To my muse:
I saw you smile and had to write a lengthy scene to describe the beauty of that expression. (See pg. 4)
I saw you laugh and had to write witty dialog worthy of such a marvelous sound. (See pg. 10)
I saw you cry and had to write a tragic moment to explain away your tears. (See pg. 75)
I saw you with Henry and had to write a damsel-in-distress scene to rescue you from his foul grip. (See pg. 148)
I saw you with Henry again and had to write a twist-ending. (See pg. 342)
I saw you move into Henry's apartment and had to write a proposal for a gritty thriller, which my agent sold to a major publishing house in a six-book deal.
Thanks for all the inspiration.
