1.94. A writer with an audience of millions insisted that he was never to be interrupted while writing. After the day when he actually was interrupted, he never wrote again. (JM, originally from How Come -- Again?)

1.94 answer: He was a skywriter whose plane crashed into another plane.

1.94a. Variant wording: A seated woman is writing a letter. She dies because there's a thunderstorm outside. (SP, from The Next Book of OMNI Games)

1.94a answer: Same. I really like this version; I may even replace the older puzzle statement with this one.

1.94b. Variant: A woman is in a Q when there is a flash of lightning and she dies. (SP original?)

1.94b answer: "Q" sounds like "queue," suggesting she's standing in line rather than writing the letter Q.
