Wet Moon 6 page 26

i think i've talked about this before elsewhere but sometimes i feel like i've painted myself into a corner with Fern. she has all these mysteries around her and there have been some reveals like her talking about her family in volume 2 or the earlier scene in this volume, but i get the sense that at this point any further reveals about who she is or where she came from or what she's doing will never live up to what readers likely have in their imaginations. it'll probably just disappoint in an "oh. that's it?" way.

there is more to reveal about her (whether it's interesting or not is another thing, heh) so i should probably just say screw it and do it anyway, but sometimes i wonder if leaving things mysterious is the best way to go, but then i also wonder if not providing any real answers is a jerk move. back in the early books i didn't think much of it, i had all the time in the world, i'll get to it and the mysterious stuff is part of the comic, but now that i'm outlining the final few books in the series, it's looming over me to really figure out how much to reveal and and how much to leave unanswered.
