Stumbled across this Mark Twain quote as I'm going through revisions to a new novel I hope to get to my editor tomorrow: "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
Now if only I were writing nonfiction! Instead I'm trying to remember all the many things I changed between this draft and the last one, and flow them through consistently.
Which leaves me thinking what a weird life I lead, that I spend my days trying to make stories that aren't true seem like they are. - Meg
