Fonts

I don't know what it is about fonts, but it has occurred to me that I write differently depending on which one I am using. Times New Roman makes me feel inefficient and lazy. Why should I use the default when there are so many to choose from? Veranda makes me feel colorful, like I should be describing something. It invokes such imagery---the letters are round and tidy! Courier New makes me feel like a knowledgeable old author. Suddenly my story has more meaning than before. I have a plot, now. I must have a plot; my font face says so.

My story has a feeling to it, an overall air! Choose a font and it can take you anywhere!

It has also occurred to me that there is a fine line between the profound and the pathetic.
