Once, I had an idea for a movie. About this restaurant. And I wrote and I wrote. And rewrote and rewrote. But no matter how hard I tried, the movie still sucked. And I tried very hard. Three major rewrites.
Years later, I finally thought I had tossed the monkey from my back — but there was this one bit about a dishwasher that I just couldn’t let go. Turned out to be a pretty entertaining short story.
