I've shot my bolt

I finished my Leonard Cohen story this morning, but I still have more to say. TBC


I’m entering a contest and I had to write a 500-word essay as my submission. Took me longer, a little, than a blog. TBA

So I’ve shot my bolt. If I remember rightly, the image comes from a crossbow. I guess I have to check… This comes from a forum of readers and writers, with many answers. This is the one I like best:

"Sounds like a crossbow. Crossbows could only shoot once, and after that, you'd have to wind up the crossbow for several minutes before you could fire again. Also the projectile is called a crossbow bolt while guns use bullets.”

Well, and so…anon, anon.
