Thinking is the most important part

Yep. Just goes to show, thinking is the most important part of writing a story. I put together the ideas for my Mercury story in two sessions on the back of the motorcycle, then used Daniel Abraham’s model for plotting out the narrative/information/function of the scenes, and then I wrote and revised the story in 2 days. Not even very long days. Now it is sitting in a drawer so I can revise it from a fresh viewpoint, though I’m pretty sure scene 1 needs to be cut. Typical. But after all that thinking, the story just wrote itself. Nice.
