Today I want to talk about fake breakthroughs. A fake breakthrough comes when you are writing and you are seized with the sudden belief that putting your novel in the present tense will fix EVERYTHING. Or when you turn your main character into an animal spirit. It’s when you start ripping everything apart because you’re sure you know how to fix it. It’s when you think you deserve a cigarette. When you pat yourself on the back. Or tell someone you think you had a breakthrough.
Tell us about a breakthrough, real or imagined.
