Shilling Jane

Good tip on Jane Espenson's blog today about starting a scene where opening lines make it clear what you missed before you walked in on the middle or end of the conversation. She sums it up better than I could so go read it. Most of us probably do this anyway as part of the "come in as late as possible" and "leave as early as possible" scene construction rule, but I love it when I run across stuff that I already know but didn't know I know until somebody who knows it better tells me that I know it even though I don't know that I know it. Ya know?
