In this strange alchemy that is writing, in the last 24 hours I’ve worked on transformations and permutations:

  • in my novel, a thirty-something black haired woman turned into a forty-something gray haired woman

  • in one of my stories, a Russian biplane turned into a Chinese truck

  • a snowbound London suddenly was consumed by a great fire
