Is anyone joining me in this misery known as Heat 17? Really, they didn't have Maytags in castles and I even wonder if they had dishes. At the Renaissance Faire, they eat turkey legs with bare hands. 
I know I was writing stories when I was five. I don't know what I did before that. Just loafed I suppose. PG Wodehouse

Hmmm, that's a toughie. Why not try something outside the box? Rather than dishes for eating etc, maybe your protagonist could have a job washing...wait for it....satellite dishes!!

Although, if castles didn't have Maytags, I'm guessing there wouldn't have been and DirectTV either.

There's definitely a need to think way outside of the box on this one.  I'm actually enjoying this pairing although I'm currently suffering from what my friend refers to as "too much sandwich" and I haven't written a single page of the actual script yet.  It's very difficult, in my mind, to create a fantastical world, set all the rules for said world, and tell a gripping story all within the confines of fifteen pages.  But that's part of what makes the challenge fun.

Dear Dan: If we colloborate, maybe we can get two pages of script done by tonight.

Are you getting Google ads on this page for Refrigerator Repair, SEARS KENMORE APPLIANCES and APPLIANCE REPAIR: Local Factory trained Appliance Technicians, Fast friendly service? I think these ads are so cute and inspirational, I think I'll ring them up immediately.

a dishwasher doesn't have to be a machine. It can be a person. When I saw the category, a person, like in a restaurant, is what came to my mind.

I can just see it- this poor smuck having to wash dishes in the castle and no Dawn Dish Soap to help with the grease! No SOS pads! No rubber gloves! what a case of dishpan hands that girl/guy would have!

I'm totally on my third page already.  You're jealous, I can sense it through the internet(s).  I haven't seen any ads.  I've had my idea fleshed out for a while not it's just the actual writing that's killing me.

It is quite hopeless as I lost the email where you are supposed to send it. I am jealous you have three pages and also that you kept the rules. The ads are very cute and under the first post like this:
  • GE Appliance Repair
    Local Factory-trained GE Appliance technicians. Fast Friendly Service!
    GE.com

Well hopefully the muses have struck you by now.  I'm only on page five but, I hope, picking up steam.
