Not so hot.  Ugh.  The draft of Chapter One for “The White Hot Spotlight” came out as I wanted, but too dull and not very telling about my lead character.  That, however, is why we re-write and I don’t give up so easily.  It’ll work.  I jut need to spin it around from a few perspectives and it will tell me when it’s right.  That’s the funny thing.  Many times the author and his story will have a pronounced difference of opinion.  If you write, you’ll know exactly what I mean.  If you don’t, you’ll just think I’m crazy.  Either way is okay with me.

Is Pola Negri going to be in this novel?   Silly boy.  It’s about Valentino’s death.  Of course.
