#HappyMonday! I heard earlier on the radio that "today" is the most downer day of the year. Yep, nothing like an upbeat start to our week, eh! 😂🌧🎞🇬🇧#video #mondaymotivation #homeoffice #weather #travel #rain #January #Hertfordshire #England #photos #photography #writing #writers #authors #microsoftsurface #novels #manuscript #romance #history #expats #humor
Back on Friday morning, writing a bit in the cold of the house waiting for the heat to be restored, I was penning a “three-way” argument. Suddenly one of the characters is shouting at another. After I finished, a continuity issue hit me: I realized in the shouting I had gotten carried away and forgot that character had also just blurted out a secret not meant for the third person in the room to hear – as of then.
It was meant to be revealed LATER in the tale. Yet as I thought about it, I loved the accident that I had accidentally just written; that the secret had been let out of the bag in a fit of temper. That sort of thing can happen in our own real lives, of course.
It read as wonderfully genuine. So I jumped forward and scrubbed the later revelation of that secret (a scene which I had, frankly, never really liked). Writing mistakes sometimes can be your “friend.”
