I am really good at writing great characters who chat wittily while wandering from place to place.

So rest easy, fellow unplottable writers! We're keeping the editors employed!

"I always think there's a plot!" I said. AND THEN this editor said, "If every writer knew how to construct a plot, then I wouldn't have a job."

If I had a dollar for every time I thought I'd written with a carefully constructed plot, but then an editor very kindly tells me that there is, in fact, no plot, I'd have one billion dollars.

Today for the billionth time in my writer life, an editor told me, "So...your story needs a plot"

They are, as long as they get a good long walk first thing in the morning. And there aren't any squirrels on the bird feeders outside the window.

That was just a good angle! This is the view from my kitchen window.

One of my favorite podcasts has a new episode about a book I love so much I consider it a textbook in humor writing, Phyllis Diller's Housekeeping Hints (pictured here with a pile of laundry I'm not folding).

As someone who was traumatized by The Day After when I was a kid, I probably needed that book.

It ends with the sister getting out of rehab and going to meetings "practically forever so she won't get back on drugs." So it's a happy ending. I wonder if there were some that weren't so happy.

Yeah, I just added a tweet to my thread about how I wasn't sharing to make fun of it, but more to think about how books have changed. As someone who makes books, I am not into mocking other people's hard work. It was interesting to see such a Very 90s Book.

I also want to add that I'm not sharing this to make fun of it, but to think about how this book would not look like this today. I know how hard picture book makers work to make their books. Except for the people who want to collaborate with me on books about dental hygiene.
