Some time ago I had an idea for a screenplay

floating around in my head. I’ve written novels,

but this was a different approach.

You can take classes on how to write them.

And pay for it.

            I came up with what I thought for me was a better idea.

I bought several published screenplays at Staples, read them through

how many times (?) and made notes learning how it was done.

Writer’s comment: I have worked on several screenplays, one

having been picked up. And this with two main characters who are women

lawyers. Here’s the gist of it:

                                           WYATT VS WYATT.

Several years ago Martha Wyatt gave up practicing law to

raise a family. Today she’s back in court to face someone

as tough as she is compassionate. Her daughter!

What’s above needs more than one exclamation mark.

There should be many (!!!!!) of them. The truth is I seldom                                                                                                         

if ever throw anything out.

It’s a bad habit that began when I was a kid keeping

small, stuffed animals.

            Sweaters came along when as an adult I discovered  

those made from 100 percent pure, soft cashmere. They’re

comfortable and never ever lose their shape and look

like new.                                                                                                                                                       

Author’s comment: It’s gone beyond me, collecting sweaters.

Take my desk. How I find anything on it is a miracle. I’d give

anything to start over with a clean slate. A clean desk. Knowing

that will never happen.
