Sometimes you spend six hours working on a story, only to realise that it is not the right story at all. However, the tale in this sting is that invariably the exact moment – when you realise you’ve found the right path – is truly magical.
Some stories I know before I start, others I have a rough idea of an idea which may work. This was one of those ideas. It was working, but I wasn’t enjoying it. It wasn’t exactly grabbing me.
