My outline is in place, have my three major female characters set up (I think):

1. The ex-wife who you married because of the electric physical chemistry.  But once that were off, you realized she was kind of an asshole…

2. The great love who you’re still on good terms with all things considered.  Maybe it was the wrong time?

3. And the main character who doesn’t seem like an obvious option but may in fact be perfect for you.  But is she?  To be continued.

To all my friends who offered suggestions for actresses/comediennes, thank you, thank you, thank you.  I took all your suggestions and filled out my prototypes with these women in mind.  So much talent out here, man.  Very happy with my prototypes, and I’m in love with writing again, honeymoon phase or not.

Anyway, since I’m in my full Sinatra ‘heartbroken but optimistic romantic’ mode, I thought I’d throw up one of my all time favorites today.  Great song, even the lyrics alone I love.  Enjoy.

Don’t wish it away
Don’t look at it like it’s forever
Between you and me I could honestly say
That things can only get better

And while I’m away
Dust out the demons inside
And it won’t be long before you and me run
To the place in our hearts where we hide

And I guess that’s why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that’s why they call it the blues

Just stare into space
Picture my face in your hands
Live for each second without hesitation
And never forget I’m your man

Wait on me girl
Cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself
