Phwoar,nice curves :0 [In reply to] Can't Post

It must indeed be pretty difficult to keep track of your sub-creation as author. I expect that there's a problem of mis-remembering now rejected bits and alternate plot lines and getting muddled. It's why authors traditionally need a good editor, to point out that if the character enters an 'upstairs room' he can't exit via the French Windows.

Another problem must be not being able to see the wood for the trees and the trees for the wood.

Your graph reminded me of an anecdote about P G Woodhouse. As he wrote pages of his stories, he would fix them to the walls of his room in a line. The better he thought a given page was, the higher up the wall he would fix it, thus giving him a sort of graph of the current quality of his writing, and enabling him to re-locate pages with which he wasn't yet satisfied. His aim was to get it all 'up to the dado rail' before submitting.

Arthur Martine

"nowimë I am in the West, Furincurunir to the Dwarves (or at least, to their best friend) and by other names in other lands. Mostly they just say 'Oh no it's him - look busy!' "
Or "Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"

                    No... The way I heard it, Mim became Khim.....on a WHIM!!! Rembrethil Send a private message to Rembrethil Apr 15, 5:18pm
                        But wait: was the whim that made Mim begin agin as Khim a whim of Mim, or a whim of Khim? noWizardme Send a private message to noWizardme Apr 15, 9:03pm

                            Whether Khim is now Mim, or Mim now Khim,(and that by whim of either Khim or Mim), is one question that must be asked of him! Rembrethil Send a private message to Rembrethil Apr 15, 9:10pm
