I really should be asleep.

But I cannot help myself.

I used to think my prose was clean and spare -- that's my preferred sense of aesthetics.

Hah.

I'll probably have another identical epiphany someday. That will be nice. It'll mean that I've improved.

Something else I've come to realise.

A character in a book has only one thought in her/his heads at a time. Kind of. I don't quite know how to articulate this epiphany. But it used to be that I struggled with the point of the scene because my POV character's thoughts wandered off track.

So the solution to that is restraint.
