When I was younger, I loved adapting stories I’d read into radio plays or short films or long monologues, but the results just grew old in a drawer, because there was always the spectre that these projects were based on someone else’s original work and there would certainly be much ceasing and desisting and legal threats. These days especially, everyone seems to be circling the wagons with the things they create, demanding payment and putting up No Trespassing signs around every word, every idea.
