seaside hand made shades




Beside the sea a beach towel is in readiness.

"Hand made ice cream" is offered outside a restaurant in Mount Pleasant.  It sets me wondering and worrying a little about the extent to which hands might be involved.

"I have just finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey," says an 82 year old gynaecologist of my acquaintance. "I read it for its medical information. The descriptions of sado-masochist sex were of little interest to me."

I wouldn't have dared include those last two sentences in any work of fiction I was writing. Too neat, too contrived. Real life needs breaking down and re-assembling if it's to be persuasive in a novel.

Perhaps real life is the product of Intelligent Design, a depressing thought.
