In Zuma Blitz there's such a thing as a "gap shot"...I hit them pretty rarely. I have come to realize that my own venture in publishing novels is a lot like a gap shot. I hit it with The King's Tale but missed the gap with Promises and Lies.
But the illusive gap shot goes much further than that. I find it happening with other things. When I hit the gap, life is grand. More often though, I miss it, and then I revert back to that timid girl standing in the shadows watching life pass me by.
