The Masters Degree is next: Or the Magnum Opus. Question to self: Author or Academic?
Robert De Niro was recently in a movie with me. It’s called The Killer Elite, loosely based on the book by Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Most of my scenes are now, thankfully, on the cutting room floor. Here’s what remains (I’m the one with the blonde hair).
The cake was a beautiful surprise; a replica of a vintage Smith Corona typewriter I recently bought out of pure nostalgia for the days when writers went click click clack clackety clack. It had rice paper scattered around it with sections from Blackout written upon said rice paper. Thus rendering me able to eat my own words.
