Ignoring the rules in most other activities would get you dumped in the 'sin bin' but writing is unique. You just have a cranky old witch to worry about! LOL

** I'm quite tickled with it. I'm delighted at how fresh it sounds when I read it. I've chuckled several times at the humorous dialogue, and I've smiled at how engaging the characters are. I excitedly turn the pages, as if I don't know how it ends. I'm really happy with my efforts, telling myself, "You know, it doesn't need as much revising as I thought". **

This reminds me of one of my favourite after dinner pastimes. I relax in a favourite arm chair, a glass of sauterne by my side, and read and admire one of my own papers or stories. It's the ultimate form of indulgence.

Donna, have you forgotten to share your wine with Endora. If so, I'm not surprised she gets a bit pissed!

Like Luke Skywalker,best to let the force take over, ignore convention and muses, and write yourself to 'The End'.

Then let Endora take a peek, after plying her with wine. *wink*

Q, I should have thought about plying Endora with wine, but that completely escaped me. In fact, I should probably keep her away from the coffee pot. Maybe part of her crankiness is the surfeit of caffeine in her veins. LOL

I like your form of indulgence. :) And I think it's a necessary one, admiring our own words, since we spend a lot of time NOT admiring them, especially when we're in the midst of revisions. I also agree with your advice to just write yourself to "The End"--that way the story can take over and you get swept up in it. Next thing you know, it's time to get some more wine!
