I actually did write this book halfway through and then I got completely stuck and I was going to throw it out. I thought, I can't finish it, I don't know where it's going, I got completely lost, I don't know how to end it. And then about eight months later, I woke up from a dream and I went, eureka! I know what the plot problem is!
