Haha, love these, especially to give it a haircut. There's nothing like adding layers, trimming excess, bringing in colorful characters and conditioning the plot. Fun post, Happy Friday to you :)

Stephen Tremp said...

I like takingit for a walk. Get some fresh air, sunshine, and exercize. Does a MS good.

Summer Ross said...

LOL- while I was reading this I was picturing a poor defenseless piece of paper skirting the edges of a shower- LOL

Lydia K said...

(*sniff, sniff*)
Pass the deodorant.

LOL!

Carol Kilgore said...

Joanne - All necessary, too.

Stephen - And the writer, too!

Summer - HaHa! We definitely have to take charge of the writing - leave it no defenses :)

LR said...

Colorful clothes is my favorite. :)

J.L. Campbell said...

Yup, after all that, my WiP will sparkle! :D

Clarissa Draper said...

Now, I just need to apply it to myself.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

LOL! Excellent, Carol. My writing will be fresh, even if the writer isn't.

VR Barkowski said...

That's it! I'm taking my WIP to a day spa this weekend. No reason we shouldn't both benefit. :)

Oh how I've missed your top ten these past weeks!

Julie said...

Cute post! I wasn't expecting this list, made me smile. Especially loved make it use mouthwash, ha.

Hannah Kincade said...

I beg to differ! I wrote my highest word count unshowered. Can you smell that? That's the smell of productivity.

Talei said...

Also, we must moisturise - very important to keep it supple and feeling good. ;-)

Lovely post my dear! Happy Friday, and have a lovely weekend! x

Carol Kilgore said...

Julie - You never know what you'll find Under the Tiki Hut :)

Hannah - You rock, Hannah!

Talei - Most definitely. Pour on the moisturizer.

Talli Roland said...

Hehe! These made me laugh. I love 'take it for a walk'! :) Have a great weekend, Carol.

Carol Kilgore said...

Talli - Laughter is wonderful!

Holly Ruggiero said...

So, I misread the first line as “Ten ways to keep yourself fresh”. I’m glad I reread it before I read #1 - ;)

Carol Kilgore said...

Holly - LOL...me, too. I went back and looked to make sure I typed it the way I meant it.

Miss Good on Paper said...

Cute! I'm going to buy my writing a cocktail. =)

Arlee Bird said...

Never thought of it quite like that. But it seems like I might mess up my computer if I take it in the shower with me.
