You guys are awesome.  

Yesterday’s short story meme has hit upon the following:

- at least 5 stories I’d actually like to write
- something startlingly close to the plot of an upcoming book
- one story I’ll never write, but probably it’s not the one you think it is
- the observation that none of you pay attention to the structure of a Walker Papers title, and
- a clear predilection amongst my readers to see Morrison in leather pants

Later I’ll post a few responses. :)

I did try, actually. But the good title I came up with delivered a sad plot and vice versa. I went with the better plot.

Morrison, leather pants - BOO YAH! On the cover please, and a manly man not a boy as model (I know, not that you get a lot of choice). He could be in leather pants in mine. Or a loincloth (not sure what native peoples in North Carolina wore, actually)!

Now I'm curious about the good title!

Look, I know who *I'd* put in leather pants to play Morrison (except for the part where my brain cramps at Morrison in leather pants), and I promise he's not boyish. :)

I've been sort of scratching my head at the Morrison in leather meme. Must be somebody other than 'my' Morrison =)

Yeah, no, the idea just really doesn't work for me. Ted suggested perhaps he's a closet AC/DC fan, but I still can't imagine him getting up in leather pants. :)

Also, to be forthcoming, I don't have a Morrison hangup. My pitch was entirely about getting a chuckle, and leather pants seemed terribly anti-Morrison in a chuckle-worthy way. :)

Actually, given that it was you who suggested it, I didn't think it was very serious. I was just highly amused at everybody else going 'yeah!' ;)

(I can just see Morrison standing there in his slacks and button-down, staring at a pair of leather pants just sort of like, "...what could you possibly want me to do with these?")

Plleeeeeaaaaassssse share Morrison???????

Now a younger George Peppard....

One was Indian Summer, set in India. And there was another clever one...?

*goes & looks up George Peppard* Not a bad choice!

I'm kinda reluctant to tell people my idea of Morrison, because I don't want to override their idea of him. Nobody, in their proposals for casting him, has ever come anywhere close to the guy/type I would cast. :)
