I don't watch much t.v. - both because it's rarely my choice, and because who has the time when one tries to write on top of having a young family? But last night I watched a couple mindless, entertaining shows with some friends. Through the course of dozens of commercial breaks, we saw lots of movie previews.
One in particular, Last Chance Harvey, with Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, struck my fancy. Something in that one-minute clip spoke to me and said, That looks like a really good story.
And it kinda made sense in a new way, this writing of mine.
I want to be the one behind the story. I want to be the one who makes someone say Wow, that's gonna be good. Or Wow, that was so good.
You know what I mean?
