This is different. And good.
Thanks, Andy. It felt very different writing but it just came out of me this afternoon. Kind of imagined the scene in my head and instead of the normal short story writing I figured a dialogue worked much better.
Yes it is good to mix your writing up. Try different styles and forms.
Yes, I believe you’ve told me that before and I always keep it in mind. Wise words 🙂
Have I? I only remember ‘liminal’ 🙂 At least one of us is taking notice!
It feels like a script… Set in a smoky hotel bar, maybe. Or an excerpt from a Capote novel. Good to see you branching out.
You’re making me blush with the Capote reference.
Shall we make a movie?
I’m up for that-something arty. Or gritty. Not dodgy-best leave your friend with the nude males book out of it 🙂
Well noted. More for an arty concept as well. Any preferences regarding actors?
Well if we need a hero-type, it would have to be someone handsome, great presence, good physique. I’m willing to play the part myself. What you laughing at? This isn’t a comedy. What?
And the Oscar goes to…[drum roll] Mr. Jackdaw!
I can feel it.
Working on my acceptance speech now. For a guy with Tourette’s, this could be difficult.
A classical “wohoo, I knew it” while excitingly throwing the Oscar statuette in the air will do just fine.

Thank you, Izza!
Have you ever read something feeling like you missed the most important part of the work: the meaning? Yes, you enjoyed, escaped, and indulged in the writing but somehow couldn’t grasp that underlying pivotal thing… That’s how I feel. Or maybe that’s the point. When your lost in dialogue?
Perhaps, I just need some shut eye. Another great way to end my day – thanks for sharing. 🙂
Read it again when sleep has given you some rest. You might find it lurking behind the phrases. I do understand what you mean though. Maybe it’s because it’s quite a short dialogue and so you have to imagine almost everything about the characters on your own. Appreciate your thoughts deeply, as always.
