This week I had a feature-length film review appear in Willamette Week for the first time in awhile, for a nice documentary called My Architect. I was kind of jazzed to pick up the paper yesterday, but then when I found the review I was horrified to see that I used the word "breathtaking" twice in the introductory paragraph. Now I can't even look at the article without wanting to wretch. Without meaning to sound pretentious, I really take writing seriously and feel like each time I write a good piece, it's like sinking a sweet jump shot. But then there are those that just clank off the rim or maybe even feel like an air ball. Does a mistake like using the same adjective twice in one paragraph really invalidate the whole review? Probably not. But it's unfortunately something that'll be haunting me for awhile.
