I got this from one of my authors in my email today and it really sums up what I am trying to get across about the book:
So, consider the guidelines relaxed and just be creative, okay? I got an amazing story yesterday that did not really follow the "rules" I set out, but it is perfect exactly the way it is!
Have some fun with your story, because God knows some days it's hard to remember what was fun about our lives "before."
And now, I'm going to try to come up with something else to talk about for awhile! Thanks to Michael, for such an astute observation. And I love the way the British spell "flavor!"
