I have talked before about the idea of a 'contract of expectations'. This is not a brilliant new idea of my own, but simply a phrase I latched on to, that may reasonably be called something else, and no doubt is. My epiphany of understanding this concept came from a book by Orson Scott Card,... Read more

What if your character isn't even that damn important to you, and you don't feel like having him change? You can't tell a story then?How often... Read more

Researching the 'rules' can often lead to any conclusion you seek, if you want to build support for your actions. Contradictions seem to abound in terms of specifics,... Read more

The Real Story of Zoe & the Persnicket
0 (0)

Some believe and some don’t. But I know. I’ll confess from the get go that kidnapping might have been a bit strong. There was no real evidence or reason to think she was actually taken against her will. And the idea that a tiny bug could make her go does seem incredulous. But, that said,... Read more
