Prolific novelist to stick spray into stuffed nose (5,9)
I believe the answer is:
'prolific novelist' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't judge whether it can be defined by this definition.
'stick spray into stuffed nose' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but
'stick' could be 'jam' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'jam' is found within the answer.
'spray' could be 'spatter' (I've seen this before) and 'spatter' is present in the answer.
an anagram of 'nose' is 'eson' which is within the remaining letters.
This accounts for all the letters.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).
'to' is the link.
Can you help me to learn more?
