Just have to share this... found it on FB.
These are hilarious. The only one I would not use is the one about stereotypes, and only because the word toxic is right now in the throws of having been grabbed up by the gestalt zeitgeist and semantic shift is sure to be highly volatile for the next few months.
You have lost me
edit: Uhm I think I decoded that. Not so funny
But glad you like it.. I am still laughing. I may be guilty of a few of the signs myself
edit: and I think I need to use fewer emoticons
There needs to be a blank one. Nothing Happens.
Oh yeah. How can that have been overlooked?
Boom! There'ya go.
Yep, that's the one. Actually it's a running joke in our face-to-face writers' group. One of the members (and we're all good friends outside of the meetings as well, so we joke around a lot) read out a very long and lively chapter from a book he's working on, and it was full of promise, mystery, foreboding, foreshadowing ...and at the end of it, the character just packed up and went home, unscathed. And we said ...great writing, but 'nothing actually happened.'
He's never let us forget it!
Those are far too common unfortunately :/
I think there should be a 'misleading' sign. For those books that promise one thing, and deliver something else entirely. (Bet Me cough cough).
