laughing at your own joke

“An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald


A few writing pet peeves of mine:

1. too many exclamation points

2. saying “i didn’t edit or rewrite any of this, it just flowed out of me all at once!”

3. publishing anything that resulted from #2
