My two weeks in the Writers’ Room for FlashForward, the ABC TV series based on my novel of the same name, came to an end this afternoon — and the writers and their staff very, very kindly made a cake in honor of my visit. The cake says, “He who sees story breaking suffers it twice over,” a play on the opening epigram from my novel (quoted by D. Gibbons in our second episode), “He who foresees calamities suffers them twice over.”

(“Story breaking” is what happens in the writers’ room: all the writers sit around and suggest, moment by moment, how the current script might progress.)

I’ve had an absolutely amazing time here. The staff writers are all incredibly talented, and the writing-office staff are all super, too.
