After publishing three little books, three time capsules of forever genius, books that were little because like a grain of sand dropped into a sea they made no splash, he went to Hollywood, a place where they pay you to write or not to write or to rewrite or to renotwrite. A good job for a family man.

A bad job for an artist, for a forever maker. Tsk tsk. Karoo is nearly perfect. I should have five more Karoos, ten more Karoos to read. Nearly perfect. The last chapter? The last ten pages of the book? What you see is the apex, the money shot, the big reveal before the fade to black?

Cut it. End with the words, And so he began. And though there are many, many, many brilliant lines and one-liners and turns of phrases, occasionally there are the lazy throways. These just sully the picture, like soot on a window pane. Lose them. The first chapter? Lose that one, too. Tear it out and tear it up. Make it disappear. Maybe he left something cooking in there.
