Writing Lesson, by Thing Two

August 28, 2008  Author: Anthony Pacheco Category: The Craft   0 Comments

“ThingTwo, can you please get the paper for me?”
“No thank you.”

Words expended: 12
Result: Failure.

Next Day:

“ThingTwo, get the paper please.”
“Okay.”

Words expended: 6
Result: Success!

Less is more. This advice was brought to you by Thing Two, who when I came down stairs this morning, was running around wearing nothing but his Transformer socks and eating a cheese stick. He’s five.
