IS THAT A DRAGON IN YOUR POCKET OR ARE YOU JUST GLAD TO SEE ME...

Here, there be dragons...there, there be dragons...everywhere, there be dragons...

As a writer it's easy to see dragons behind every door.
Editing...
Revising...
Figuring out if I can use the same coffee and filter and just run the water through again...
You know.
Important stuff.

I thought I'd make a list.

THINGS CHARACTERS DO THAT I WOULD NEVER THINK OF DOING

1. Stop at each mirror admiring my tawny legs and my honey golden hair.

2. Go down to the basement when I hear a strange sound when there are Zombies on the loose.

3.Drive on a deserted highway with an eighth of a tank of gas, pick up a hitchhiker, examine a dead body in the road, or get out of my car for any reason other than I've gotten to where I'm going.

Can you think of others????

Run toward people shooting at me.

Although I would do #1. Just, you know, because.

I can't help it, I look in reflective surfaces when I pass by. I don't think I'm all that wonderful, but I must be a closet narcissist or something, because I just have to look.

But I totally would not go into a dark basement, alone, when there are strange things afoot. I'd leave the house and go to the neighbors, maybe. Or get in my car and leave.

Yeah going down to the basement is kind of like taking that moldy container of ? out of the fridge, sniffing it, taking a taste and then saying, "Is this still good?"

Shoot wildly at a person and miss. Every time.
