Day Fourteen, Valentine's Day, I did jack squat for word count because I was re-writing a story and broke no new ground. I may re-write the whole thing including the title.
The Noble Serpent- 270 words
I did manage to get out and see the movie Taken. It's a solid if a little by-the-numbers action movie about a spyguy trying to get his kid back from the thugs that have kidnapped her. I went to see the thing with a buddy of mine who went to film school and we argued about the best starting point for the movie. Like most film people, he argued for starting the movie as late in the story as possible. I argued that all of the character bits at the beginning of the movie which could essentially get dropped were probably there because of studio notes. Either way, its good stuff.
Did I read that right? If I can crack out 10K words a day, I can score bonus points?
