  1. It’s not a Questionable, but what about sharing our favourite “how to write” books? I was given “Telling Lies for Fun and Profit” by Lawrence Block in the 1980’s and still remember some of his lessons. It’s a fun read, too – like having coffee with him, not sitting in a lecture hall.

    1. I’ve always liked Making a Good Script Great by Linda Seger.
      And somewhere I have Telling Lies for Fun and Profit. Haven’t read it for years, but I remember really liking it.

  2. You are allowed to have a life. Period.

    We are allowed to want to hear about it, read your email, share your meals…

    My mother had a halogenated* saying: “Want in one hand and poop** in the other. See which one fills up first.” So your life is totally independent of our wants. We’ll take whatever you feel like sharing, and like it. 🙂

    * Halogenated means combined with a halogen, in this case bromine, which makes this saying a bromide – a trite and unoriginal idea or remark, typically intended to soothe or placate. Strangely enough, my mother’s bromides seldom soothed or placated.
    ** Mother was always earthier than the word choice shown, though she might substitute “merde” for the Anglo-Saxon word.

    1. My mother wasn’t. She used to say “Cheese, pie, and crust.” Took me forever to figure out that was her workaround for “Jesus Christ.”
      There’s are reasons I’m weird. Put them all together they spell “MOTHER” . . .

  3. An old boss used to say, “If it’s not one thing, it’s your mother.” Never failed to crack me up.
