Three more days.
When I was trying to think of a defense attorney I thought of Perry Mason (way too dated), Patty Hewes (from Damages, too scary), Ellen Parsons (from Damages, too distractingly pretty), Alley McBeal (too whiney), Matlock (too Sheriff Andy Taylor-ish) and finally Denny Crane. Denny’s a little dated, but he fits the bill in two ways: he’s defense strategy is pithy and to the point (“Denny Crane”) and his goofy mug is always good for a grin.
This storyline sort of got away from me. This happens when I get particularly busy with other projects. The Odd Squad: Bully Bait goes to the printer next week. Book two in the series, The Odd Squad: Zero Tolerance, is nearing completion. I’m doing a phone seminar next week on marketing and licensing characters. And I’m a panelist next week at the Austin Film Festival.
It’s a bit easier to write an ongoing storyline (though difficult to wrap up) than one-a-day gags. Rest assured we’ll wrap this up next week. Thanks for you patience as we went down the rabbit hole over the last few weeks.
Time to come up for air.
