there is a moment when I have struggled with a particular creature, trying my best to make it into something it never wanted to be. Try as I might, the creature fights back and eventually unveils to me what it was supposed to be from the beginning.
This moment just happened, and a would-be second version of a previous character has won the battle to become a completely new entity unto itself. In that moment, the completed work flashes in my brain, and it is a downhill race to the finish.
I love that moment.
