21 fortunes for writers

I’ve always thought it would be fun to write the fortunes found in fortune cookies.

I’m not nearly clever enough to come up with, “The fortune you seek is in another cookie,” or, “It would be best to maintain a low profile for now,” but see what you think of these:

  1. Leo Tolstoy handwrote War and Peace by candlelight.
  2. Use the singular “they.” Go on. Try it.
  3. Hypergraphia: A compulsion to write, sometimes uncontrollably.
  4. Every time you misuse an exclamation mark, a puppy dies.
  5. Clarity begins at home.
  6. Read what makes you happy.
  7. It’s all fun and games until you edit a friend’s copy.
  8. Wasn’t there a Dickens novel about this?
  9. Most of your writing is fine.
  10. There is not an app for that.
  11. “A preposition is a terrible thing to end a sentence with.”—Winston Churchill
  12. A new pair of shoes will do you a world of good.
  13. Life would be easy if it weren’t for other people.
  14. Copyright 2016.
  15. Vive la revolution!
  16. Confusion to the IT Department.
  17. Beware of fallen rocks.
  18. Have you ever considered piracy?
  19. A sentence should never be cruel and unusual.
  20. Never judge a book by its movie.
  21. Someday, you will miss today.
