Wednesday’s word of the day, from Wordsmith.org:
obdurate. adjective. 1.Stubborn: not easily moved. 2.Hard-hearted: resistant to emotions.
That reminds me of my recent experience in rewrite mania.
The body of a woman, her hands covered in what appeared to be red ink (lab results pending), was found slumped over a pile of papers and an open laptop. She was mumbling the numbers “eleven ninety-eight” repeatedly when police woke her. During questioning, the woman reported hacking scenes and chopping characters and “whittling, whittling, whittling.” She has since been taken to the Medical Center for observation, where she continues to plead for her laptop and a “juicy red pen!”
More details to follow.
