My youngest has fallen into the habit of reading from my book to his friends. What can you do when someone else's performance of your writing makes you cringe?
'Well, how do you perform words that march across the page?' he said.
'Like this,' and I showed him how I use eye and slight head movement to track the birds' movements.
Subtle - but even he admitted it works (as long I remember not to raise my eyebrows too much!)
Well, young men always have to have the last word, don't they?
