Writing Question of the Day

Why did I spend four pages getting the characters from the scholars' quarters to dinner with the Patron when the maze-like layout of the keep has absolutely no bearing on anything that happens with the plot?

Oh, yea, cause, "Someday it might!"

Cut, cut, cut.

1 comments so far. Got something to say?

I did that in a novel I'm working on - described a maze for no particular reason. And then it turned out that it -did- have something to do with the plot, later. I was quite surprised!
