Worked a smidgeon on the film script today. It's just about the right length and nearly everything's in it that I want it. Maybe another 10 pages and some scene-shifting and I'll have my first film script all done!

Finished Winesburg, Ohio. The stories are very simple, but resonant with someone who went on long, raging walks whenever I felt too much under the world and not sufficiently of it. I think I read that Hemingway was influenced by Mr. Anderson, and it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. However, I feel I would have loathed this book in high school, much like I couldn't take Willa Cather. Perhaps O, Pioneers! and My Antonia (which did I read?--can't recall) are more supportable as I approach my quarter-century mark.

In summing up, I wish I had some kind of affirmative message to leave you with. I don't. Would you take two negative messages?
