Do Take That Tone With Me...

Tone and voice are two important traits of writing that can sometime be illusive. One of the best ways I've found to give my T and V a shot in the arm is turning to the wit of others.

Ready for giggles and inspiration?

Hop over to Miss Cellania website. It is an ongoing party fraught with delicious posts sharing quotes, insults, and a plethora of other humorous posts that sing with voice and tone. 

Dive in for some entertaining research to find yummy personality shadings and tidbits to add to those NaNo characters, being born even as we speak, by enjoying the quick wit of some interesting folk.

Here’s a sneak peek from the WHEN INSULTS HAD CLASS post.

I never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure. – Clarence Darrow

I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.Mark Twain

I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend…if you have one.George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill

Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second…if there is oneWinston Churchill, in response

He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends. - Oscar Wilde

Hop over to Miss Cellania and search quotes and insults. Enjoy.

  9. Thank you to my friend Joann for introducing me to Miss Cellania. I'm glad everyone is enjoying.

  10. Some great lines from back in the times when people knew how to be sly, witty, and intelligent. Now a lot of folks choose to go for the jugular with profanity and outright meanness.
