Visible Invisible Boys


I'm at that moment when you check your notes and realise you intended your MC to be invisible to everyone but a dead girl only he isn't and now you're spinning in your chair thinking, oh crap!

I suspect it all went wrong when Eddie decided to follow the path marked 'Wrong Way' at the crossroads.

Proof you shouldn't mess with the devil.

Spinning some more to figure out which road to travel and to prove the devil shouldn't mess with me.

Yikes! Yeah, it sounds as poor Eddie has a devil prankster on his heels.

I've been here before. It usually manifests as fabulous disappearing glasses or hair that changes color without warning.

And one time--one crazy, not quite sober time--when A MC even changed sex! Now that was a trick.

Visibility is overrated.

I hate(love) when they don't listen properly!

Is it the sort of problem where you can go back in and edit out everyone seeing him, or is it the sort of thing where he's been having conversations with people who see him and you can't take the conversations out and the plot is derailed? Because I'm always having the second type of problem.

Those little suckers tend to have a mind all on their own and sometimes they don't realize that YOU are the writer. Silly rabbits. :)

Have a good weekend, Cate

I have no doubt that you'll straighten it out, or that you're a good chair spinner. Show that devil who's boss, Cate!

Glasses are tricky, Anthony

Totally, Aaron

I dunno, I think I want to kick him, Katey

Definitely the second sort of problem, Kate. We've decided he was never meant to be invisible at all. And when I say we, I mean he decided.

We'd so take silver and gold if chair spinning was an Olympic sport, Natalie

Will do, Kara

I could chair spin straight out of hell, Lee
