Demon: “Yo, Angel, check this out. RB is eating cereal without milk, pen in her other hand while she’s writing in a notebook. What’s that about?”
Angel: “It’s called brainstorming. Sometimes so much is going on up in a person’s brain, they have to work out the plot to make sure they don’t get confused. If not careful, an author can confuse a plot or make it too simple.”
Demon: “But no milk in the cereal?
Angel: “… soooo we’re not talking about the notebook.”
Demon: “Ha! Nope. You ASSumed.”
