THE WRITING. . .Caught myself wanting to explain/describe every jot and tittle of what’s going on in the daily life of my Protagonist. Sigh.
Reminder to self: This does not move the plot forward!
Two things contribute to this penchant: 1) I live with these people; I need to know what they are up to day and night. 2) Often when I read fiction I find myself asking something like, “But why or how did they get here; and what about her handbag or her coat that was back in this other scene and is unaccounted for??”
Reminder to self: Read the above reminder.
THE DETAILS. . .Walks. Precious time with unexpected visitor.
