No idea where it would go

[Ian] McEwan was halfway through the story of Michael Beard [Solar] and still had no idea where it would go. Aspiring writers, take note: Even novelists with 13 titles under their belts and shelves full of shiny trophies sometimes flail in the depths. Writing each book, McEwan says, is “like learning to swim all over again.”
