Text message from 12 year-old self to 2021 self at age 48: You get to watch movies all the time and just write about them and get paid for it? And even be friendly with some of the people who make them? Very cool. Plus you avoided alcoholism and escaped the high-pressure suburban commuter lifestyle that your father grappled with during his advertising career. And you built your own business that allows you to work from home and visit Europe and Asia and hit Telluride once a year? Double cool. On top of which, thank God, you didn’t have to suffer through the trauma of blacklisting that befell so many screenwriters in the ’50s…wait, what’s wokelisting? Never heard of that. Can you fill me in?
