As I create this current novel, chock full of supernatural goodness, I'm always striving for reality. I don't mean the appearance of reality. I'm not talking about suspension of disbelief.
I'm talking about making strangeness so real that the reader (and even the author) thinks it may actually have happened in some inexplicable dimension.
I want my work to have that bright, stark, commonness of every day life.
One way authors do that, I think, is to pay attention to days like today.

Thanks for reading, off to write!
