Story Mechanics

Alex Epstein has a great post today about story notes and the difference between getting them from readers and getting them from writers. Either it's a really good post or my history of restoring vintage Mustangs has skewed my opinion of his analogy.

Okay, technically - I restored a 1964 1/2 with a 289 but didn't do much restoring on the 1966 with the 289. Also owned a 1970 mostly restored with a modified 289 made to appear to be a 302 because it was meant to look and run like a Mach 1 but it wasn't.

I had a 67 Cougar with the 289, yellow with light blue interior (I didn't paint it)

Remind me never to get Maryan to give me notes on my scripts that involve classic muscle cars:) ouch.

Who is going to be the first in the world to do a chop top on a Prius? What would you call such a beast?
