"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island." - Walt Disney

Dr. Seuss often encouraged us to expect the unexpected. His books by definition could be a lesson in the unexpected - with his own vocabulary and fun catchy phrases, he has unexpectedly delighted children around the world. Todays Seuss-ism comes from Marco Comes Late:

I heard a strange 'peep' and I took a quick look
And you know what I saw with the look that I took?
A bird laid an egg on my 'rithmetic book!

Embrace the unexpected!

Thanks for dropping by my blog, Sylvia. I have to agree with you about the unexpected in story telling. I write speculative fiction - not a great deal published yet - and the unexpected is a staple of the genre.

That theory can be applied to all of our writing! :) I strive to do that in my fiction to keep it moving.
