actual german compound nouns:
Staubsauger (vaccuum cleaner, literally “DUST SUCKER”)
Vorhang (curtain, literally “HANGS IN FRONT”)
Wasserkocher (kettle, literally “WATER BOILER”)

AS SOON AS I SAW “HAND ANKLE” (Handgelenk) I KNEW THESE WERE GERMAN TO ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS.

Some of my favorites:

Glove = HANDSCHUHE (hand shoe)
Hospital = KRANKENHAUS (sick house)
Potato = ERDENAPFEL (ground apple)
Turn Signal = BLINKLICHT (blink light)
Pork = SCHWEINEFLEISCH (pig flesh)

and the weirdest of them all,

Moustache = SCHNURRBART (purring beard??)

“The word poetry comes from the Greek word poiesis which just means “a making”. So if you’ve made it, it’s poetry. Even if it’s breakfast.”

That one time the main character had to use a sharpie to explain that he was… in fact the main character…

DO NOT WRITE A STORY WHERE YOUR MAIN CHARACTER HAS TO DO THIS (unless you are doing it on purpose to be funny). Know what story is being told. It might not be the same one you set out to write, but it will still be worth telling.
