Last night I met with a book group (our first meeting) and participated in a lively discussion about the novel we read. Afterwards, as I walked with one of the ladies to my car, the topic finally came up--a topic that inevitably arises whenever book lovers learn I'm a screenwriter. "I hate what filmmakers do to my favorite books!"
I wanted to laugh…maniacally. (Which, by the way, I have a difficult time pronouncing… I want to say mane-ee-ack-ah-lee.) Mwahahahahahaha!!
