Just a check-in here for y'all. How're y' doin'? Stuck? Got a brilliant idea but can't get the words right? Submitted? Given up?

On Version 4. I've had my script out to some fantastic betas and have been making adjustments on and off all day. Just having fun with it.

Aside from a few tweaks, I think I'm done. I've already submitted the current version, so if nothing else, I guess I'll see what happens. :)

Got my headache down to a 2, starting to put ideas down. 

Spent the day curled in a ball thinking about the survival statistics of brownies in police stations.  From the brownie's point of view more of a suspense, or even horror, but it could be a drama if there's a running gun battle for the last one.

Good to hear. I'm on version 5, and I think it's got legs. 

I honestly stared at the prompt last night absolutely hating it, but decided to just let myself not try to "do" a political satire piece. And then it kinda just came together this morning. I've had some good comments from inspired beta readers.

Ugh. Sorry to hear about the headache.

I'm deeply curious what you come up with. Either you are imagining armed young Girl Scouts, or your bakery produces some very self-aware chocolate treats... ;)

(Yes, I know there's another meaning. I may be a script writer, but I also know some things!)

Finished reading "The Storm Before the Storm" today, speaking of political satire.  Unfortunately it's not satirical, but it's foretelling.

Next up is a biography of either Scipio Africanus or George W. S. Abbey. 

No, wait, next up is a five minute screenplay...

On draft number 3. Each one drastically different than the last. After struggling all day to make my voice fit into the romance genre (it doesn’t) I just decided to accept that I will not place in this round and wrote something that’s more me. I wrote with the aim of making my husband smile. Is it romance? Sort of, maybe. But at least I’m going to be able to submit something I like.

Potentially have food poisoning, so that's made for a fun 5 or 6 hours. Have almost a page written, but currently trying not to die Cry
