I should have checked. My heroine is on a yacht one day out of the Canary Islands and I thought I’d write in a stranded scuba diver…
It makes sense if you have the whole story – honest.
So, I’m talking it over with a friend and he says – Nope. Wouldn’t happen.
Why not? I asked.
It’s the Atlantic. The sea there is deep.
Like deep sea fishing?
He sighs. Like Titanic deep.
So now I have to delete a few things in order to get my heroine to meet a scuba diver where he isn’t being a physical impossibility…
I just wish I’d checked my facts before writing the scene.
