The importance of tipping

Still haven't heard back from the three short stories (my babies) I have out there in submission land. Hence the distracting toons while I try to get my brain back into my WIP. Been almost a month I think. I really could do with selling more - need new cardboard for my daughter's shoes.

Here's another tip: get rid of all your dastardly adverbs and adjectives. How many can you leave out? Strong verbs and nouns rock!
