If you can't solve a problem, enlarge it,?Dwight Eisenhower is supposed to have said; and he might have, it sounds like good military strategy.
Writers enlarge problems all the time; the enlargement of a problem is a writers specialty; the smaller the problem the better the possibilities are for literary enlargement.
I read the news this morning on my laptop. Two good things happened: 1) an ex-football player turned announcer resigned from broadcasting football on ESPN, protesting the violence in the sport and 2) a writer named Terry Pratchett requested that all his unpublished manuscripts be steamrolled upon his death. His request was honored.
