I wish I could just download the movie out of my head onto the page.

It is so hot this summer. I was outside for all of five minutes washing a rug (I think a cat peed on it, sigh), and by the time I came in I had to cool off under an air vent. Yesterday, Laura and I got up really early to go mow Grandpa's lawn before he got out and did it himself, and by the time we got there he was of course all ready outside weed-eating. Anyway, I did the push-mowing parts, and his push mower is not power, and by the time I got done I looked like Albert Brooks in Broadcast News, when he has to go on air for the first time.

One of the reasons I don't mind winter is that I can always throw on another sweater or something. I can't, like, take my skin off in the summer.

I think I'm going to expand the third act of Flesh and Blood. I've been thinking about it lately, and I feel like there just isn't enough fall-out between Maggie and John, that the movie is really about the revelation of what he is and it gets kinda stuck in there at the end. So I have a festival-length version that works and I don't want to trash it, but instead of cutting out all the Butcher stuff, just taking off from those last ten pages and going from there. Like, what actually happens next between them. It would need to have some action because then otherwise the climax ends up, like, two-thirds of the way through the movie and that doesn't work. But I don't want her to kill him? So IDK, I'm thinking it through.
