So, I've got myself into a bit of a pickle during a revision. The thing is, I keep asking myself questions as to why certain things happen in the story...and I realize that I don't know why.
The stuff just happens.
Well, that's not good enough, is it?
Even if I choose not to hit the reader over the head with every detail about every little thing...I must know. The writer MUST know. If I know, then I can be subtle about how I weave in clues, and make better decisions about what to leave in and what to leave out.
And there's some stuff in a ms that I am playing with right now that I just realized that I did not know the answer to.
So, I've got some stuff to ponder.
While I am pondering, perhaps you can help me with a question I have (and it's not about my story...just JK Rowling's!)
What are Hufflepuff's house colors? We are having a debate here at the Thomas house. Noel assures me they are yellow and black...NO WAY I say. And I want to wear Hufflepuff's* colors when I go to Harry Potter World next week (woohooooo!).
So, I need to know.
P.S. I am quite sure that the hat would have sorted me into Hufflepuff. Gryffindor for bravery, Slytherin for sneaky, Ravenclaw for superbrains....and Hufflepuff for everyone else. Well, ladies and gents, I am everyone else! And proud of it!
