The way to be interesting is to just dive into something. In the deep end, of course. If you make a bold statement without justification it can either sink or swim. If you’re still reading this, then butterfly, baby, we’re swimming here. Keep a rhythm. Kick with action and consistent imagery. The stories that drown, a flailing waste of time are either too calm, or carrying too much subcurrent. Let them know when the ending is coming so they are not left standing when the tide comes in, but have nothing less than the mystery of nature at the end of the day. For a desert rose is but a passing thing, and often should be that way.
