Adult Truth #15

“I think the freezer deserves a light as well.”Why not? Illumination certainly would make finding that long forgotten frozen bagged hunk of round steak you placed in there eight months ago an easier task. This is one of those questions that nobody has taken the time to answer.How does this truth relate to writing? Again, you'll have to stretch your imagination a bit, and use your creativity. When I read this I thought of…See More

My thanks to David Schlosser and Bob Dunbar who responded with an example each.
