Random Writing Quote:

“You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.”

--Isaac Asimov

July 2013 Will Write For Food

Blue man:  Okay men, the map shows that the river narrows ahead.  So let’s assume straight line formation like we practiced. Private, you take the lead.

Red man:  Captain, permission to speak freely, sir?

Blue man:  Go ahead, sergeant.

Red man:  I’m still not convinced this is going to work, sir.

Blue man:  I don’t remember asking you to be convinced.

Red man:  I’m just saying.  I’m not sure if this is the best idea on how to get behind enemy lines, sir.

Blue man:  Trust me, Sergeant.   Command says this will work.  Surprise is in our favor.

Red man:  I can understand the concept, sir.  But why do our rifles have to be colored too, and shoot ammo that explodes in to little puffs of color?

Blue man:  For effect, sergeant.

Red man:  All I got to say is the hallucinogens they sent with those so called working girls better take effect by the time we get there.  And what if their men don’t take them?

Yellow man:  Are you kidding?  Did you see the women that Command sent?  I would eat anything they served me.

Red man: Okay, Private Yellow, thank you for your brilliant observation.

Yellow man:  Oh, ha ha, I don’t know why I had to be the one to wear yellow.

Red man:  Because I said to.  Be happy I didn’t make you wear the pink.

Blue man:  Okay, you two, knock it off.  We’ll be fine.  Once we get past the enemy camp, we’ll switch to our normal gear and weapons, and we’ll continue on foot as planned.

Yellow man:  “We were supposed to bring our normal gear?”
