Fallehuckinglujah is my comment on the power of words; it's a bastardization of Hallef***inglujah, which I am wont to say in moments of joy but cannot because of the f*** part.

I’m at the point in my script where I need to do some major work and I keep coming back to the same thing: I need to keep it simple. I feel the need to add texture and detail but keep pulling back. It’s complicated as it is: basically a three-character show, and lots of time travel. Fun travel and sick travel and I need to stay focussed on where this goes and not get over my head. I have enough to do just keeping it my head, more or less. Right now, I can tell you where in the story every concept fits but just because I can doesn’t mean I should expect the partaker of this joy to be able to. Clean, straight, no subplots. I think I have enough meat with what I have now; I just need to work with it. It’s been more or less complete for weeks now, just nibbling away at it, often cutting huge swathes from it but always a better story.
But it needs work and I don’t know if I’m up to it. Do I seek simplicity because I doubt my talents? Everyone I’ve ever read says to just keep writing, so I keep writing.
