Expectation vs outcome - the short version

One of the many problems with writing is that you have this fantastic idea of how the story will turn out and how your characters will be. You can't wait to pull the images from your head onto the pages of your manuscript.

  2. Those look simply delicious! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. LOL! True. But it's the taste that matters, right? Same with writing. It may not turn out exactly how you imagined, but as long as it reads well, who cares? :)

    Linda, that's very true. And those were good scones! :D
