While I do love the movie Gone With the Wind, I can never think of it without the scene from The Carol Burnett Show popping into my head.
As you may remember, in the movie, Scarlett tore down the curtains at Tara Plantation to make a dress for herself so Rhett wouldn’t see her in the rags she wore while trying to keep body and soul together.
Carol Burnett did her own version of the same scene.
For me as a writer, I love the surprise and laughs of writing a scene where we think drama will dominate, but something happens to turn things around to make it humorous.
Life is full of both dramatic and humorous moments. As a writer, I like my books to reflect that, and to give my readers a break from the heavy subjects once in a while.
Thanks, Carol Burnett! Your depiction of Scarlet will forever remind me to lighten things up once in a while!
