The Domino Effect
Writers know that for every action you put on the page you need a reaction. If you have a character behaving recklessly, that character will undoubtedly suffer consequences. They, in a sense, fall down and then spend the rest of the story trying to regain a former if not superior position.
I know that this part of fiction actually mimics real life but I foolishly convinced myself these past couple of months that I could spend another hour writing when I felt the twinges that marked another trip to the chiropractor and my eyes were so blood-shot that I looked like I'd been partying for a week.
So instead of writing this week, I'll be exercising my bad back and not staring at a computer screen until my strained eyes are better.
Have a great week!
