Serendipity

I get very excited by those times in writing when, in seeking to replace a reference or a motif, which no longer seems so apt, I happen across an alternative that almost magically appears to draw every single thread together to create a much tighter fabric. When its inclusion moves well beyond what was expected and adds, instead, a new clarity to the layers of story, and looks as if everything may have grown from it rather than the other way round. Magic.

Hmmm...sounds like someone's making good progress.

I need some inspiration to press on and finish my book.(Preferably one which doesn't cause me to put on weight.)

Being snowed up in a garret might work, but then you might start craving hot chocolate.

Don't tell people it's magic Paul - that's a trade secret - no it's blood,sweat and tears!

Blood, sweat and tears it is, then.
