If you do not expect the unexpected you will not find it, for it is not to be reached by search or trail.
(I'm looking at the picture, which I chose because it was jolly, and wondering which way the fish jumped.)
Yesterday was unexpected. I didn't expect it. Having dutifully informed all my clients that I'd be back at my desk (well, I'm nearly ALWAYS at my desk - but I mean, back at my desk and open for business) from 10 a.m. I expected to be inundated with work.
Nothing. No e-mails. No phonecalls. NOTHING! ALL DAY.
This was the thought process that ran through my head: Because I dared to take a week off, they have FOUND ANOTHER WRITER. Another writer who is better/cheaper/faster/more intelligent/more diligent than I am.
I WILL NEVER WORK AGAIN.
So instead...I carried on with the screenplay and got on more quickly with it than on the days that I took off especially to work on it.
Now THAT was unexpected.
