Why Must We Let Logic Rule Us, Anyway?

I just had this awesome dream, which would make a great story — except for the fact that it’s based on this kind of science that… isn’t. That and there were these major plot points that just don’t make sense to a waking mind. I woke up and got as far as, That was really… And then I thought, Oh. And there was much frowning.

I mean, the science is something maybe I could fudge. Make up a magic thing or match it to some kind of theoretical science… But now that I’m awake I have no idea how to justify the plot twist at the end of the book. The fact that she was already dead doesn’t… I mean, even in my head how did that translate tragedy into success?

The more I think about it, the more confused it becomes, until now all I have is the tiniest, veriest fraction, ripped from the narrative.

It’s a real shame cause it’s a great story. You know, except for that whole thing where it’s based on all these pivot points that are totally illogical.
