Cut it out

I spent most of today in a video edit session. It strikes me that I can apply it to writing:

"Cut that, it doesn't move the piece forward."
"Cut that, it doesn't work with this."
"Cut that, it's too slow."
"Cut that, it's boring."

Et cetera.

It wore me out. That applies, too.

Saw you at Miss Snark and just thought I'd stop by to say hi.

It's nice to see a blog even newer than mine (3 weeks). I know how hard it is to get going when there's hardly anyone out there yet.

(Although you sound like you may have actual friends and a built in readership from the e-zine, so that should help).

And that dog is awfully damn cute. I'd come back for the dog alone.
