The other night I realized I have made a huge tactical error.
You see, the mythology behind my book involves lots of scary, nasty creatures. And the scary, nasty creature I use most prominently in the book is the giant spider (and yes, I am well aware of the fact that this has been done by both The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. No need to point that out). Well, I was writing one of the spider scenes, and I realized in order to properly describe giant spiders, I would actually need to look up pictures of spiders. Enlarged, close-up pictures of spiders. And this was half-an-hour before I needed to go to bed.
Shelob has nothing on the internet!!!!!
Fare thee well, friend!
