Keith Oatley posted about writing a novel. Once we understand the purpose of a novel, writing becomes easier. Writers have to move with the writing as it progresses. It would be easy if novels already existed within us and we had to simply regurgitate them. Novels progress from within us. We might have the starting point, but it is the act of writing, the act of letting the words and scenes play out, that moves a novel to its completion.
