I met a writer once, an exuberant, lovely woman, who described to me her “genius dance.” Whenever that moment came, that moment when she realized she’d gotten something exactly, precisely right, she rose from her chair and twirled around, yelling: “Geeenuis! Geeenius! Thank you, God!” I do that now. Really. It amuses me to no end.
