My favorite part of the writing process would have to be that totally uncharted and heart-breakingly finite spell when  all the lights are suddenly switched on, when the scene is exquisitely illuminated, when all I have to do is hold on and write fast enough to capture the gift being given to me, to keep writing for as long as the dazzling alignment of stars lasts, and to brook no distractions, until, inevitably, the magic slowly fades and I’m back to just ordinary, seat-in-the-chair writing.
