The first rule of fiction is you can't talk about fiction.

Well, you can. But you have to accept that you're probably only explaining things to yourself.

Case in point:

The story is a thing.

And the filters of analytical tools--models of plot and structure, modes of analyses--are just ways of looking at it.

They're tools.

You can use them to slice the story up different ways, but it's still the same story.

1002 words on B&I tonight, after deciding I probably was too tired to write. It held off until 8:00 PM to start flowing though. Bastard. Although I finished this scene.

I am on page 448 of 601.

I should probably figure out something for Matthew to be doing in here. He sort of needs a POV soonish.
