Writing a Novel

For me, writing a novel is like doing a jigsaw puzzle.

I start, seeing the picture, on the cover of the box.

Then the long process of sorting all the little pieces begins.

I create the framework around the edges, and fill in the gaps.

There are times when the work is frustratingly slow,

when I cant get even one little piece to fit.

Yet each piece offers the thrill of achievment.

I can get so absorbed in a puzzle.

When the effort means nothing, to anyone but me. Posted by Hello
