Conversations With Gini: Writing Lessons Learned

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 13.266% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

ME: “So I learned something important when I was writing last night.”
GINI: “Oh?”
ME: “There’s a meditation position called ‘siddhasana’.”
GINI: “How’d you learn that in writing?”
ME: “A character in the story meditates.  And it turns out!  To properly seat yourself in siddhasana, you are supposed to seat one heel in your asshole, and the other in your junk.”
GINI: “…that’s… fascinating?”
ME: “That’s not what I learned, though.”
GINI: “What’d you learn?”
ME: “That if, when you’re trying to block out a character’s movements within a scene, you use the phrase ‘She pulled her heel up against her anus,’ you pretty much derail the rest of the chapter.”
