And by “people,” I mean…. [Jan. 15th, 2015|10:15 pm]

I was on the phone with my favorite great-aunt today, and I told her that I had been going through my stories in a particular setting, writing down a master file of who was who and who was where and who was related to which other person so that I wouldn’t contradict myself in future.


Auntie: “Oh, that’s good! Because some people get really engrossed in their reading and then get irate when there are contradictions and mistakes. And by ‘people,’ I mean your uncle.”

Me, laughing: “He’s not the only one.”

Auntie: “No, dear, but I live with your uncle.”

In this case I'm working on a mosaic novel.

Ah hah! (My next suggestion was going to be, can these be braided to novel length?)
