Stumbling on a style is both wholly accidental and wholly not. It’s accidental by the fact that you have no idea when it will happen. Today, tomorrow, in a year. It is not accidental in that it happens because you’ve followed hundreds if not thousands of tiny thoughts. Like string, you’ve followed it through tiny connections and the question what if? Followed them into cul-de-sacs and through piles of book pages and internet queries. And bit by bit both on your substrate and in your mind, this thing forms- a thing you’re almost unaware of until you look up from your current tiny thread and realize a breakthrough has happened.
