I actually confused this movie (what, who, me?!?) —

Okay, at approximately 21:21 into the podcast I told a story about the difference between writing for a publisher and a studio. The recorder (thankfully?) cut out most of it. For what it’s worth, the story is: everything you write is your child. You bring your child into a book editor, you compromise, and the editor pays for lunch. You bring your child to a studio exec, they rip its head off, dump its guts on the floor, and say “There…isn’t that better?”

Finally, the recorder might have eaten my regular sign-off too. So…
USE YOUR BLINKERS, JACKASS (chew your food, Ric)!!!!
