And up walks another writer, but instead of a cocktail in his hand it's a cappuccino, and in the other a copy of something pretension enough to worthy deep discussion. Maybe Tolstoy. Maybe The New Yorker. He's got a man bun and an ironic but neatly trimmed beard. A real hipster. The sort who boasts about his Great American Novel but is still searching for that bit of inspiration to get it started.
Then he invites himself to sit at your table, looks you up and down, and says...
10. "I like the curves of your story arc, baby."
9. "This is one conjugation guaranteed to make you comma."
8. “You’re my climax.”
7. "If you show, I won't tell."
6. "Ooh! I haven't seen a 'plot' that big since War and Peace."
5. "I've got some Great Expectations for you, with an Oliver Twist!"
4. "I'm plotting a way into your heart."
3. "Wanna see where I put my apostrophe?"
2. "How about we start with some foreshadowing?"
1. "Hey, girl, wanna see what's between my covers?"
and a bonus!
"Baby, if you were words on a page, you’d be fiiine print."
