Hmm this could be very different if reversed. Realistically restless or restlessly realistic. I think I’m more the latter than the first. I’m going through a period in my life when I’m restless for many things I’ve put off or haven’t had the energy for over the recent months.
Each winter I’m restless for spring. Each spring I’m realistic about my gardening skills.. yet restless for the seedlings to grow. Hey, this might be turning into an illustration of my gardening skills.
Show don’t tell.
They were restlessly realistic about their gardening skills.
The compost, seeds and seed trays had been waiting on the table all winter. They both were counting the days till Feburary and the first seeds would be planted.
Lynne’s AtoZ blogging challenge theme in case you couldn’t tell:
Linked to thoughts of emotions and behaviours, my theme is ‘I feel….’. Writers among you will be familiar with the phrase show don’t tell, for others it’s what every novelist tries to do. Authors want to show you the emotion and behaviour without telling you it. Trying to practice showing not telling, I have included an example in each post. I may have got it right, I may not have. Please let me know.
