One [common feature of beauty] is what I call exuberance or productivity, where you get out more than you put in. You find some equation or law by putting together clues and making a guess, and then you can explain seven other things and you know you’re on the right track. You get out more than you put in.

  1. I like the word exuberance with beauty and productivity, and also the concept of adding in a dash of ‘making a guess’ because when in the throes of writing a scene, that’s what it feels like…exuberantly making a guess!
