Every thousand words, I take a break and watch something. Today, I’m watching You’ve Got Mail. (The first time I saw it was in the theater where Meg Ryan and Greg Kinnear go to the movies in the film.) I did not remember how sad this movie is! Even the happy ending is sad! I need to go back to watching Escape to the Country—despite the possibility that my books might all wind up being set in character cottages with thatched roofs, wood burners, and heroes that bear a striking resemblance to Alistair Appleton (not a bad thing, mind you).
