It's always good to check and see who's friends with whom when developing plot twists, right? Right. As in North Korea being friends with Russia. Strange bedfellows, once upon a time, but no more. My Muse was going in one direction, and per usual, decided to tack on something additional. Being the perfectionist I am, naturally I had to check it out, even though I already knew the answer. I'm also a political fiend. I could hear my Muse laughing. How gauche! The Muse can be tough to work with, at times, but I couldn't do without her. Or, is it him? I honestly don't know.
I do know the Muse is always correct.
Trust the Muse.
