I ran into some computer problems earlier this week, so I took my laptop into the paper to have the tech guys take a look. Here's the part I loved. The guy who was helping me had a big sign on his desk that said MOST PEOPLE ARE A WASTE OF TIME.
Is this not the perfect, absolutely perfect telling detail?
I want to turn my tech guy into a character and put him in a story.
Naomi Shihab Nye has a wonderful bit about finding poems in the strangest places. I feel the same way about characters.
