This is really beginning to irritate me. I’ve got the rough re-plot of 2 BEAT SIDEWAYS done. I know the character arcs, I’m happy with the pacing and all the remains to do is write the pitch. I just can’t seem to get it to hang right. There’s no punch to the opening, and I can’t hit the right notes – I think I’m going to have to cut a key element out. It’s too big to make it just one part of a larger story, and trying to play it down just doesn’t sit right. But if I lose it, the first couple of issues fall over and die. Shit.
Tonight I shall hit my brain with coffee and whiskey, and see where it gets me.
