You have an amazing new idea for a book.
It wakes you up in the small hours. Your excitement bubbles over. You frantically haul yourself up into a sitting position, gulp down a glass of water and start to tell your unconscious loved one all about your idea, speaking very fast and not taking a breath.
They don’t share your enthusiasm and mutter some stuff about your mental state, yesterday’s sugar consumption and that half bottle of red you consumed in Writing Corner.
Every time you think of your idea you get a delicious rush of literary happiness and struggle to stop using tweet hashtags such as #amazingnewbookidea and #neverbeendonebefore
It’s great to think that you came up with such a powerful and totally unique idea.
You throw yourself into your story and set to work writing this literary masterpiece. Days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months.
