Watch me.
Watch you do what?

Weave my web, of course.
Why?

Because you still don’t get it. Watch me.
But I’ve seen it a thousand times.

Right. That’s what gets me.
All right. Go ahead.

See how I put this with that and tie it all together?

Good. So watch me. I go round and round in circles and always come back to a point. Then I wait.
Wait for what?

For things to fall into place.
What if you make mistakes?

I can’t make mistakes.
Why not?

What I weave comes from deep within. It’s perfection. So what’s your bag?
I’m a writer.

Be like me.
