Scribbledehobbledehoyden: The Magpie's Eye: Page 146


A rainbow blindfold.  Then the simple surgical equivalent.  Followed by a cartoon figure falling past a curve that represents a planet or a star, and the annotations:

Lucifer fell upward for ten days,
In space all directions are the same.

Long ago I had a word program where you pressed F7 for "search."  So F7 "shrugged" meant I should go through the typescript of whatever I was working on, looking for instances of that word.  Sometimes you work a simple word too hard and you have to go through the story rephrasing, lest it appear so often the reader will wonder what subtle literary thing you mean by it.
