Feel Your Way

I'm working on scenes of the book. Now I am a pantzer, and don't often plot. I consider the scenes I'm writing and what came previously and what should come next and what they need: danger, sex, tenderness, bonding.

Anyway, sometimes I get a feeling when something should be there, even if it isn't in the synopsis, or critique buddies disagree. I usually go with it.

Remember that you are the expert of this story. Write it. If something that felt right at one time doesn't actually work, you can always fix it.

May things fall into place for you today.
Robin

Found it in a 2002 Cat Calendar, thought you might appreciate it!

This is a WONDERFUL quote. Thanks for letting me know about it. When I read it, I just stared at Mistral on the credenza beside me.

Thanks
Robin
