No, I’ll be not be ready with the second draft of “Mord i Malmö” on the date set.
My internal deadline, yes, so no real harm done, only my pride.
I had, I thought, a great idea for the third act.
But it didn’t work.
I read the relevant parts of the book again. It’s from a first person point of view, and he sees things and analyzes what he see; interesting, yes, but not very visual. I needed something more of a bombastic moving visual thing to happen.
In the book the main character searches an individual’s apartment and finds a lesbian porn magazine. He becomes embarrassed, realizing how much trespassing he is really doing, but what we as viewers see is nothing more than just simply a lesbian porn magazine, and we expect this to lead somewhere. We don’t feel embarrassed because we are not the ones snooping around and we can’t know that this is what the main character feels and if we did, we would still expect this to lead somewhere.
So I have a ten minutes gap in the story. Bombastic Action, please reveal yourself.
