Clarity: I Give Up


I’m rereading Kerry Greenwood’s series of Corinna Chapman books. And loving it as usual. 

Also making a realization – Greenwood, like most really good writers, does not rely on “the big misunderstanding”.

 You know, the situation where one person says something and another person misunderstands what is said and acts accordingly.

 This can happen in real life. But what happens even more in my real life is – one person, usually me, is not clear as to what the other person wants and that same person, again me, has no clue how to ask for clarity.

 So here I go back into the safe, comfortable space of the always reliable, usually clear spoken, fictional men in books.

 Like Corinna’s Daniel.

 Thanks for him, Kerry.
