One of the Southern Indiana Writers Group is She Who Writes Under The Name Of Eli Cobb. I love her work, but I can’t eat my dinner when she’s at meeting, because I’m too busy taking down all the funny things she says.

For instance, my “grilled zucchini” had maybe been walked past a lightbulb. A dim lightbulb. But I even like zucchini cold and nearly raw, so I et it. “Eli” reported what one of her friends and/or relations would have said:

I got three words for you:

Take this off my bill.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Can I be a nit-picky, technicalist, 24 Karat, pain in the Grunion?
    That is 5 words. Not 3.
    Thank you for your time and attention.
    Take care, and: Carry on!

        My Gaaaaawwwwddddd!!!!!
        These people make my writing read like something out of that guy there, he used to Shake his Speare!
        Or Mark Twain!
        I gather most of them do not have English as a first, or even 2nd language!

        Holly laboured over the short but torturous letter from the lowlands. It was a request for books The letter made little sense, read like spam, and worse, for any book, the journey would be a long one. It only took her a minute to decide what to do. She picked up the phone and called her pet pest. “OH, Peeete…” Ah, she and her assistant Marion would have a nice 2 week vacation! She congratulated herself on being able to make these high executive decisions, and called in her servant. “Tea for 2, and 2 scones, please.” Then she called Marion to tell her the good news. Laughing she said: “It’s good to be the king.”
        The end.

        I’ll let you write their letter! Is Steffie good as a book?
