"Every single morning for the past few weeks I've had to break a cobweb to get through my writing room doors," she wrote.

"I have so many questions. Is it the same spider? Why is it never there when I turn up? Has it not noticed that webs woven between these handles never survive? Does it, on some subconscious level, seek failure? Or is it sending a message about persistence in the face of overwhelming odds? Every morning, I sit down thinking about the web I've just broken. That is the spider's bleak victory."

Last month, she shared this photo of a massive spider that she had to get her husband to trap under a glass
