Ya know what you learn writing a book?
Things you think you knew… you did not actually know as well as you thought. — And sometimes it’ll make you feel like you are especially dumb. 😉
You will spend a ridiculous amount of time researching and googling things you thought you knew enough about. — Turns out there’s a lot you don’t actually know about simple things you thought you knew and sometimes what you know slips your mind altogether.
When you are trying to be descriptive and accurate…. there’s a lot you don’t realize you need extra help with.
I have examples!
Tonight alone I’ve googled… Japanese Maples, types of sweaters, plaid scarfs, kitchen decor, various shades of green, the definition of the word rich, how to describe the color yellow, words for describing a kitchen, the name of the silver refrigerators, (It’s stainless steel by the way, I own one! ) what outdoor furniture looks like, synonyms for… bright, dark, muttered, perfect, colorful, exasperated, capture, proud of, and emotion.
Y’all that’s just tonight. & I assure you it’s not just a one night thing. It’s an every day thing.
Anybody ever stumbles across my search history and they’re gonna think I’m an idiot. Like… next level dumb.
That’s okay though… as long as I nail descriptive and accurate. 👌😀
