Note to self:

I can’t see the wind blow,

but I can see wild grasses ripple under the moonlight,

the daffodils nod their golden heads,

and the crests of wavelets sparkle in the noonday sun.


I don’t need the wind to howl,

when I can hear leaves gossip in the trees,

a dead branch skritch against my bedroom window,

and dry flowers rustle before forgotten gravestones.


Maybe ‘hidden’ characters – secondary characters with ulterior motives – work the same way. I cannot explicitly write about what they do. At least, not too early. I can only write about the effects of their actions, and maybe their reactions to these effects.

This could be tricky.

And fun 🙂
