Writing, you are your best critic in some ways. If something bothers you as you re-read, it’s definitely not quite there. As in everything in life, listen to that little voice inside you.
I had a moment like that yesterday. It was only a few lines, but it just didn’t read quite as I wanted. Arrgh!
So, on the verge of publication, yep, yesterday I rewrote some of a Frontiers love scene.
I’ve discussed this problem previously. “Intimacy” is so difficult to write well. A real pain. There’s the narrowest of lines between “Got it! That works!” vs…. “Good grief, that’s just embarrassing….”
That issue off my chest (again), how about a “romantic” landscape photo for midweek? Iford Manor, Wiltshire:
It’s not a “Carson, would you please ask the new chauffeur to bring the motor around,” Downton Abbey type of manor. However, the house is thought to date originally to the late 1400s. Its garden was used a few years ago for a wedding in an episode of the TV series Mistresses.
Have a good Wednesday. 🙂
