Masterful use of the simile, I give it a 9.8

ursulav on her writing process:
    I don't know how other people do it, but for me, writing is kind of like being a surgeon. You yell "Character!" or "Conflict!" or whatever and stick out your hand and something--the brain or the Muse or whatever--grabs something from the tray and slaps it into your hand, and you shove it into the gaping incision you've made in the page. Sometimes it's exactly what you need, and then again, sometimes you find you're trying to perform surgery with a rubber duck with a prolapsed squeaker. (Probably there's a story somewhere where exactly what you need is, indeed, a prolapsed rubber duck...)
