Chekhov Threatens Pleiades

Okay.  It's December.  This is a very busy, and odd, time of year.  So many odd obligations.  Family functions, normal family days, and writing promises.  I have to try to adhere to all of them, plus maintain my sanity.  Plus Pleiades isn't going to make it any easier.  Muses never follow set schedules, do they?

That's why I've come up with this plan.  Have you heard of Chekhov's Gun?  This principle basically states that if you show a loaded gun at the start of your story, you need to use it by the end.  So here's what I'll do. I'll post this picture now, and if my muse doesn't work for me by the end of the week, I may use it.

Fine.  I won't use it, but she doesn't need to know that.  Here's hoping the inspiration flows.  Otherwise I don't know what I'll do!


  1. I like that idea :) I hope your muse kicks in soon :)


  2. Oh no! It's only a euphemism...put the gun down! It will be all right. I promise.

  3. Lurvs them land yatchs ...

    Visiting from "And You Are ...?"

    See ya round my Countdown to Kitschmas!

  4. I drove a Lincoln Continental for my driver's test to get my license. That car was a boat, and difficult to parallel park in, but I got it done. :D
