I'm not a great typist. I'm fast, but I make lots of mistake. You know who's really terrific at typing and never makes mistakes? Anyone on a television show or in the movies. Every time the hero, heroine, or some other character sits down at the computer what they type is perfect. I know that because it's always displayed on the screen, and they never have to go back to fix a typo. But that's only part of what's amazing. I'm also astonished how they can sit down at any brand of computer in any office or war zone and within seconds know exactly how to manage every program. That's skill, let me tell you!
But I shouldn't be surprised. After all these same heroes can leap into any plane or helicopter and have it flying in no time. And boy do they know how to dodge bullets. I love movies. They're so realistic.
I am a retired copywriter. For 40 years I wrote for major agencies and developed some campaigns you would know. Like most writers, I love to give my opinion, and since I am so familiar with advertising this is the area I chose to comment on.
Actually I'm not that cranky. I am as fond
of as many things as I detest. But since most people only hear what one doesn't like, I might as well go with cranky.For my other blog idleideasfactory I am putting out there things I have written and ideas for books, screenplays, stage plays, and even products that I will not have time in life to follow through on. If
anyone can profit from them, be my guest.
