Sunday, October 21, 2007the other day. Here's what an empty head, a full notebook and a looming deadline will get you.
It's funny. I was talking to a friend of mine about this story shortly after I filed it. We pass our stories back and forth every so often and critique one another's work. I was a little underwhelmed at the story. I wrote it quickly and thought it wasn't that good. He loved it. Well, he thought it was good and told a good story. Said maybe I was too close to the story (which, clearly had given me a hard time) to really appreciate it.
A full weekend later, I think he's right. It didn't turn out so badly.
