  • The White Cat and SkyFest

    Code:
    FADE IN
    
              EXT. YOU T. SCRIPTWRITER'S HOME, YOURTOWN - NIGHT
    
              A nice home, dark except for one basement light.
    
              BLACK CAT, fat and sassy, pads along the side of the house.
    
              He hears computer keys clacking passionately.
    
              He pauses by the lighted window. His head moves from side to
              side as he reads something inside.
    
              Nose in the air, he stalks off. Everyone's a critic!
    
              INT. YOU T. SCRIPTWRITER'S BASEMENT FAMILY ROOM - NIGHT
    
              YOU T. SCRIPTWRITER - 20s, incredibly handsome, attractive,
              heroic - pounds the keyboard. The  sound of the keys rise
              into a crescendo as the story ends perfectly and even the
              final FADE OUT is evocative.
    
                                  YOU
                        There! I'll print it out tomorrow,
                        bind it, and stack it in the corner
                        with the others.
    
              Reclining in another corner, WHITE CAT - handsome,
              attractive, the heroic and faithful sidekick of the heroic
              and attractive YOU T. SCRIPTWRITER - shakes his head.
    
              White Cat crosses the room and jumps up into his companion's
              lap. He places his two front paws on the keyboard.
    
              His paws move in the blur of a seasoned computer user -
              saving and closing out the script, and opening a browser.
    
              He types in "SkyFest.net" and the site pops up. He gestures
              at the screen.
    
                                  YOU
                        Hmmm. SkyFest Film & Script
                        Festival. ... Wow! The script
                        category has FOUR cash prizes and
                        25 Certificates of Excellence!
    
              White Cat gestures at the stack of scripts in the corner,
              then again at the screen.
    
                                  YOU
                        Submit via Withoutabox or directly.
                        Deadline March 15 for SkyFest III.
                        ... Okay, I'll do it!
    
              White Cat nods, jumps to the floor, and returns to his pad.
    
              White Cat shrugs. Why is it always left up to the cat to
              come up with the happy ending? Good thing he was there!
    
                                       THE END
    
                                                                 FADE OUT

      are not critics usually fat and sassy?

        Thinking more about your comment, sometimes things get read into words that aren't.

        If it pleases you, think of the cats as as light orange and puce. I do not think ANYONE would disagree that critics are more ofter puce than any other color.

        No disrespect intended, just a quick little exercise in creativity to alert people to SkyFest - a festival run by a writer and kind to writers.

        That's all.
