The last two days at work have been harried, not to mention the weirdness at home. It was brought to my attention that it was a full moon week and then it all made sense.
I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced the Full Moon Effect, but it is a real thing. Hospitals say the ER is full of craziness on those days. Many police forces use more officers to patrol on those nights. And I know for a fact that the principal sees a lot more discipline problems during those days. Studies have shown there are more babies born, more crime, more suicides, and even more dog bites! Craziness abounds.
It got me to wondering if this strange phenomenon affects my writing. What happens to my characters during this full moon phase? Do my villains become more villainous? Does my hero do more heroic deeds? Does my heroine pull on her cranky pants? I honestly do not know. 🙂
But isn’t it an interesting thought?
