As an experiment in writing, I wrote one line of a conversation I pretended to have between two fictional characters that isn’t actually in a story. I just wanted to use it at some point in the future. Then I did the editing. But as a twist, I did not actually delete the original line I wrote. Instead, I wrote and rewrote the line until I was happy (for relative values of “happy”) with the finished sentence.

What are you waiting for? What do you expect to happen? Do you expect a vision of loveliness to descend to earth, supported by angelic choirs? The only love we are ever going to get is from another human being. And that one loves you.
So, in the end, you can’t sit around waiting for a vision of loveliness to descend to earth, supported by her angelic choirs. The only love you are going to get is from another human being, you’ll have to settle for that.
So in the end, we cannot sit around and wait for deities to descend from the celestial reaches, supported by angelic choirs, come down from heaven to grace us with their perfect, unblemished love. The only love we are going to get is from another human being.
And that one loves you.
You could have settled for that.
You walked away.
a. Do you know what kind of miracle it takes for us even to be together?
(a.) is more of a throwaway bonus sentence, but I liked it so I wrote it down.
