Tracks of the mind

On the way to work this morning, it finally occurred to me what was bothering me about chapter four. I needed a better motive for a character. The new motive is something I remember coming up in conversation with the wife while we were cooking one day, but I couldn't say whether it was yesterday or twenty years ago, nor could I say with certainty that I'm the one who thought of it in the first place. I wonder, does that mean I'll have to credit the wife if by some miracle this thing's ever published? Nah, she'll never remember.

  1. I had an insightful comment, but damned if it didnt slip through the cracks. Yet, one neuron hums with hope. Something written by a forgetful guy had better be published.
