot of coffee on!
Come in, sit down, and visit for awhile.
Oh and don't forget to have a number! (That will be explained shortly)
I read a blog a few days, weeks ago. (When I write I lose all track of time)
Anyway, I am also bad with names.
People shouldn't have names! They should have numbers!
My son will challenge and test me
till I am ready to scream and he does it just so he can laugh at me!
"Mom, whose the lead singer of Metallica?" 13 (That's my answer and I'm sticking to it!)
"And whose the guitarist?" 14. "Okay and who did he used to play for?" Wait, I got this one!
Okay so I do remember someone, but if your name isn't
Ozzy, Rob Thomas, or Stephen King,
You better have a number!
Now that I have complete-ly confused you, I should get back to what I was trying to say.
I read this blog post by somebody and she said you shouldn't use adverbs and she mentioned Stephen King in the post and something about he doesn't use them and I'm thinking...
So since I am a huge fan and have a collection of his books right over there,
I pick up one and read a paragraph,
Well there's an adverb, pick up another book, yep there is another.
Why are adverbs so hated?
I just don't get it.
Here's an example,
"She gives him a kiss on the forehead as he lays dying in her arms"
Okay that works, but I prefer,
"She kisses him soft-ly on his forehead, tender-ly holding him in her arms,
as he closes his eyes, slow-ly taking his last breath."
Okay it's the little things that get me chipper.
She loves adverbs!
Have a Happi-ly Chipper Monday everyone!
Oh and I'm 5, it's nice to meet you. :-)
