"Oh I may be going down, but I'll take in flames over burning out." -- Uncharted -- Sara Bareilles
Hats off to Serenity Woods for helping me overcome my bout of too-off-the-wall-itis. Her notes from Romance Writers of New Zealand conference shored up my decision to barge ahead with the story idea. Specifically the bit where in her notes on Lucy Gilmour's chat (paraphrasing her notes) 'Be unique! Take on controversial topics. Twist themes!'
Soothes the worry about the decision I'd already made to steamroll ahead.
