Read- Masters of the Nonsenseverse: A Get Fuzzy Collection by Darby Conley
Another fantastic collection. It’s clear that Darb has a thick, rich vocabulary and isn’t afraid to use it. Bravo. There are some jokes that reference the 2012 presidential election (Bucky is a Republican, Rob and Satchel are liberal Democrats). This collection had several strips that appealed to me as a writer. For a good laugh, I highly recommend this book.

Pick out 10-15 books from your shelf, from your local library, or from a local bookstore. They can be any genre, any language, and any length. In each book, flip to a random page and pick the 1st word (articles such as “the”, “and”, “an”, “or”, etc. don’t count as the 1st word). Use all these 1st words to try to create an actual sentence. If the books are in different languages, feel free to translate them to all one language or leave them as they are! also, you can add in some articles, such as “the”, “and”, “an”, “or”, etc., if you want to make the sentence flow better.
Remember, Alexander, to tell how River slowly rubbed the candle lump into a long key.
Would you please take a moment to share the debut author image? It would mean a great deal not only to me, but to any debut author who is interviewed as a result. Thanks so much!
