Sorry, no snippets today. I have a question to pose...
Why, when we are out-of-sorts (irritable, grumpy, tempestous, cranky, for me, bitchy), do we strike out at those who least deserve it?
And to make this post somewhat writing related, do you ever have your characters behave in a similar manner, give them less-desirable traits? If you're a reader, how do you feel about a character with flaws like that?
We aren't perfect; coloured with everything from temper to regret for such; does literature represent those shades? Does art imitate life??
