What I Love About Writing

Actually, I love lots of things about writing, but here's one in particular that I always comment to Vicki about when it happens (and now the poor woman has to read about it here, too):

I get a huge thrill when, as I'm thinking about some aspect of the current novel, I suddenly realize there's a perfect bridge between two disparate parts of the story.  It always hits me as such a revelation that I wonder if maybe, somehow, I'd always subconsciously planned for it to come together like that.  And then I recognize that that's bullshit and I just got lucky!

Had one of those tonight for novel # 3, and it's a beauty.  But if you ask me later, I'll always claim I planned it this way!
