I want to write and tell stories.

The clock is ticking.........

We've all heard about it, cursed it, praised it, cried into our pillows thinking about it, and realised it is not a bad idea.

Matt at The Daily Pitch is organizing it. Yes, he most probably does push little children off their bikes for pleasure, there could also be a few babies missing their candy, but he is the organisor of this little fun two week hell hole. :) So big thanks to Matt for it. I may be able to do it this time, and will certainly try. Work and beers permitting.

Think about it, the guys down the mine, if they had a laptop, FD or MMS, they could have written the movie whilst they were down there. Easy! :)

cheers

The faces of the little kids as they fall is priceless... and candy never tasted as sweet as when stolen from a baby...

Seriously though, thanks for the mention. Hope you can join in some time when life permits.

Lee, you make it sound like joining Scientology. Is Tom going to participate?

Do we get to play with the sonogram? I want to see what my insides look like after years of meat pies and beer :)

Dave, I think we need to get everyone we know who has a writing blog onto this, and commit to sharing the (possibly rotten) fruits of our labour afterwards. I'm in!

Actually, I can't believe I'm saying this. I have a weekend away (Anniversary) during it and it's also the busiest time of the year at work.

Ah, screw it! Nothing wrong with a bit of hard work.

I'm still in!

What about you, Dave?

At first I was like no, not for me, but as of last couple of days am giving it serious consideration.

I might cheat though :) and use a script I have started and just finish that one. It still has a long way to go, but it is worth it just to finish.

I would say I am in at this stage.
cheers

Good news! Let's hope it stays that way because, in the incomparable words of Nurse Laverne Roberts, "You don't have to apologise to me. You will have to answer to Jesus."

Love the Laverne long time!

Yep saw that Chris. I actually think your method could be very useful, but like I said to Matt, I want to get a couple of scripts under my belt the hard way, and then look at different methods. This is just me....I seem to do better if I force myself to do something and then look at the instruction manual.....don't know why :)
cheers

No way I can do it. I rarely find time to go to the bathroom.

There are devices to help solve that problem Maryan :)
