I’ve been re-reading “IT” again, now that I’ve seen the new movie, and my new perspective as one who writes fiction brought a hard truth to light…I can’t use drains or sewers in any of my work now.
I mean, think about it. What can be said about a sewer or a drain that Stephen King hasn’t already said with far greater skill than I can bring to the party?
Well…at least I still have a workbench and hand tools…
“Catherine was unable to feel the hard wooden workbench that William roughly dropped her on in the basement, unable to see him pick up the hacksaw, but when he began sawing through her shoulder to remove her arm, the pain flared brightly, despite her inability to do anything but lie still.”
Yeah…I still have those…(but a sewer would be nice too)
