The Big O
I was reminded of this recently while reading a chapter for a CP…
Back in my first draft of GOTH, I had a variation on the phrase, “Her mouth formed a stunned O.”
And a very wise person very kindly said to me, “I think you should rethink that phrase. Does one’s mouth ever really make an O? Go to the mirror, and make your mouth into an O, and then tell me what you think.”
Yeah. I did that. I looked ridiculous. I’ve never used that phrase again.
Try it at home, kids!
