No wonder it's been so hard for me up to now...

Re: A funny idea

Mary had a little lamb
She gave it castor oil
And every time it jumped the fence,
It fertilized the soil.

Re: A funny idea

I've written probably two hundred five-minute comedy bits for puppets (for an amateur group I'm with), and one comic half-hour radio play.

It's a hoot, especially when writing for kids. They don't...

Re: What to Wear to Meeting?

I like jeans, an Oxford shirt and a tweed blazer.

(no leather patches on the elbows, thanks; that'll come after the first sale.)

If you don't like 'sit,' what about speak? Roll over? Play dead?

Re: Love interests

War of the Roses didn't have a love interest. Of course, you may well ask yourself how funny it was, too.

Re: On-the-Nose Dialogue

I'm glad to see I've once again fostered an atmosphere of informative clarity here on DD. With any luck this will grow to the dimensions of the infamous wryly thread (now a sticky in the FAQ). =]

Re: Why do you think you are gonna make it?

I will rewrite my script one. More. Time.

And it will be better than it was before. And someone will love it, because it will be really good.

And I will bloody well get this done this...

Werewolf...twist...hmmm...

A horror/comedy about a gay werewolf. That could work!

Re: Ice Cold Genres?

Hey...how many guinea pig scripts are in production right now?

Werewolves are SO 20th century. Why not werellamas instead?

Maybe we should think outta the box... =]

On-the-Nose Dialogue

I just realized one reason why I've been having trouble writing dialogue that isn't on-the-nose...I've been re-reading Tolkien's LOTR for, like, the eighth time.
