Looking forward to interacting with all you like minded souls. Now go write something! "The artist... needs to be free. On the other hand, if there is no form to his painting, the artist loses all communication with the viewers. The form makes it possible for the artist to have freedom plus communication." - Francis Schaeffer

    Thanks for the comments on the Orme Op. Yes, it's a long one -- perhaps if I had my druthers it might be the basis for a miniseries. But I agree that as it stands it's too long. Glad you enjoyed the dialogue.

    Hey Sean, thanks for the review of The Devilís Servant. Very helpful.

    Your concerns for Mike - I was trying to go for the most depressed I could get him, without it being too in your face. I had a scene where he writes a suicide note stating heíll win the fight for Marc, and that he plans on killing himself, yada yada yada.

    And itís funny you brought up Mikeís dialogue with randy. ďhi, Randy, no not quite yet.Ē But originally it had meaning Ė as in ď soon though, because Iíll be deadĒ.

    After the fights, he goes to the bar for a final beer. Itís why he has the handgun. But then he ultimately kills Rich, and things spiral out of control. I had Marc find the note in Mikeís apartment and it be the final push to get him to cut his wings off.

    I cut it because I didnít think it was needed, and I wasnít a hundred percent sure Mike was the type of character to commit suicide. I think of him as the guy who holds everything back, doesnít let anything show through, wont back down. And the Wild as the complete opposite, says everything, even talks to himself, runs when the going gets tough.

    No oneís pointed out that mike and Wild donít meet up after their first acquaintance, where Mike kills him. So I take it that i was able to keep everyoneís attention away from that fact with enough other plots going on. And then their meeting in the sequel can have a bigger impact.

    I have no excuses for the spelling errors, only that Iím fairly new to writing and iím taking my sweet time to improve. But if you say the pros do twenty, Iím thinking my forth draft is looking not too shabby.

    Anyway, thanks again. Iíll be sure to keep an eye out for your work.

    Blake.
