Stop by for a snippet of past works or current projects! If you see it below I'm either trying to rework it or it's a new piece under construction. So, take a read and leave a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts. You know, for those 'writer's block' moments.
Title: Quite Frankly
Gotdammit! An expression used when one wants to emphasize a point. Makes it sparkle.
And the point?
You’re a muthafucka…
Your build up was weak, Chantelle.
Twenty-four hours, Frank!
Yes, there are twenty-four hours in a day. Again, your point?
You almost hit twenty-four hours.
A wonderful conjunction, but something should follow. See what I did there?
