First, here’s a link to the other blogger’s post. It’s all about how and why to write secrets for your fictional people.
And now, my brief comments on it:
Oh, the metaphors…!
“In some genres this baggage may be carry-on only (I.e. cozy mystery). Other genres require a cast with enough baggage to require military aircraft hangars (I.e. literary fiction, certain types of speculative fiction).”
It’s not a military aircraft hangar, ‘kay? *shakes head* Also, technically not aircraft in said hangar.
Edit: I typed most of this post months ago… It’s a good thing I generally enjoy dramatic irony in fiction, because there’s now a lot of dramatic irony in the metafiction for yours truly. Turns out I was slightly wrong about that ‘not a military aircraft hangar’ quip.
