L.H.: I'd have expected nothing less!

David: Cool. Did you do the 'What classic movie are you" test? How's the NaNoWriMo challenge going?

Didn't do the classic movie test... Maybe I'll try that one later. The Novel challenge went well... I only made it to the halfway mark but what i have is pretty solid and I may actually try to get it published some day.

Have you seen the excerpts? I'd be curious to hear what you think...if you don't mind me askin'

Been meaning to ask -- what's New Zealand like?

There are some great ideas in your script. I like the description of the dream. I must admit, I thought that the 'Clackclackclickityclackclack' referred to a train at first but I got it eventually.

There is plenty of character history introduced quite quickly which helps build and establish the character in the mind, while giving possible contexts for events in the unfolding story.

I really get a sense of the gritty, hardened-but-vulnerable Bouncer, and his thought patterns.

I have heard it explained that a writer should 'show, not tell', and that's exactly what you've done. Pretty darn good for the length of time you had to write it - well done!

Ah, thank you thank you... That's very encouraging! So much so, that I'm going to copy and paste your critique into the "Bouncer Excerpt" comment section... hope that's OK...

Chatatcha later!

Hey! Happy New Year to you too.

Yes, point taken. I have been suffering from an acute case of procrastinitis lately.

I challenge myself to post by the end of today - how's that? :)
