Concrete Detail With My Professor

I wanted to share this hilarious video with you guys.  I find it to be very entertaining but it may only interest the creative writers out there!  Sorry to leave some of you out... But, honestly- this video is pretty funny even if you are a non-writing nerd.

Geoff Herbach is one of my professor's at MSU and I absolutely adore him.  (He may or may not be the professor whom I have referred to as genius here and there.  Heh!)  This is 1 of 5 videos that will be posted on Figment.com for a feature called: Stupid Craft.  Stupid Craft is aimed at the novice writer and will be offering valuable tips and writing exercises.  Figment has a mostly "teen" following, but there are plenty of older members too.. It's a great writing community and I'd definitely recommend checking out the site- as well as following all 5 of the Stupid Craft videos.

This particular segment is on concrete detail and makes me giggle like a little school girl.  There is lots of awkward humor, which I completely eat up.  I'd love to hear/read your enhanced version of the "bad" sentences from the video:
Bobby was such a nice boy.  He would help people who needed to be helped.  But something wasn't right.  Bobby felt sad every day of his life.  


Leave a comment or send me an email at: azia.archer@gmail.com (if you don't feel like sharing with everyone!)  Like I said, I'm very interested to see how you play around with it!

Have a wonderful day!  And... I also love you!
