I managed to write 500 words of FOA today, need to type them in. Also wrote a piece of flash fiction Flash DaVinci Co-Ed which is also about 500 words.
One of my author friends on Facebook was talking about madness. I knew there was a good quote from Scaramouche when he is in the bedroom talking to a man before he goes to try kill the Marquis de Mayne. The only quote I can find on the internet is, "I also believe in laughter and I know the world is mad." Which is also similar to the opening line of the book. My wife bought me the DVD a couple of years ago but I cannot play it because it is for the wrong region (silly ASDA there buying in the wrong stuff!) So all day I have tried to find the quote somewhere and this is now what today's piece is about. Laughing keeps us healthy which is a quote from Proverbs. But also being acting cheery when you are not can put a strain on your heart and you die younger. So what does this mean? We need to "Praise the Lord at all times," as King David said, to take our minds off our troubles and to enjoy laughing without lies to keep us healthy and alive longer.
