Aren’t I Clever…

Not really.

Have you ever noticed when you try to be clever, people around you back away slowly so the anti-cleverness will not affect them?

I working on reducing my ‘clever’ bits in my writing.  I’ve come to the conclusion being clever is a by-product of telling a good story-not being a smartypants.

Can one get over being a smartypants?
