Writing Can Be Murder

Guilty for days

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 5:35 am

I’m a terrible person.

I am also an aggressive street-crosser. I sometimes forget that not everyone else is, which is how we left poor Maggie and Thelma (polite Canadians that they are) on the other side of the road the other day.

I thought they were with us (Jen Colgan gets bonus points for sticking with me) but when I turned around they were across four lanes of traffic. It was raining and windy, and we still had to register for the conference. When Maggie waved for us to go on without them, we did.

And the guilt ate at me for hours, then days.

  1. What’s worse is, after I told them how much you enjoy killing people…er…characters, I think they were more afraid to follow you than to be left behind.

  2. I think you may be right!

    • Thelma and I live in Montreal, where drivers never stop–they’d rather squish us. We made numberous attempts to cross all those lanes when suddenly cars actually stopped for us. We must have had wimps written all over us.

    Multiple attempts?

    That makes me feel even worse.

    • That can’t be your fault–maybe if we’d had snow not rain, I could have skated across first.
