How cute is this!

I've been needing a new office chair for a bit now--the old one having lost its hydraulics and I kept having to adjust the height constantly for comfort.

I found one online and showed my husband--who rarely goes online in the first place.  But he did and order it for my birthday!

How cute is this...

Yep, I know how lucky I am and am thankful for him every single day

Quick tips pulled from the pockets of the writer knapsack

POV and Mirrors

Unless the main POV character can see himself/herself in a mirror, they cannot see his/her face to describe it—they can “feel” expression, but not visually see an expression.

For Example:

Fly Telling

Anger darkened his features as he fought against the need to punch someone.

Deeper POV

His brows tightened, and he clenched his jaw against the need to punch someone.
