Late Night Post

The clouds moved in over the weekend as we drove to another flea market to take a look at future options. Our umbrellas joined the pop-ups as we walked through the aisles of forgotten memories. I found a rickety old work cart that had potential to be turned into a food stand for my miniatures but my husband wasn’t convinced. Of course, I proceeded to call him a poop.

I shouldn’t have listened because it wasn’t a bank breaker. The cart was only $20 and it was one of those moments when I should have listened to myself because someone else saw it’s potential too. It was gone when we returned. I guess I should have guessed how the day was going to go. I wanted my husband to have a good time, walk around holding hands, and just enjoy the time out together.

But he proceeded to do a grown man kind of pout because shopping isn’t his favorite thing to do. Asking if he wanted anything was a passive aggressive, party-pooper no. Our trip wasn’t a surprise but if you’re partner asks you if you want to do something and you don’t, do them a favor and say no. No one wants to drag another person around all day.

No one ever said marriage or a relationship is going to be perfect. If you think it is, then you need to do a reality check because you’ve never been in a relationship. I guess this is one for the books. I’ll spare my husband any wrath and save for my pages. Writing in the middle of the night is a form of therapy, right?

Speaking of your writing, if you don’t want to leave your characters flat or without personality, you need to give them emotions. Every story needs drama and disagreements, or there wouldn’t be a story. Pour all of those things that don’t go perfect into your writing. This is the one time you can let it all out and be emotional.

My posts are Monday through Friday.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
