Stop! In the name of the (Gnome) LAW!

"I'll need to see two forms of ID from each and every one of you. Right now."

Stormy: "Who's asking?"

"My name is Classified."

"And I work for Gnomeland Security."

Stormy: "Classified? Like you could tell us, but then you'd have to kill us?"

"No, I had it legally changed to Classified."

Stormy: "Oh. That's not weird. At. All. Well, we don't have ID. None of us have pockets. Or hands for that matter."

"OK. I expected a little more cooperation from a celebrity such as yourself, but I can overlook one tiny infraction. Gentlegnomes, I'm here to protect and serve."

Stormy: "Celebrity? You've heard of me?"

#IWSG - Great opportunities you don't want to miss!

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

July 5 Optional Question: What is one valuable lesson you've learned since you started writing?

The awesome co-hosts for the July 5 posting of the IWSG will be Tamara Narayan, Pat Hatt, Patricia Lynne, Juneta Key, and Doreen McGettigan!


Only one valuable lesson? For writers?
Clear your browser history on a regular basis, but understand and accept that you're probably already on an FBI watch list of some kind. :)
