writing everywhere

Point and stare

akirlu says: If the business of writing is about anything, it's about making decisions and living with the consequences.

And it's such a smart true thing that I just wanted to point and stare and go, "Look! Smart true thing!", especially as revisions -- to a sequel, no less -- make this central to my daily life at the moment. The notecards I am writing out for future volumes could easily fall under the category of, "Decisions you've made, and now you have to live with them." Every last one. Some of them with entire invasions based on one clause in one sentence. Butterfly wings, people.

(The entry in whose comment section she says it is spoilery for Wicked -- if you want to see it, it's here, but she's been scrupulous about cut-tagging for any possible spoilers, so I want to be no less careful.)
