Ann Aguirre is a smart lady…

“For me, writing is magic; it’s not a mechanical process. And for me to think about the nuts and bolts that make the machine run, well, it’s like telling a bumblebee he is not aerodynamic enough to fly. The poor bastard’s first reaction is, “Huh? What?” and then he plummets to earth. Logic, once applied to magic, cannot be undone….And so I’m not going to read blogs where they talk about the best way to do this or that. Or how do I do such and such? I can’t analyze it. When you dissect something, you find out how it works, sure, but you no longer have a dynamic, vital entity. Just ask the poor frog floating in Formaldehyde.” ~Ann Aguirre

    There's a lot to be said for that opinion, but I think perhaps not for beginners, who need the fundamentals of story firmly in their grasp before they can cop such an attitude and get away with it. Found your blog via EE's by the way.
