And then after feeling red as a hornet, you sit down to write, and suddenly your MC is telling important supporting characters off, flashing a sword she never had before because this is a contemporary novel. And then someone dies a tragic and horrid death that has absolutely nothing to do with the sword, it's more like they spontaneously com-bust and then...
Wait. Is red hornet a saying or did I just mutilate that and mix two different sayings--one referring to being red and the other to being a hornet?
Yeah. You get the picture. Ever felt like that?
~This is not in reference to any writer-world stuff. So, not rejection related.
~I did mutilate it. I looked it up. It's supposed to be, "Madder than a red hornet." I attached pictures because to me they don't look very mad. Just busy as a bee working. :) Oh and apparently it's a wasp, not a hornet.
