It takes a while to warm up a cold cabin. You get the heat going, but it must still circulate through the rooms and warm up the air.
But then there’s the walls and the floors. If the heat doesn’t transfer to them, the place will cool down as soon as you turn it off.
Like the cabin, it sometimes takes a while to warm up our writing. To get the ideas flowing and heat up the chilly bones of the story.
However, to get there, we need to be patient. We can’t speed up the process. It will take however long—and however cold—the story requires. We must be patient and stoke the fires until the story can stand alone.
