|A tip of the hat to LMS who suggested Maggie's line: "I simply cannot see this happening" in reference to an invisible character. Also, until this panel was written, I didn't realize that Magniloquence had super breath. Now I know. -- Robert Stradley, the Weekend Artist.|

I don't know how often it occurs, but I have heard several authors discussing this. It happens more often when stories aren't pre-scripted, i.e. when they are written more organically, on-the-fly if you will. Rita Rainville has a delightful description of it in her book GENTILE PERSUASION where the author Opal attempts to kill off a main character in a murder mystery. He keeps avoiding the murder attempts and Opal is extremely frustrated. In comics, Faith Erin Hicks has a panel in her book The Adventures of SuperheroGirl that just smacks of this condition. You can see it here. -- Robert

I haven't developed the school yet, but I have several ideas in mind for when the script needs it. --Robert
