Back to the Beginning

Inigo: I am waiting for you, Vizzini. You told me to go back to the beginning. So I have. This is where I am, and this is where I'll stay. I will not be moved.

Brute: Ho there.

Inigo: I do not budge. Keep your "Ho there."
(He waves his sword dangerously)

Assistant Brute:But the Prince gave orders --

Inigo: So did Vizzini -- when a job went wrong, you went back to the beginning. And this is where we got the job. So it's the beginning, and I'm staying till Vizzini comes.

I am going back to the beginning of my manuscript and waiting for Vizzini to come.

Wait, he's dead. I hope Fezzik can help me. I'm willing to have my head dumped into a big vat of cold water so I can wake up and figure out a plan.

Good Luck with your MS

I think I need my head dunked in a big vat of water too. I need some guidance and maybe that would show me the way nicely. ;)

You are so funny! :)

You'll figure it out. I'm back at the beginning of mine today too.

I love this movie.
I hope you find something better than Vizzini there!

Awesome movie!

You can do it Patti! I am going back to the beginning of my suspense humor this summer. I just have to let it sit for a while.
=)

I *love* this post. Princess Bride references, commiserations over the difficulties of beginnings, what's not to like? Thanks for brightening my day!

Well....at least you don't have to worry about Inigo attacking you...I'm assuming you don't have six fingers, though...

:) Good luck!

LOL, very cute!

Best to you, Patti.

The Princess Bride is so much fun, and there is so much one can draw from it. In revisions, I draw my sword and cut, cut, cut! And hope Wes will still be standing in the end, waiting for a kiss.

A plan is waiting for you, as you wish, I am sure! Fun post!

Dara said...

LOL!

You'll find something better than Vizzini's plans.

Elana Johnson said...

Dude, I feel this. Good luck at the beginning? I hope the plan is formulating right now.

Love the Princess Bride reference. I'm working on revisions now too, so good luck.
