I fielded a warm fuzzy from a friend who needed advice to the lovelorn type stuff. What I said made him praise my writing as well as appreciate the sentiments expressed. Of course, I could not remember what I'd written specifically, only the gist.
He offered to return it to me, but I pulled up "sent mail", so had a copy. As he talked, I skimmed.
What he got was a stream of consciousness style of writing. I discovered that I DID save it, meaning that I recognized that part of it was good, but not in a public forum -- in a story idea file.
He suggested that if I wrote that in my script, it would sell....
Is that like Vicarious Kiss and Tell? LOL
