Do unto others (#MFRWAuthor)

Week ten Marketing for Romance Writers blog challenge is things only my family would understand. My siblings and I use the term “do-less” to describe people who are a combination of useless, clueless, and helpless, and also short on common sense.

My mother used this adjective, and we all picked it up. I’ve never heard anyone else use it. I never knew if it originated in her native West Virginia or if it was her own original construct, but I suspect the latter. It is very useful, however, in conveying a lot of information and more than a little disdain.

I can’t wait to read family stories from my fellow authors here.
