Finding the jeopardy

I'm writing a biographical screenplay about a fascinating author, a true giant in his field. He had his share of reversals in his life but frankly overcame them rather handily.

He had a love affair with an older married woman, but he broke it off. He argued with his publisher over the editing of his second book and severed the relationship - but quickly found another publisher to take him on and succeeded there without a hitch. Everybody in his hometown hated hi - but he quite happily lived far away.

This writer had some fascinating issues that manifested in his actions, but he took no real risks. If he hadn't been published, he had gainful employment to fall back on. He wasn't a tortured soul, just a capable one.

This story is there, waiting to be told, but it's not going to be easy. It may be the hardest task I've bitten into yet.

Bonus humour:

Take a gander at the LOLcat Bible. Screw Tuscan whole milk. None of those reviews holds a candle to the oeuvre of Henry Raddick. I'm sticking to the LOLcats.

"Oh hai. In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez An da Urfs, but he did not eated dem...."
