The best things in life...

3jane did speak thusly on the tribulations of novel-writing:

...if I let characters move at their own pace, they keep wanting to sit on the couch and play video games. It's fun for them but not conducive to plot. (Actually, I have the same problem. When I had The Sims, I didn't do anything. At all. I didn't have to -- the Sim people did shit and I lived through them. I thought about writing about how one can live through the Sims, but it wasn't interesting. It's really just sex and setting people on fire, and that's only fun for non-pixellated folk.)
