I watch one sports team–the Phoenix Suns. I’ve been watching for as long as I can remember. They also have never won a championship. Last season they came within two games of winning it all.
Here’s the thing: You can’t rush the experience. I didn’t sign up to watch a team that has a long history of winning titles. I signed up for a novel, not a short story.
There’s a metaphor here:
Are you rushing to get things done or are you trying to get to the good part?
Are you trying to ease the tension or increase it?
