A little writing humor

Here’s a joke I thought up in the shower this morning (yeah, brace yourself):

Oh, I slay me. Seriously, I think this may be a symptom of someone who has been spending far too many hours with a manuscript draft (and in case you’re wondering, that would be me).

I’ve been putting a lot of words into the manuscripts, and not a lot (obviously) here. The bonus: unintentionally funny typos, such as:

If I’d been the sort of girl to crunch on Jason …

Crush. I meant crush, because there is not even a hint of a zombie in our book. Although Jen did suggest a Geek Girl’s Guide to Zombies, but I think we’ll save that for another day.
