Shortcuts in writing are hogwash

I need a description of an attic in an old New England estate–any takers? I’m willing to pay $100.00 for the best one.

Well, not exactly. I’m lucky if I have $25 in my bank account.Attic

But, sometimes, Lord, I trip over a moment that needs refining, and I can’t move forward until that piece is done, and done right. That means, I have to dig in, research, study images, or, even better, visit an old estate, walk up into the attic–feel, taste, touch it–only then can I write it.  Any less, is hogwash–incomplete.
