Leopard print at SMUT

Armor, which sortof worked, at SMUT last night:







Priscilla Long writes in The Writer's Portable Mentor, a book that I wish I could tuck away with me and escape for a few days with:

To develop our own voice, we write truthfully, and in detail. We strive for extreme accuracy. We use our own material, whatever we discover that to be. We write about whatever is central to who we are in this world. We work out our own thoughts in our own words, not to please, not to impress, but to discover what it is is that we have to say.

From models we take strategy, structure, and technique. The fact that we are working our own most urgent material acts as counterweight to the model and ultimately allows us to pull it away altogether, with only scents or hints of the model extant in the new work.
