Making the Mark

A recent interview gave me a nice anecdote about Governor Chiles setting up archery targets in the Mansion yard and firing away some afternoons for the fun of it. It got me thinking about the writing process. It really is true that the more times you try to set a mood or set a scene and you get it right, muscle memory begins to kick in. Which is why fixing mistakes early on is important when you've got 15-20 chapters to plan.
