This is for all you NaNoWriMo writers out there who are trying to finish your 50,000 word novels in a month.
Study the sign in the picture above. It reads: Your butts are a problem.
It’s referring to the litter of half-smoked cigarettes. I doubt if all of you imaginative folks followed that theme. I didn’t.
Instead, I suspect you were thinking about broad pantloads of flesh saddling those skinny bicycle seats.
The old adage: “It’s much easier to suggest a solution when you know nothing about the problem” (Anonymous) is true.
Our manuscripts and short stories keep throwing problems at the hero. Hopefully both writer and reader perceive the same thing as a problem.
We all strive to become the caliber of writers who can purposely distract and divert the reader rather than confuse him.
That’s why we keep working at it.
