There is nothing we can’t do in fiction – the question is – should we?  Part of writing is saying “what happens?”  part of editing is saying “Should it happen?” and more importantly “Is it important to the story?”  Sometimes its a choice: do we go big, or do we go small?

Have you ever seen something in a movie, or on TV that you say ‘I wouldn’t have done that…’ When you’re a writer, you get to decide what people do and the consequences of those actions.   Something to think about.

We live in a world of instant everything – instant food, fiction and news.  We eat, breathe and sleep on the cutting edge.  The only problem is the instant news isn’t always the truth.  By the time the truth is known, the genie is out of the bottle, the cows have burned down the barn, the goats are eating pop-rocks and no one really cares anymore.

Today’s prompt :  The truth isn’t hidden– sometimes its just ignored in favor of something flashier.

Today’s Prompt:  seeing vs SEEING
