Bud's Story, Chapters 11 to 16, The Rewrite. Why not start
in the middle...
Bored and unable to accomplish
anything necessary I began to re-write something I never should
have written in the first place. I had many other things I
should have been doing and was told as much by my business
partner, Allison. “You better start working on our taxes!”
and also “When are you going to move the books out of
the warehouse and into the new storage unit.” Two weeks
later, neither of these things are done, and despite the advice
of my family and friends, I’m thinking of rewriting
other chapters. After I take a nap.
Among the changes are the
font, colors and format on the Bud's Story webpage. It will
have a younger and hipper look - Imagine a middle aged balding
man in a candy red convertible. I will also make a few spelling
and capitalization changes, but not too many. Because of pressure
from an unnamed advocacy group (Allison) I’ve eliminated
the character Snoopy, The Curious Midget Dog. Also for legal
reasons my lawyer advised me to change Tina Brown’s
name to a fictitious name. To which I acquiesced and changed
her name to the fictitious name of Tina Brown (chosen randomly
from the thirteen listed Tina Browns in our local phone book).
I have also rewritten large portions of the text, actually,
almost everything, to demonstrate the skill and insight I’ve
gained over the passage of several years, several more trips
to the ER, plus a few minutes of self-reflection. Enjoy.
