But only if you can focus on the part of the story you right now have to work at.
No brain. NO. I do not need ideas about Theo’s first marriage. It’s at least five years ahead from where we are in the story. I need a character-appropriate ways for Nyx to smash things. Not her reactions to people trying to put her into a dress, as funny as they may be.
Brain, no. BEHAVE.
Detail work like editing seems to help, at least a bit.
