I used to love family game time when I was younger and we all sat around a massive jigsaw puzzle, trying to find which piece goes where. Sometimes it got frustrating because the piece I had didn't fit where I wanted it to go, and sometimes I just felt like giving up (especially when faced with endless blue tiles of sky).
Isn't life just like one big jigsaw puzzle. You're constantly finding the pieces to put together, sometimes even banging away at odd shaped pieces to make them fit. That's how I feel sometimes, and as a writer it's my job to create a puzzle for my characters (and the readers) to try and piece together.
When will the jigsaw be complete? Well, that all depends on what you're aiming for. If you can see your goal and know exactly what you're doing, I can say that you're almost there. Just a few more annoying pieces to bang into place along the way. If you're not, there's no need to despair. Finding the pieces could be even more fun and challenging.
As for me, I can see my puzzle coming together. I'm just enjoying putting the puzzle together on my way.
So, how is your jigsaw puzzle going? Is it near complete or are you just beginning?
