Thwack!

September 06, 2008  Author: Anthony Pacheco Category: The Craft, The Wife Unit   1 Comment

Apparently, I don’t need a proofreader now. Seems The Wife Unit takes great umbrage at grammatical errors. Here’s how I know:

Hack Writer: The Big Green Writing Chair
Wife Unit: The Couch, reading my manuscript

Suddenly The Wife Unit bolts from the couch, rolls up chapters one and two and smacks me with it.

“It is”

(Thwack!)

“Latter”

(Thwack!)

“Not”

(Thwack!)

“Later”

(Thwack!)

“As in”

(Thwack!)

“The former or the latter!

(Thwack! Thwack Thwack!)

True story.
