Scribblings of a Mad Writer

“There are some books that refuse to be written. They stand their ground year after year and will not be persuaded. It isn’t because the book is not there and worth being written — it is only because the right form of the story does not present itself. There is only one right form for a story and if you fail to find that form the story will not tell itself.”

This is so true. I have had stories in my head for years until all of a sudden something clicked and it was ready to go. Very frustrating but it is something that can be worked with, most days.
