I have a character who is a crow. He isn't a killer. He's a problem solver and sometimes those problems are bodies. Sometimes they're dead.
Anyway, he's an interesting sort of fellow. I always picture Max Von Sydow in Three Days of the Condor though that character was too much the killer for my particular casting.
There are some characters that seem to stay with me. There's a driver from a story I wrote thirty years ago i remember clear as a bell today. He was just "a driver" in the story that the protagonist encounters at the counter of a truck stop. He's trying to pay but the waitress at the register can't read the other waitress' handwriting.
She won't listen to "the driver" about what he had. My protagonist just orders a coffee as a result.
I'm going to pull some old work out here this winter. I need to see what I saw back then.
Any advice on re-visiting old work?
