Pulling teeth today, and without anesthetic. But some progress. In a fit of unease about a character’s name (which is a sign that means I’m not really sure that I’ve got the guy down right anyway), I started working on alternates. Right now I’m thinking that John Cameron might be right, but then again, maybe it still needs some tweaking. The other names are much more solid in my mind, most particularly Jo (Josephine) Mangiamele, Rivera Rosenbloom, Eula Bragg, Harriet Darling, Jerry Russo, Patty-Cake Pace, George Bray, Amanda Rose.
Yup, those all work. Back to contemplating John.
