I am clearly at the stage of writing on this book where the book feels like a better book than I am a writer. This is not unusual, of course. I’ve been here before. But this one feels particularly strong because the book’s structure is … ambitious.
Recently I had lunch with friend and fellow writer Matt Horgan where we shared various things going through our head, and I explained that I have tried to build the book in three different structures. I’ll not bore you with specifics, but it’s fair enough to say that I haven’t been taken with any of them. Oh, yes, they each seemed “right” at the time. But when I got into them they didn’t feel quite there, you know?
I’m plugging onward, though.
As I said above, I’ve been here before. The truth will reveal itself.
