    It DOES sound like a football coach. But at least there are no indecipherable diagrams full of little circles and x’s accompanying these statements.
    Then I WOULD cut someone.
    No, no I wouldn’t.

    Ah, but you are starting to “get your name out there” by blogging … oh, no, wait … your blog doesn’t reveal your name. 🙂

      Well, I did say these were true statements. I do have to get my name out there…I just hate hearing it over and over again, particularly from people who are not writers themselves.
