Last August a friend of mine, Colin Harvey, died of a sudden unexpected stroke. He was in my fiction critique group, and we spend several years bashing each other’s efforts. He made it as a novelist, with two books to his credit. I haven’t reached that. Yet.
Today, I learned that one of his stories had been filmed.
The funny thing is, this film is based on a challenge he set in the critique group, based on random overheard phrases provided by group members. Every story had to incorporate all of the phrases, intact and unedited. My phrase was about truth. It’s changed in the film, but the new line is also about truth. So, this film has my shadow in it, in a vague and indirect way.
