I’m fucking grateful that the snow is up to my dog’s haunches, because it’s a pandemic out there and I shouldn’t be leaving the house anyway.
I’m fucking grateful that I had some nice time off from querying my manuscript only to feel so bad about not querying that I started querying again.
I’m fucking glad I’m Jewish so I can live on a steady diet of competing feelings of guilt. Really, it’s lovely, such a well of motivation. Yes that comma should be a fucking em dash.
I’m fucking grateful that [author redacted] hasn’t written the third book in the series I just started. I really need to stop reading schlock fiction anyway.
I’m fucking grateful some asshole senator from Texas went to Cancun rather than showing some goddamn leadership, because I anger keeps you warm. Although maybe not in Texas.
I am legitimately grateful for those of you who keep reading and urge me to post.
What are you grateful for?
I’m grateful for you. (And the vaccine.)
I would have gone for the comma, but then I’m the last of the semicolon fangirls so take that as you will.
I’m grateful for my job, which is difficult and stressful enough that I feel free in my downtime to do whatever the hell I want. Very liberating.
I’m fucking grateful for semicolons.
• internet streaming of television shows I never watched before because they originally aired at 10pm when I was already headed for bed or asleep
• …I am trying to think of something else. Good neighbors. Chocolate. Cheese. (Stop, wait, reverse that—cheese first.)
I agree with cheese first!!
See, I thought guilt was a Catholic thing.
It’s something we have in common.
I am fucking grateful for a complete ignorance of all proper grammatical rules and structure. I therefore write guiltlessly every day.
It’s the only way to write! Copyeditors need to keep their dogs fed.
Yes, true! We have six, occasionally seven cats to keep in litter and munchies. Grammar is a mouse none of us can be bothered to chase too hard.
I have thought that a good knowledge of the “rules” of grammar is a deterrent to creative writers, not a help.
I totally agree that writers shouldn’t be guilty about their knowledge/lack of knowledge of grammar. But as a professional editor and creative writer, I don’t think knowing the rules of grammar is a deterrent. Worrying about the rules of grammar is the deterrent.
I have the best of both worlds… I neither know, nor give a shit. Yet somehow, I manage to write affectively.
