Short Snarky Stories

This can’t be right, to have so much goodness going on in ones life, and then post something like this. Hopefully, healthy wealthy readers will cut me a little slack as I share a little Friday, get ready for the weekend, humor.

Quotes. I love them, many of them, even those I like to poke fun at... such as these two, which I’ve drawn over in short snarky storytelling fashion.

“Thinkers are great, but doers change the world.”

Short Story.

There were two men, Peter and Paul. Peter, the thinker, and Paul the doer.

Peter inspired the planning and execution of building monumental buildings and systems.

Paul, on the other hand, along with many others did lay the bricks that built the building, and worked off Peter's and his nemesis' inspiration to put systems into motion.

So, who changed the world? Both the Peters' and Pauls'.

Perhaps the quote would read better phrased as, “thinking is great, and even greater when those thoughts “LEAD TO” changing the world…” since who has ever known a doer changing anything, much less the world, without thinking!?!

Another short story to the quote; “It’s better to be silent and thought a fool, than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.”

A teacher called on one of his students to answer a question. “What’s the law of supply and demand,” asked the teacher.

The student kept his lips sealed, ziplocked shut and just stared at the teacher.

-End of parable-

Perhaps an addendum could go on the end of the latter quote; “What’s the difference?”

All right, so I won’t leave this post up all weekend, but Happy Friday! I just received the gift of a lifetime. Look forward to enjoying some of the details…

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
