It was one of those moments that widens your eyes and puts your jaw on your desk. How could I miss this? You think, and see all of your hard work crumble in front of you. It doesn't actually crumble, most of what you've done is good, but you're caught up in the moment. You get up from the desk - a dignified ragequit, if ever there was one - get a beer from the fridge, and lay on the couch. In that time, you have rationalized that all is not lost. I just need to think about this for a bit, you think to yourself as you crack open your beer and get comfortable.
I was listening to Delain's new album, The Human Contradiction, which is just great, and realized that everything I had built up, over the course of the last month, was built on a fairly simple fallacy. After about four more beers, the album started over again, and I had a thought. Just like that, it was fixed, and I was able to move forward. Which was great, until the moment I realized the coolest thing ever: With the use of a single word, in any part of the book, I would ruin the tension of the whole conflict. I mean, how cool is that?
If you're wondering what the word is, and how I believe it would have torn the whole thing down, I am going to put that into the commentary in the book, so I don't inadvertently spoil it before the thing is out.
Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you all.
