oh, hey.

I figured out something fascinating about Lune today. Sometimes it happens like this: the realization just fell into my lap, out of nowhere. I don’t even think I was thinking about Midnight Never Come at the time. It was just, blar, need a break, I think I’ll read the Tiptree antho I got at ICFA, do I want a Sprite to drink?, oh, that’s what’s going on with her.

Or rather, what should be going on with her. It isn’t really in the text yet. In fact, there’s stuff in the text that probably contradicts what I realized today. I’ll need to think about how I’m going to work this in. But I will do so, one way or another — even though it will require some revision — because boy howdy is it important.

I like important. Important means the book just got one step better. (Or will, once I’ve put this in there.)

LBR tally: it’s actually been love for the last few days. With a bit of rhetoric (i.e. politics) mixed in.

Authorial sadism: the love is the sadistic thing.

    Isn’t a kicker when IMPORTANT contradicts what you thought was happening? But if you’re that excited about this, you gotta go with it, right?

    Good luck!

      The contradiction isn’t that major, fortunately. More a “oh, so here’s how Lune really feels about this thing” kind of thing.

    I love those moments when the part of me in the background whisks away the cloth and reveals what I’ve actually been working on. It usually involves something very, very bad happening to my characters– oh, he gets tortured, and I can use him as a font of misinformation from here on out, sucks to be him! It’s such *fun* when it turns out I’ve been working and suddenly a mudslide-avalanche-explosion thing happens even though I wasn’t looking.
