Puzzle Solving

The writing work I'm doing these days is like working on a challenging puzzle.

A lot of the puzzle pieces have already been put into place, but they're not necessarily in the the right place.

I am discovering a lot of pieces that don't fit and taking them out, while I am simultaneously working hard to fit new pieces in with the structure that's been built.

And I'm doing all this without knowing what the completed puzzle looks like. I have to work from instinct - there is no photo on the box to guide me.
