Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the TMP tag, link back to me (or not), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen. I have feelings!
OMG, I am so tired of identical twins being used in fiction. It’s such a letdown really, like the writer has simply run out of imagination. I sometimes enjoy a story or movie until it turns out that “the twin” did the thing. UGH! It’s starting to feel like duex ex machina every time now ~ you know what I mean? That’s when a writer gets the story out of a tangled mess by plopping in something out of the blue. Literally the definition means “a god from a machine” from when the ancients suspended a crane over the stage to drop down a god during sticky wickets. That’s how I think of twins in fiction. How could the hero have been home with his wife AND committing the murder? Simple… plop in a twin. How could the beautiful mysterious woman be dead and also not dead? TWIN! Grrrr…
