When we do this...

We know it's not always going to be this...

We know we should expect it to be more like this...


What do you do when you encounter this?

Take a this...

and do this...

That this...

might not be telling you you've hit this...

But it usually is a sign you're going this..

Maybe it's telling you your plot is doing this...

or this...

or maybe your main character needs to do this...

So remember do do this...

the next time you run into this...

You might find it's hiding this...

But of course, it could be hiding this.


Tomorrow, I'm hosting a stop on Elisa Lorello and Sarah Girrell's blog tour promoting their book Why I Love Singlehood. Do drop by and say hello.


  1. Elspeth, I loved THIS! Great, humorous reminder of perspective!

  2. Elspeth - Thank you, thank you!! I needed that! And you know what's weird? I mean, Twilight Zone weird? My blog post going up in a couple of hours is called "Don't Forget Your Second Wind..."

  3. And such a cute little dragon, too :)

  4. Elizabeth; Why thank you *blush*!

    Margot; Cue the spooky music...

    Carol; Isn't he adorable? I'm sure he'd be a welcome addition to any plot.

  5. If it's not a cliff, it's a pothole big enough to swallow a semi. It's all about slogging along.

    Romance with a Twist--of Mystery

  6. Why do I keep forgetting that dragon? I am sure it is like cooking a Danish dinner and forgetting the potatoes! ;)

  7. Terry; You're *so* right! Aren't those potholes the worst?

    Dorte; Maybe the dragon just keeps poking its head into my imagination. However, maybe he's still hiding for you. Look closer.

  8. I would go investigate the "holes" to see what's there.

  9. Hilarious. I'm looking at one of those rock walls right now. I guess I should go hunting for that dragon.

  10. Helen; Good for you. Take a flashlight.

    Anne; Carry a fire extinguisher with you at all times. Trust me.

  11. Elspeth-this is awesome-Great imagery.

    *Finding a dragon might not always be a bad thing. :-)

  12. The trick is to look at the hole without falling in and losing everything,

  13. Kerry; Thank you! Finding a dragon is *never a bad thing* - especially on a chilly night!

    Mary; That is the trick, isn't it? Unfortunately, in my experience the holes are really, really good at disguising themselves.

  14. I've been feeling like the guy with the hard hat and the shovel this week! :)
