I ignored him, which he's come to expect when I'm writing and he interrupts, but later I thought back to how often he's said that to me. The first time I recall hearing it was while working on Almost Taken, my first historical romance. I busted out laughing at something I'd written a few days before because, well, it was funny, I'd totally forgotten I'd written it and it was a happy surprise.
WELL, that thinking has changed and this is why: It has to be a good sign that, as hypercritical as I am about my own writing (like every writer I know), I occasionally laugh when I'm working on a new scene or editing an old one. That has to mean something funny is going on, right? Not the fall out of your chair laughing kind of funny,
RC, moth-bntb realizes his remarks can't deter me from laughing at whatever humorous lines I've penned and has even been known to listen patiently when I read them aloud. He may crack a smile or gift me with a manly chuckle.
Is there someone in your life who has a laugh you love to hear? Friend, child, parent, grandchild? Belly laugh, cackle, titter, giggle? Any inappropriate places they've busted out with a laugh?
