amkuska commented on my last post about interrogating my characters to find The Answer to what was bugging me. Good idea, and I did some, but unfortunately the question was more- why would a big company attack its own assets, and kill their own employees?
I have discovered, with myself, that walking stimulates ideas. Think of the question, walk, think, postulate. So I did this. Long walk to a coffee shop the other morning. And huzzah! I have solved the big problem that was holding my re-write back.
I know this is where I am supposed to tell you all my EUREKA moment. But if I did that, when you read my book you would know the big thing happening behind the scenes, and it wont be as fun to reveal to you.
