Haha, love these, especially to give it a haircut. There's nothing like adding layers, trimming excess, bringing in colorful characters and conditioning the plot. Fun post, Happy Friday to you :)

I like takingit for a walk. Get some fresh air, sunshine, and exercize. Does a MS good.
Summer Ross said…
LOL- while I was reading this I was picturing a poor defenseless piece of paper skirting the edges of a shower- LOL

(*sniff, sniff*)
Pass the deodorant.

Summer - HaHa! We definitely have to take charge of the writing - leave it no defenses :)

Yup, after all that, my WiP will sparkle! :D

Now, I just need to apply it to myself.
LOL! Excellent, Carol. My writing will be fresh, even if the writer isn't.
VR Barkowski said…
That's it! I'm taking my WIP to a day spa this weekend. No reason we shouldn't both benefit. :)

Oh how I've missed your top ten these past weeks!

Cute post! I wasn't expecting this list, made me smile. Especially loved make it use mouthwash, ha.
Hannah Kincade said…
I beg to differ! I wrote my highest word count unshowered. Can you smell that? That's the smell of productivity.
Talei said…
Also, we must moisturise - very important to keep it supple and feeling good. ;-)

Lovely post my dear! Happy Friday, and have a lovely weekend! x
Carol Kilgore said…
Julie - You never know what you'll find Under the Tiki Hut :)

Hannah - You rock, Hannah!

Talei - Most definitely. Pour on the moisturizer.
Talli Roland said…
Hehe! These made me laugh. I love 'take it for a walk'! :) Have a great weekend, Carol.
Carol Kilgore said…
Talli - Laughter is wonderful!
Holly Ruggiero said…
So, I misread the first line as “Ten ways to keep yourself fresh”. I’m glad I reread it before I read #1 - ;)
Carol Kilgore said…
Holly -, too. I went back and looked to make sure I typed it the way I meant it.
Cute! I'm going to buy my writing a cocktail. =)

Never thought of it quite like that. But it seems like I might mess up my computer if I take it in the shower with me.
