Some of you know that my current work in progress is in the hands of my editor. Today she sent an email with this:
“This is really clever. Seriously clever. You’ve got 2 sequels — chapters 2 and 3 — to chapter 1, that lead seamlessly as a pair to chapter 4. Really really really well done, and something you should use at some time in the future when you give a class on how to break rules to benefit the story.”
Do you think I should tell her it was a fluke, or let her continue thinking I’m brilliant?

you already know the answer to that question…
You’re right. Especially since the editor reads this blog! I confessed to her I thought it was a fluke. She thinks it’s my instinct for timing. I think that’s a compromise between being brilliant and being clueless.
What! It was not a fluke. I think sometimes we have skills that go untapped till something inspires us. No fluke, you had it in you already. 🙂
It’s that subconscious. I think mine is smarter than my brain.
LoL nooooo 🙂 Phft 😏
And the subconscious is an amazing thing…
I think you should go ahead and teach the class!
