Have you actually tried writing a screenplay during a black-out, or are you quitting before you ever get started?

I'm pretty sure that's how Shostakovitch's Octet was written.  More likely he used stevenmatlock's method.

Nothing else adequately explains how something that bad still shows up in the repertoire.

Writing is easy. You just open a vein and bleed.

NGL, I'm in for a busy weekend and will need to piece together the time I need to write this.

But that's how I roll now, I guess.

I like the idea of drinking until something erupts on the page.

I have found, historically, that it is far more difficult to view the prompts through the bottom of a box.  Granted they do look better, mostly because you can't see them anymore and can pretend comedy-weapon of mass destruction-newborn baby was the unfortunate side-effect of consuming a box of grape juice...

Prompts viewed through the punt of a bottle, on the other hand, take on a far more pleasing aspect.

Just saying.

Big smile

This is my favourite one =) I am so very happy to see so many newbies and returnees! Plus, for me, it's a great way to procrastinate on an actual end of month deadline. Maybe this contest will knock somethingloose.Lamp

I am in. I've stocked up on cheese and I'm picking up a juice box (merlot flavoured) on the way home tonight.

Let the madness begin!

Crap, that's this weekend, isn't it?  Yeesh.

Guess I'd better sharpen my keyboard.  Make sure I have a limitless supply of Australian Shiraz because the prompts always look better when viewed through the bottom of a glass.
