Sometimes it's the Devil's Elbow - Joan Lennon
It's not as if I'm doing a lot of writing - well, I am, but not writing writing. Not novels. And it's no secret that a novel-writer who is between novels is not a pretty sight. But I do have one, short piece of fiction writing to do, for an anthology. I said I'd do it. I want to do it. And how's that going for me? Well, look at the photo. Says it all.
(Though, you'll notice, in the photo the passengers have helpfully disembarked, ready, no doubt, to give a shove if needed. Catch my characters doing that. Fat chance.)
Writing's like that sometimes. A stalled bus on a virtually vertical hairpin turn. You know that. I know that. And it'll get going again, some time, some how. But in the meantime ...
