Good stories are not always the obvious ones.

I've seen Gladiator probably fifty times or more, and I still become emotionally involved. I can even recite large chunks of the dialogue, but I still root for Maximus, I still argh at the screen when he turns down Marcus Aurelius' offer to lead Rome back to the Republic, and Commodus still makes me twitch.

That is the sign of a good story.

I'm writing.

    How is everyone?
