Guess what I just did–in the Word document I was editing, I changed all “Stan” to “Gary,” but forgot to tell it “whole words only” or put a space at the end, so I made words like “underGarydable” and “diGaryt” all through my silly new teenybopper book. Whee!
I especially liked “Garyding on the curb,” “she won’t garyd for it,” “I don’t underGaryd that man,” and the ever-popular Garyford University! Ivy League!
Anyhow. Didn’t realize I had not updated the journal for eight days or however long. We’ve been so exhausted around here for a couple of weeks that I figure we’ve been fighting off that flu. But I did have a cool inspiration for a silly YA novel, so I’m working on that. I figure, what the hell?
“I can’t understand why a person will take a year to write a novel when he can easily buy one for a few dollars.”-—Fred Allen (radio star from the 1940s/50s)
