E is for Eyes A-Z Blogging Challenge

The eyes are the window to your soul. ~ William Shakespeare

The eyes shout what the lips fear to say. ~ William Henry

The soul that can speak through the eyes, can also kiss with a gaze. ~ Gustav Adolpho Becquer


Eyes are always important characteristics and I like to describe them in my writing. Color is very important to me. It drove me absolutely insane that the Outlander heroine had whisky-colored eyes in the books, but the actress who played the role on Starz had lovely blue eyes. 

In the Cutting Edge stories, the eyes play an unusually significant role. The book begins at the start of the COVID pandemic when everyone is wearing masks. No smiles. No frowns. Just voices. And eyes. So much communication has to happen through visual contact.

And in an enemies-to-friends scenario? Oh, yeah, miscommunication could get very interesting. 


The eyes have it, right? 

Wrong. 

The actual quote is "the ayes have it". Raise your hand and say aye if you knew that.
