The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

Comments on metaphors for writing

Cooking as a metaphor for writing[edit]


I like cooking/dining as a metaphor for writing/reading. Being a chef is different than being the diner, it takes longer to prepare a meal than eat it, the experience of cooking is different than the experience of eating, and the chef is really engaged with creating a dining experience. (I leave the substitution of the writing/reading verbs and nouns as exercise for the reader.)

A little later...

I forgot to add one of the more obvious parallels between cooking and writing. It takes less time to eat the meal than it did to prepare it. Significantly expanded when considering how long it takes to write a novel and how long it takes to read it.
