    ... Instant Novel!

    The exercise is about sitting down and writing.

      More than the names would have to be changed.

      It's curious how I think of writing in terms of "the novel" (The Great American Novel-- because there can be only one) instead of just writing things down, such as brief histories or biographies, or essays on favorite movies and musicians.  I don't have a Pale Fire or Doting (Henry Green) in me so I should just face facts, unless I get a kick out of being mediocre as an author.
