Brian and I just got back from seeing the movie Word Play. It was a great way to spend a hot and sultry Saturday night. My favorite part was seeing one of the puzzle makers do his thing. It was amazing to watch as he made the words fit into such specific spaces and layouts. It reminded me of the importance of finding exactly the right word, the right phrase. Though it can be frustrating to think of how long it takes to craft an individual paragraph when you think about all the rewriting that goes on. But if it takes the puzzle maker 10 hours to make a puzzle with 100 words, why wouldn't it take months and months to write a short story?
