I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), and several Kindle ebooks.

Commercially Writing

I'm not much of a TV watcher anymore, but sometimes a commercial catches my attention. I like a TV commercial that's well-written, that tells a story, and that is subtle in its sales pitch. If it's a bit ironic, so much the better.

When I saw this video of several Ameriquest commercials that a cousin of mine posted on Facebook, I knew I had to put it on this blog. You gotta love the writing behind these little stories, (but don't judge too quickly!):

Was that entertaining, or what?

I love a good commercial and they're making some good ones nowadays. I like that one where the parents are sitting out on the patio and they're texting and the kids are reprimanding them. Funny stuff.

I rarely see a commercial since when one comes on Hubby hits the remote and changes to a movie channel without commercials. *sighs*

Those are GREAT!!!!!!!!! Yesterday we spent all of our rhetorical studies class analyzing commercials. I think I may take these to Norfolk. Professor Moberly would love them.
