* * Interview Hartwell on Gotham.
Q. It once was that every sf writer who hoped to make it had to move to NYC . . .
[I have no idea why I fixated on that particular question; perhaps it was for my "Singular Interviews" series. Or maybe background for some future NYC novel?]
"Trust me, darling," she [something something] on the [something]. "I've got bigger fish to fry."
"Tried to stuff an [something] up her snatch."
"She did not."

. . .

Again, no idea what those two items were for. They sound like I was working on a story, though. The speakers are definitely female. Don't ask me why I should remember that but not what they were talking about.
Finally, an entry from my dream diary. This may be fictional, but I think not. It sounds like one of my dreams:
I dreamed that Darger and Surplus came to me and offered to tell me the plot of the novel in exchange for a perfectly reasonable cut of the advance. I awoke with no memory of what they told me and an empty wallet.
