Ain’t that the truth Assaph! A Manhattan would be my drink of choice, but the sentiment is all the same. Speaking of Manhattan, it’s 4pm on Friday. Someone is dropping the ball here!

 

I apologize in advance for this next one. I just… I mean… It’s so dumb, I know. But I enjoyed it.

 

 

I’m embarrassed. Well, since we’ve gone down this path, here’s another ridiculous one from Amy Metz.

 

All right, all right. Time to get serious.

 

@DavidBoles has been getting some love from me here on Nothing Any Good. Here’s a couple great writing tweets I featured (well, Twitter featured) from David.

 

 

 

 

Check out the full Moments segment from Twitter that I highlighted earlier this week!

 

I enjoyed this creative Instagram post from Michael Cunningham. I’ve been best friends with his brother since I was born, but you have some serious talent Mikey.

 

Congrats to the first U.S. author to win the Man Book Award, Paul Beatty!

 

 

 

I received a poignant reply on one of my posts.

So true @DuchessVic2!

 

Some wisdom from a Tweets of the Week staple Tamara Thorne.

 

Here’s a coffee mug that editors dream about at night.

We’ve had another great week of tweet and posts. Thank you everyone for sharing your wonderful thoughts on social media! (Well, except for those of you that love trolling, in which case, knock it off.)

Let’s start with an announcement from Cheryl Holloway about the 3rd Anniversary of her blog. Congrats Cheryl! That’s amazing. If you are interested, you can join her celebration on September 6th.

 

 

Keeping with the theme of candle pics, this tweet was a good reminder for me on why I write in the first place.

 

 

 

Yes, I would love for my book to be a smashing success, but it’s always good to remember why we write. If my words can inspire someone to do something they love or encourage someone at a low point in their life, this is what matters to me. If your writing is humorous or full of adventure, remember that you want to make people laugh and excite them. It would be great to sell books, but it’s also great to have readers that get the point of your work.

Anyway, if you’re looking to write your next book, here’s 100 questions to ask from @authorKEGarvey via @olivierwrites.

 

https://twitter.com/olivierwrites/status/770672974621999105

 

Some good questions in there to ask.

I loved this next tweet from @JMRobison.

 

 

I love this idea JM! I have had this same thought and I’ve toyed with the idea of how one might be able to achieve this with an ebook. In fact, the first story in Pieces Like Pottery has 10 songs tied to each of the 10 sections of that story. Only a few readers have identified this. I may run each segment on Nothing Any Good at some point with the songs included so you can listen to the song while reading it. If I hear reader interest in this, I’ll do it for sure.

Now a thought about love and empathy.

 

 

We all too often in life look at our loved ones for who they might be some day or what they could be if they just tried a little harder. This isn’t fair to them and it isn’t fair to ourselves. Don’t love people for what you want them to be. Love them for who they are. Full stop.

 

 

 

George Carlin was a great thinker. Most people know him primarily as a comedian they either loved or hated, but he was first and foremost a great thinker in my mind. I love this sentiment of teaching our children to question what they read. It’s the only way to be thoughtful human beings.

Those of you that have read Expect Dragons, or have been following my adapted 40 Tips for Writing Your Novel, will realize that I love people that intelligently and respectfully question. In Mr. Smith’s 40 Tips for College and Life, tips #2 and #3 are as follows:

2. Question authority.

3. Question those who question authority.

So, yeah, I agree Mr. Carlin, whole heartedly.

 

Finally, a thought that every writer can relate to.

 

 

So true @Nenuphar00!

Keep writing friends! Have a wonderful weekend.

Thank you for the great week of tweets and posts friends. Here are some of the best from our Author and Reader friends and community.

Let’s kick it off with @LoriRMixson, who is a successful actress, entrepreneur, mother, and, while throwing a serious illness on top of it all, has positivity and inspiration for days.

 

 

What a wonderful sentiment. Free yourself of expectations, others’ expectations and your own.

Along the same lines…

 

 

If you follow one new person this week, I would recommend @LoriRMixson

Since we’re all inspired now, let’s have a quick laugh.

 

As I informed Ms. Armstrong on Facebook, if you’re going to have philosophies in life, why not have an attainable one?!

 

Before we get to the next post, a short letter to Facebook:

Dear Facebook,

You’re embedding feature sucks. You cut off part of the posted pic every time with your silly formatting. Fix it please.

Love, Me.

 

Ok, thank you for indulging me. Moving on. If you can’t read this, it says, “There were children in your corn. They’re gone now.” Thanks for making it unreadable FB.

 

 

For the second straight week Tamara Thorne has graced these pages. There’s just something about Tamara’s sense of humor that tickles my weird-bone. (You heard me right- my weird bone. It’s just like you’re funny bone, but it doesn’t hurt like an MF-er when you bang it. You have one too, I promise.)

Anyway, I found this next video absolutely moving. As the son of a former high school basketball coach and a father of a newborn son, I love this clip.

 

 

What a great Dad!

 

 

 

I love quotes about being yourself. I believe strongly that we’re all called to be ourselves to the best of our ability, nothing more and nothing less. The last quote and this next one are quotes about being you that I enjoyed this week.

 

 

https://twitter.com/Matahari143/status/722609707970506752

 

 

The next post certainly doesn’t fall into my list of favorites. It’s more along the lines of how is this a thing?

 

 


Again, if you can’t read it, it reads: “You can live here rent free, but you have to give up Facebook. Could you do it?”

I find these posts so inane. I see at least one of these a week. Maybe I’m just not as attached to social media as some people? Would people really pass up a multi-million dollar home for Facebook? And even if they would, who cares? Wtf. I just don’t get these posts. The fact that it’s from something called That’s Really Funny LOL and it just isn’t funny at all adds to my annoyance. Let’s move on to something that actually is funny.

To end the week, let’s hand it over to someone who is both funny and very talented. Have a listen to “Millenial Song” by Micah Tyler.

 

Well done, Mr. Tyler!

 

Keep writing friends! Follow your passions and enjoy yourself. Have a wonderful weekend.

Let’s kick things off with one of my own tweets, not because I’m narcissistic, but because my two-year old is far funnier than I’ll ever be.

 

 

See. I told you she’s funnier than I am.

Now a tweet from someone wiser than I am.

 

 

I meant @belangelat being wiser than I am, but that Twain guy is all right too. Fun fact: In second grade I dressed up as Samuel Clemens (complete with cotton balls in my hair) and read a report I wrote on Mark Twain, but I digress.

 

Tamara Thorne is always funny. Sometimes disturbingly so, but I think that’s her goal. This one’s not disturbing, just a good chuckle.

 

@mattdusk and his wonderful tweets have made our Tweets of the Week once again. This is old hat for him now.

 

 

Mired in the current cesspool that is American politics, I can only hear the following smugly being said in a Donald Trump-like voice, “Sounds like something a loser would say.”

Well call me a loser then because I not only like this quote, but it closely reflects my life motto. Keep pressing on, my friends. No one wins every time. Everyone can be labeled a failure. Not everyone can be labeled a success, and that’s usually because they give up.

(Side note: Have you ever noticed that if you misspell friends you can easily spell fiends. Never noticed that.)

If you’re looking for a few laughs, this article will do the trick. If you’re looking for fun ways to torture hotel employees (or liven their day depending on how you look at it), well again, this article will do the trick.

 


 

Whew! I’m glad there’s a somewhat sane explanation for my insanity.

 

This one makes me laugh every time I see it. Thanks, Marie! I get the giggles on this one!

 

Keep writing! Have a wonderful weekend.
