Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is recognition of the pattern.Alfred North Whitehead (1861 - 1947), Dialogues (1954)
So you see, imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering.Brenda Ueland
Write something to suit yourself and many people will like it; write something to suit everybody and scarcely anyone will care for it.Jesse Stuart
I will be going to Dundracon this weekend (which, among other things, means trying to bring my body back to a vaguely diurnal schedule over the weekend, so I'm not a shambling zombie for anything that starts before noon). I should be able to update without any trouble, and I might even have a few writer-observations about the event to share when I get back.
