Damn it, Jim!
I swear my brain has turned to mush.
When did my mental hard drive lose all sense with it comes to punctuation? Those little dots, dripps, and slashes have WAAAAAY too much power in our lives.
I know, I know. At all times, I should have a grammar and punctuation manual in reach. It’s a bit obvious I’m not working when I have the manual open and am muttering about the placement of punctuation in my dialogue.
“Damn it, Jim! I’m a Writer! Not….” Leila sighed, admitting defeat. “Never mind.”
The brain has crapped out on me again.
p.s. I have a great group of women I write with who forgive my brain farts.
