I can't say my character Huey Dusk was growing stale... but after reading the current manuscript for the next Huey story, my interest in him has been rejuvenated. Today I have had an explosion of ideas for new stories and different directions for the clown's journey. I guess this happens when I latch on to an author that I am starting to like. Currently, that is Ross Macdonald. As a result, I am thinking the next Huey story will shift away from Spillane and more toward Macdonald's style of writing. That is the beauty of writing about a clown... you can shift from genre to genre and prose style to prose style.
