This picture reminds me on my 41st birthday just how wondrous and beautiful the universe is. This picture of Comet Lovejoy, with its ever-changing tail nestled into a sea of stars, is simply glorious. I’m happy to be alive today to see beauty like this, and proud to write stories that take place in that same starry sky.
There have been countless projects I’ve worked on over the years where I’ve followed this exact track. Is it the best way to write? Hell, no, but I think anyone who has gone through any major project like this can relate.
