The editors have worked down Rita’s accounts. Sitting in a coffee shop, the author searches hard for a plot that would end her struggle.
“I can build you a great plot for a coffee!” A tall, skinny guy smiles at Rita.
She buys him a coffee, he drinks quietly, then gets up to exit. She stares at him, surprised.
“Watch out for what people need and desire! That sells.” He grins and moves his coffee cup up to his mouth.
Rita stares at him fading in the busy street, something was adrift in her head. A plot!
