bald man jacket

currently writing in the land of Ugh

I've joined up with thing_in_150, a group of VPers who are committing to write 500 words a day. Given that I'm on a "short story every two weeks" pace, this works just fine with my pace.

I'm currently working on "Real Enuf 4 U" and, while I'm hitting the pace, I'm not happy with the result. I was also trying out some VP learnings about physical detail and deepening the character bowl. Alas, I feel like I'm just slogging through it and throwing words on the page without them having any real power to them.

At this point, I'm thinking I'll just get through it and "fix it in post" (as the movie people say). Of course, we all know how deadly a statement "fix it in post" is.

We'll see how it goes.
