Reading through comments I got on a draft of a thing I run across one that goes roughly like this: “You got the words backwards. The sentence as is doesn’t make sense unless the character is a lesbian.”
The character is a lesbian*. That was the sentence I was hoping would clue in readers in case they glossed over the part where she was kissing girls in the previous scene.
Note to self: Too subtle is not a virtue. Stop it.
*Except nobody would call her that, because it’s the future as dictated by me, and in my future there are no rednecks and vocabulary makes sense. People have noticed the missing rednecks too…
