Group 8: Historical Fiction/ an Invasion/ a Plumber

Time to read up on pipe fitting and plumbing jargon then.  At least it somewhat limits the time period.  

You know, the Romans had plumbing. And bunches of invasions. Just sayin'.Evil Smile

Actually, the basis of the word "plumber" is latin - relating to someone who works with lead. Going back to Roman times...


In Latin wouldn't they work with plumbum?  Just sayin'.  Try to keep the natrium out of the water pipes, though...

This is the most research I've ever done for an NYCM script but I have to say I'm now quite excited about the prospects for it!

I always thought I wanted Historical Fiction.

Thought.

Damn. What I wouldn't give for a punchy political satire right now.

Congratulations on your 1st place finish last round! Nerve-wracking to have YOU as my heatmate! Best of luck! I hope we both do well!

Me too! Though, at the moment, I'd just be grateful for a workable idea...fingers crossed!

I've enjoyed mine, but then I'm a history nut.  Given you don't have a clean weekend to work on it...yeah.  You'll smash it, though!  Big smile

The further back you know the further forward you are likely to see...

LOL - Hey there, heat-mate! Groundskeeper Willy, that's hilarious. Thank goodness I didn't read this until *after* I finally came up with an idea, or I'd never have been able to get past that visual. LOL

A second heat-mate! Cool!

Wicked! A third heat-mate! Can't go wrong with Caddyshack. LOL

This one almost lends itself to humor. Is it me, or is this combo actually kind of tough??? I mean, groundskeeper almost feels like the opposite of action/adventure. Tongue

Hey, round 1 heat-mate! :) Looks like we're in different heats this time, but I got Action/Adventure, which isn't too far off Thriller. How are things going with you this time around? I'm finally nailed down on a story idea and just have to write it. LOL
