jrtomlin – 2008-05-27 5:56 PM I do have a deadline. Fortunately it’s still a couple of weeks off. It’s a good thing! I see what’s not working. What I don’t see is how to fix it. Blech. There is a thread down further about how easy writing is. LOL
A writer friend of mine says that writing is the easiest thing he’s ever done. It’s writing well that he finds almost impossible. He has a point. So did whoever said, “Easy writing makes for hard reading.”
As for the short story that isn’t working, I think we all have those. I’ve found the answer sometimes pops into my head a week, a month, or six months later, usually when I’m not even thinking about the story, and almost always after I’ve submitted the non-working version somewhere. Sigh.
