Since one has been advised there is no Literature anymore, or even literature, only writing, one proceeds on the premise that this weblog qualifies as not-meaningless, since it is, or appears to be, a form of "writing."

How to Rock the World?
Tonight's work on the screenplay was satisfying, I rewrote a lot of pages and re-arranged the order of a number of scenes with scissors and glue, literal cut and paste at this stage; in the first draft I was just slapping a lot of ideas down and had some screwed up chronology that had to be straightened out. I think I am capable of creating an adequate screenplay, like half the people on the planet; how to move on to the category of the world-rocking screenplay, the kind of screenplay people talk about for the rest of their lives, remains elusive.
