I did a corporate outing — my first — with a gaggle of guys and women from the adult beverage department of Walgreens (yes, Walgreens sells wine) — up to Sideways ground zero. We had a great time. I worried that it was going to be nutty, or weird, or maybe even downright surreal, but actually it turned out to be pretty tame. However, HOWEVER, the writer in me started to envision the opening of Sideways III (Chile). To wit: Miles has been reduced to corporate outings after the success of his novel and the movie that sprang from it. But he needs a change. Events will conspire to take him to Chile. That's all I have right now.
Keep checking in to "Notes on Sideways III), as I'll be continuing to give you an inside to how I work, how I ideate my stories. In this case, as I make across the length and breadth of Chile.
