I just typed a king-hell observation/comment worthy of the Nobel Prize and because of the convoluted log-in system these brainiacs have devised I lost my page. I won’t bore you trying to recreate it but I will tell you it was about Ernest Hemingway and the expatriate literary community in Paris during the twenties. Has anyone read Jonathan Franzen? I especially liked The Corrections but Freedom was pretty damn good too. Try some old Hammett. His style will cleanse you of common pitfalls and give you an interestingly precise dialog stream. I will keep in touch.
