The best piece of writing I've ever done has stemmed from emotional heartbreak. However, since then, said woman has returned to me. Do I add a coda and risk ruining the integrity of the original piece, or leave it and pretend like I didn't end up winning in the long run? - Jimmy M.
Your piece wasn't done to begin with - art never is. If she returned to you, it is only so more heartbreak and struggle emerges to heighten your artistic sensibilities. Embrace the pain and how easy it is to numb it with Jack Daniel's. I'll be at the bar - meet you there.
