YMMV / Robert Kanigher

Go To

  • Money, Dear Boy: In later years, Kanigher was generally proud of the fact that he wrote because it earned him a living, rather than for the art, though on the way he definitely wrote some genuinely groundbreaking stories.
  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: Kanigher generally just sat down and wrote, without plotting or planning. He famously wrote a nine-page story in his lunch hour once, because the inker had mistaken a note saying "Drop an inch" for part of the design and inked the cover using that as the title. So Kanigher wrote "Drop An Inch" to fit the cover. More details, and the story, here.

How well does it match the trope?
