    Agree on that, Toby. A writer can make snap decisions (I decided as I was writing that a character in Bane of Souls who was heading for a happy-ever-after could just be brutally murdered instead [the story is about a series of murders, so it does fit]), but isn't a slave to a muse whispering in their ear.

    Jo, interesting, as I liked Abendau's Heir a lot. Might even be my favourite of the trilogy. Then again, I also like Best Served Cold less than almost all other Joe Abercrombie fans, so maybe my taste is as perverse as a nocturnal rendezvous with Corkwell.

    Are you saying no authors are slaves to the muses whispering in their ear, or no author has to be? The former seems a bit absolutist.

    My bro was on about Ready Player One the other day and he made it sound pretty good. I am tempted.

    Nice interview, @The Big Peat , and really topical too as Anna will be putting in an appearance at FantasyCon in a couple of weeks.

    Indeed, and perhaps one of my favourite aspects of pantsing is as you say:
    When everything does fall into place and the twists aren't necessarily what you were expecting or would have guessed... that's the point where I instantly forget all the worries along the way as to whether everything would all fit into place.
    Glad you've got there, Jo:)
