I have to go talk to Japan in a minute. I worked on my assignment for the TV writing class, and though I'm not finished, it's getting somewhere. I still think that I should have done an episode of "CSI:" or something.

Mary and I went to pick up the materials that she needs to use by next week, then went to lunch at Steak 'N' Shake and out for coffee. Freudian slip--I left my text for the class on the table at SNS. I think I need to get out of it what I can, with the understanding that it's going to be less than perfect. And, frankly, I'm not so sure that I agree with the guy who's teaching the class, that the only way to write for television is to live in Hollywood. I have learned quite a bit about storywriting, though...maybe the most important thing is that I've learned that I can't just let my characters wander around aimlessly until I'm ready to screw with their lives. Whatever.

Anyway, need to make a quick trip to the john and get myself into teacher mode. Talk to you all later.
