Scott Ware

A great piece. Well written. I especially love "...a curiosity that transcends terror to the silence on the line."

Thank you, Scott.

I suggest you hang up the phone and hurry to the airport before your other you takes off.

I have a question: Why was the You Who Writes (which is who I think you called) holed up in a hotel? And with a woman?

mernitman

Bob: I think he's still at the hotel.

JLM: Traditionally one holes up there to write... and that must be his muse. Or the fascistic guard who's not letting him do it...

I'll bet the "other" me ended-up totally stiffing "original" me on the restaurant tab, and the tip.

This is fantastic, Billy.

I've written a scene in my new script where my character chats with his future corpse self who refers to them together as, "we."

Provocative post, Billy. I was contemplating something I read, -- that identity is what you focus your attention on. And when I think about the difference between you and me, or me and me, at any given moment, it's that. If that's the case, then me is really a verb when I'm looking for a noun. Authenticity is a situational moving target and I really wanted it to be so much more, something I could attain and be proud of. The think the advice you want to give to yourself, "give it up , let it go" is wise.

Bradford: That sounds like quite a conversation.

Martha: "Me is really a verb when I'm looking for a noun"...! C'est magnifique.
