Does summer need to feature as a theme? I suspect not. Asking anyway, for a friend.

Thanks, dpat.


No. "Dog days of Summer" is the title of the writing exercise. Theme is open to the author.


Good Luck.

Well that's just not right. It's hemispheric bias at an unacceptable level. We'll have to rename this thread "Dog Days of Summer and for some Winter" or "Clark". Given I don't really like Clark, for reasons I shall not go into presently, we shall rename the thread "Dog Days of Summer and for some Winter". It may take a bit of time though with all the paper work involved.

So no restrictions at all?
Just the page count?
Restrictions usually help unless we already had something in mind.

Just curious, what kind of restrictions were you thinking about? Is restrictions the right word? You mean thematic suggestions or scenes to include in the script?

Shall we make a head count?
We should have a minimum of writers to launch, we had problems with that in the past.
I'm in!
