You Know You’re a Writer When…


…planning for a trip you’re more worried about whether or not the manuscript you’re editing will pass through security than you are about what clothes to pack.

Why am I worried about my manuscript? Because it’s held together with brass fasteners. I bought the 2 in. kind but continue to print my manuscripts double-sided, cutting the thickness in half, and thus the pointy brass prongs stick out past the paper, looking hazardous. Will the TSA consider them lethal weapons?

Too dangerous to fly?
