I find myself late for meeting some friends for the evening. It got me thinking of how much more interesting it would be if I could attribute my tardiness to something other than working late. Think of a scene from the point of view of someone late for a blind date. What happens to make them late. Write the scene again from the point of view of the person kept waiting. What do they do, think, feel? Try to add humour or adventure. Right, I’m off!
