Cliches

This video teaches us writers to be constantly aware of cliches. They can happen to the best of us. Please watch, if only to catch the su-WEET keyboard solo by J.J. Abrams. (Seriously.)

I absolutely couldn’t wait, (which consequentially might be why I didn’t do so hot, but that’s fodder for another post.) So here…

We’ll on the spur of the moment, my hubby and I decided to drive to Aspen. (Monday is his day off.) So I won’t be around for the next little while. I’ll let you know if I see any glamorous movie stars! 🙂

I am afraid to say there will be no Photoshop Friday today. Why, you may ask? Well, I’ve been busily working away on what I hope to be the final editing round of Searcher. And guess what?
