That Brief Glimpse

Ever sit and think blindly about anything and everything? Of course you do, everyone does. 
Then a scene comes into your head. You let continue to see where it goes. You've written scenes like this before, but this isn't one of those. You let it play out further. Then a hole opens and you get a brief glimpse of something profound. 

What is that? 

You get a quick glance of the whole shebang. This ever happen to you? It's almost like those moments when you're about to fall asleep and you feel like falling. 

All of the "writing secrets" are laid out before you and you have no pen or pencil to jot them down. 

Deep thinking, as they call it in philosophy? 


But there's something more to it. 

I see and feel and know something at that moment. A portal had been opened and I got a brief snapshot of something so great and perfect, whole. 

Afterwards it's like a dream that you can't quite remember, but you have a vague idea of what it was about. You want back, but can't get there. 

But now your love for your craft is stronger, you want to get to that point. 

Maybe a divine message? 

Maybe your sub-consensus showing you, teasing you with what you want to see? 

Can you get to that, make it real, you worry? 

Well, ask yourself this question. 

How bad do you want it? 

Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever seen that brief glimpse of success, or at a point you wish you were? 

Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter @WCMarchese.

Hope to see you there.
