Role Description

The Novelist: (Lead) a seductive erotic novelist who thoroughly enjoys and exercises her control over younger men. She's less of an artist than an architect who bases her world around the things she can calculate and manipulate. She has a quick wit and a dry, intellectually informed sense of humor. She may be getting bored with her life, but on the other hand, how could that be possible with such a nice life?

Script Sides - The average encounter.

MALE
And you’re using me for this?

NOVELIST
Not entirely... How old did you say
you were again? Have you been with
many girls?

MALE
That’s private... yes

NOVELIST
Does this make you happy?

MALE
I’m not sure I’m comfortable with
this. I mean, you didn’t even
bother asking permission.

NOVELIST
Oh don’t worry, by the time I’m
done editing, your mother will
hardly recognize you.

MALE
Let me see that!

Male snatches the pad from The Novelist’s hands.

MALE
Well... I definitely didn’t do any
of this.

NOVELIST
You should have.

Male flips through the notepad.

MALE
Is this a normal Friday night for
you? You sleep with random guys and
then just write fantasies about
them? You should be ashamed of
yourself.

NOVELIST
Are you ever ashamed of yourself
when you sleep with random girls?

MALE
Don’t you have anything better to
do with your time?

NOVELIST
Is there anything better to do with
your time?
