You’ve probably heard of zen koans. They are those questions without rational answers – questions such as “what is the sound of one hand clapping?” Buddhist monks ask these questions of novices and any novice silly enough to try to come up with a rational answer is generally whacked with a bamboo stick. Such is the route to enlightenment, or so I hear.

 

There are certainly times during writing when it feels that you are being whacked with a bamboo stick. If you’re very lucky, there are also moments when writing comes close to enlightenment, when a certain phrase just clicks or when you discover some great new insight. It’s what makes writers keep writing, despite the stings of rejections and writer’s block. I hope this year you have more peace and fewer stings.
