Angela says: I love the twist of the story...the characters are always alive on the head of the writer but not portrayed that way to the reader. Lovely twist!
Was I a sap? Let me tell ya I was. I’m not saying, never trust a woman. I’m saying, never trust a writer.
What really irks me is how Hamment used me. There I was a perfectly viable character. Pivotal! I mean, right out of the gate, I’m a minor maguffin. Miles Archer isn’t out there in the night following Casper the bloody ghost is he? No. He’s following me. I’m somebody!”
But you know, it coulda been worse. Take that cuckold, Miles Archer.
He figured he was a player. That’s how Hamment portrayed him. A guy on the make without the fixin’s.
I tried to wise him up.
We have this little lounge way back in Hamment’s brain, sort of an unused storage room that the booze rendered unusable years ago. Me, Archer and Brigid O'Shaughnessy’s imaginary sister, Corinne Wonderly...is she ever a thin character, quiet as a mouse? Anyway, we’re shooting the shit and I say at one point, “This is no game, Miles. This is life and death for some of us marginal characters. Take me. I don’t even appear in the damn movie.”
And he says, “Hold your horses, Floyd. At least you didn’t get plugged by a woman.”
And I blast back with,” What about that two-timing wife of yours, Iva?”
I can see I’ve cut him to the quick.
It feels crappy.
We lesser imaginary characters need to treat each other better.
You hear that, all you writers out there!
