We all have to start somewhere, so never fail to keep trying. I think I'm still at the level of a moderately complicated jigsaw, but I keep trying as well. I disagree, however, that the greatest stories have pristine and completely solved jigsaw puzzles. Faulkner, for example, excelled at broken jigsaws while offering the reader more than enough pieces to glean the big picture. His ability to creatively paint such a broken portrait, however, still allowed him to be recognized as a shaker of American literature. We all seek to be better.
By the way, it would help if you also left a comment at my recent write-up. :) Thanks.
