Can't land it

I'm not much of a fisherman, but I like the analogy of landing the big one. The last few weeks I've been editing a video for a large meeting with all the powers-that-be. But this program refuses to land. I've spent days trying to get the opening just right, and think I finally got it this morning after about a dozen revisions. That means I have 11 more minutes to finish, which doesn't sound like much, but it is. One of the most frustrating projects I've struggled with lately.

The key seems to be just to put something down and keep at it. Kind of like writing. It's the rewriting that makes it good.
