Lack.

You know what one thing I would like to see more of in my own writing and suspect I never will? Explosions. Great, big, boomy explosions. Possibly fireballs, but not the, "I cast Fireball +8!" kind. The kind that come off of wreckage rather than causing wreckage. Well, they cause it, too, but are not the first thing in the causal sequence.

I don't want more explosions every day. Just today.

I mean, I could deliberately write a story to get explosions, but it'd be one out of many, and if I didn't continue putting energy into the system, it would fall back to the ground state, which for me seems to not include explosions, although for some people it probably would. Perhaps it'd emit coherent photons along the way, though. That might be worth it, if it would. But I'm skeptical.

This is probably indicative of how I'm doing today, if you need some kind of Mrissish indicator. So if you can, please give me either something you want more of in fiction (yours or other people's) or else something good today.

timprov already pointed out the joyful puppy leaping through the leaves in the backyard, so that's something good for sure.
