No, this isn't a science project, not with test tubes and beakers, anyway. Call this an incentive for aspiring writers to keep working, to keep pushing forward when all seems frivolous and time-consuming. The reason is simple ... one degree makes a difference.
Water is hot at 211 degrees.
Water boils at 212 degrees.
One degree makes all the difference.
The same may work in your writing career. Now is not the time to turn off the burners and say your writing experiment failed. Don't be content with lukewarm, make things bubble! Go for sizzle and rolling. Experiment with the temperature of your words.
Heat brings life to your story. Creating a boil uses energy. Maintaining a boil requires skill and timing.
Don't be afraid of the heat. Cozy up and sweat ... because one degree can make all the difference!
Til next time ~
