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.

This lack of awareness of how everything works together leads many writers to try to write by the rules. After all, if you see your story as a machine with discrete parts, all of which perform a limited function, then it’s easy to think you can just follow the instruction manual when you put it all together. The truth is a lot sloppier. A novel is an ecosystem, where every living thing in it connects to every other one with feedback loops that we might not fully understand.

Comment:This gives an incisive insight into how so many writers lose sight of the goals of novel writing (and in some ways, short story writing). While I prefer mechanistic metaphors than that of the ecosystem. But now that I think about it, the ecosystem is a great metaphor for what the mind of the reader as they read a novel, or for the process off the construction of a novel, the novel itself is a static collection of symbols. Warning: This is a work in progress. -- Fritz. {{subst:0spaces}}
