Writing As Explained By New Girl

Howdy!

It’s time for another “Writing As Explained As” post since I continually promise to do these and then disappear from the face of the earth and don’t…heeeere we go!

Also I’ve been re-watching New Girl. It’s one of my favorite shows and it’s totally applicable to writing, as I have now discovered. Also, I could basically do this with Nick Miller gifs. πŸ˜‰

Also, so for whatever reason the first two gifs didn’t copy in the same size as all the other ones, and now I hope you feel as awkward as I do about that.

  2. I love your writing as explained by posts, Claire!!!!

    Though *coughs* that one about your readers not trusting you for killing off their favorite character? I’m SURE you never would do that to your poor readers or beloved characters. πŸ˜‰

  3. Sigh. New Girl. I haven’t seen the last season yet for when I’m in a crisis and need something to cheer me up. Also, could totally relate to all, but especially the “Basically reading over a first draft…” GIF Fun post!
