serious Oracle

(no subject)

Every so often, I'm surprised by my writing. My failed NaNovel - the one based on the Reynardine tales - is messy. The paltry 48 pages I managed are all over the place. There's no cohesive narrative. It jumps about and lingers too long on certain scenes. I'm clearly channeling Robin McKinley circa 'Beauty,' only without her lovely prose.

And yet...

It doesn't fully suck. There are lines - paragraphs, even - that suck not at all.
