Charlie and I were talking about our pasts, shaking our heads more in sorrow than in anger about things we know now that we wish we’d known then.
He gave me my one-liner for the week — maybe for all time:
“I always feel like I was an idiot until the day before yesterday.”

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: What do you or what do various of your characters wish you’d known in the past that you or they know now?

Is that when doubts were erased?

That’s when doubts took hold. Socrates said that recognizing one’s ignorance is the beginning of wisdom, which is never achieved.

But the PLOT gets one step closer to its conclusion; who care is the characters hurt? They were stuck.
