East of the Sun

an imp observes

Some aspects of writing deserve a warning label.

For instance, if you start to write, you will also start to revise.  Which means eying your work with a critical eye for flaws.  And if you are prudent, you read other works to see how they do (or fail to do so), in order to improve your own bag of tricks.  Do that for long, and you discover you have summoned an imp.  He will sit on your shoulder and treat any work of art before him as a sample for analysis.  And you can't dismiss him.

I've watched Tangled recently.  (Which is a great movie and you should probably watch it before my unsystematic but spoilerific comments.)
