It was a busy day at work, and I ended up completely fuzz-brained. But when I sat down to write, after much groaning and fuss, I ended up with a fun, new mini action scene.
When you have a character like George - who is larger than life, especially in comparison to the setting - it is both fun and easy to let him be miraculous. I mean, he's the sort of character who walks unarmed into a room full of armed thugs, and you hear a bunch of thumps and thuds, and then George is the only one who walks out again. Except he isn't really like that. He just gives that impression, not intentionally, but because he learned to be sneaky as a child.
And it can be even more fun to watch him do what he does, sometimes. (It's nice to keep the mystery, too, but it can be even funnier if you know he's not quite that cool.)
