He’s now retired from the rat race and trying to learn ranching without screwing up too badly.

  • Strengths: He plays piano, writes very well and has a permanent novel going, and plays poker when with friends. Will is an extremely patient fellow.
  • Quirks, idiosyncracies and foibles: Will hates to hear women curse, and though he wouldn’t bandy it about, he has a lot of sexual experience.
  • Likes and dislikes: He likes spanking, sex, bourbon, country music, horses, reading, TV crime stories and old Westerns. Will dislikes actors and other Hollywood types, pinching pennies (vows to never go back to that nor inflict it on his children), and slutty women.
  • Goal in this story: Will wants to get his water easement, wants to be neighborly, wants to be a rancher, wants to leave Hollywood and its pretentiousness behind, and was a player but now wants to find a decent woman and settle down.
