Cutting stone tile is not as hard as I thought it would be. Removing stone tile that’s been on the wall for years, however, is beyond challenging. I’ve also learned that some characters, like some people, are shockingly difficult to deal with.
I’m a DIYer. My current project is completing the tile in the kid’s bathroom (the previous owners did not tile a section for reasons unknown). I’ve cut most of the tile for the floor but I need to remove two of the trim tiles from the wall before laying those floor tiles.
But the tile is adhered to the wall with cement. Cement.
I now have an eight-inch-long hole in the drywall to repair before I’ll be able to put new trim pieces in. Such is the life of a DIYer.
This week I’ve also been dealing with a very challenging character. He’s been trying to hijack the story since his inception. He’s a minor character who badly wants to be a main character.
Currently, he is trying to hijack the ending and make the confrontation with him the denouement. That’s not at all how I’ve been planning on the story ending, but I’m always open to feedback, even from my characters, so I will take his… errr… suggestion into consideration. In exchange he needs to start behaving, or else he may lose what scenes he has.
Character, you have been warned.
