I can tell from the last update that it's been a while for this particular thread. Do you still want ideas, or have you got most of the dialogue written?
I only ask, because I jotted down some ideas after reading this last night. I won't be offended if you don't want to read them or anything - I write stories in my free time, and I have an editor who also collaborates on some pieces with me.
From that experience I know that it can be really hard when someone else sticks their oar in (for want of a better phrase), because it's almost impossible to explain to them exactly what your idea of the character or story is. Such things usually exist as a jumble of feelings within the creator's mind.
Not that I'm saying any of the people involved in this project are control freaks or anything! But my englishness forces me to constantly apologise, even for perceived slights which exist only in my head. (It's a hard knock life!)
I'm rambling now, so I'll stop. I claim extenuating circumstances though, because I'm at work and tapping away on this forums is by far more exciting than talking to customers about their credit cards!
So, to summarise, I would like to help with the dialogue if you still need it!
And remember, never leave a naked person unattended.
