Yes, we’ve been here before and we’ll be here again. With notes on Salieri and Empty Rooms.
You know, I work hard at this writing thing. I’ll take a paragraph and re-do it and re-do it and pump my fist in the air (well, internally anyhow) when I find a way to take out three words and a comma, because less is more.
Remember the scene in Amadeus when Salieri was chicken-scratching away at this piece of music and finally moved it along a bit and Gave Thanks To God right there & then? That’s how I feel.
Playing Mozart’s role would be Paul Ford, as in Empty Rooms. Read it and weep. That’s not a figure of speech.
