Writing a story is akin to weaving a quilt that provides maximum comfort to your audience. Each idea, a cotton boll, is picked and placed in a basket. The cotton is spun into thread. Thousands of threads are then woven into sheets: large collections of coherent ideas to be cut into bits. After arranging the bits, you have to sew it into a story, and fluff it with cotton to retain heat, the function of the quilt. Done well, an audience may be sitting at home, warm, enjoying your creation.
