Writing is like a puzzle, isn’t it?—Faithful Reader
That’s what he said to me last night when he looked over and saw me toying with a block of text. Writing is a sort of puzzle, one with constantly shifting pieces. You must find all the pieces and put them together in some meaningful way before the pieces shift and the thought falls apart. When it works, when all of the pieces lock together, it is thrilling, and knowing that no two people could ever take the same story idea and produce the same story, that is a beautiful thing.
