Do not pity the dead, Harry, pity the living. Above all, pity those who live without love. By returning you may ensure that fewer souls are maimed and fewer families are torn apart. If that seems to you a worthy goal, then we say goodbye for the present.
Morning in Prague by Markus Grunau
You write a novel.
Everyone loves the novel.
Someone makes a movie based off your novel.
Your favorite actor is cast in the movie based on your novel.
You become best friends with said actor.
It can’t happen if you don’t sit your ass down and write your novel.
