I'm going through plot notecards I wrote back in Mayotte (the same cards that feature in the icon I'm using here, actually), which means I wrote them years ago* and don't always remember exactly what I was thinking. Take this gem for example:
X sleeps with Y; not shedding blood.
Huh? I have absolutely NO idea what I was talking about. Whose blood? Why sleeping together and blood on same card? Nope, no idea.
Ah ha! Being the
unfocused, distractable idjit multitasker that I am, I am continuing to read, edit, and file the cards as I type this entry, and I just came across a card that explains the above reference to bloodshed! I'm not as daft as I think I am. Er, or something.
* So long ago that three of the five POV characters had different names. :P The joys of plotting before worldbuilding
