Excerpt: The filmmaker Federico Fellini wrote scripts planning to have some famous actors play the leads. Many times, he could not get them.

With some projects, you can go ahead with different actors, but with others, you have to abandon them. Here are a few of the ideas that I’ve had to abandon.

If you know of anyone who might find this article interesting, please pass this along to them.

I am working on another couple of stories now and will be posting them as soon as they are done. One is a fable set in the distant past and the other is a humorous piece drawing from my experiences in transportation planning.

Please have a look at one of my old stories: “The Parasol”.
