The act of writing surprises me all the time. A miraculous thing happens when you have an idea and you want to convert it into words... and then you start to create a work of art, and that's another miracle, and it remains mysterious to the writer, or to this writer anyway.
We inherit plots. There are only two or three in the world, five or six at most. We ride them like treadmills.
