Snarky

blog post
Another thought I’ve had for repurposing this blog.
How about Snarky.
If I were going to do snarky in this blog, I might do something like what you see below. My comments will be in italic.


EXT. DAYTIME – ON ROOF OF DOG HOUSE
Snoopy, a Charles Schultz character, typing. Get real! Does anyone really believe a Beagle can type? But I’ve heard them Yipe!

SNOOPY

(Typing)

Gentlemen, I have just completed my new novel.

An accomplished author like Snoopy should know that all publishers are not gentlemen – even in the definition of the word. And in today’s world even the greeting could be… Well make your own assumptions.

CUT TO: NEXT PANEL

SNOOPY

(TYPING?)

It’s so good, I am not even going to send it to you.

CUT TO: NEXT PANEL

Snoopy looking down as if reading what he has typed.

Why don’t you just come and get it?

How many of us would like to send that note to a publisher?

This will probably be my last post in screenplay format. It takes far longer to do the format than to tell what the cartoon was all about.

However, I could scan a strip like this one from The Columbian and make my snarky remarks below the image.


Continuation of quotes from what I’ve written might also be an ending section to future blogs.

For example, “Jeez Goor! If I’d known you were going to really write a book, I wouldn’t have made up so much stuff. Anyways, send me a copy. CP: ((Calvin Parker in Echoes of Nam: Absence from war is not the same a s peace of the soul.))

Smiles, snarks, and comments go here.
