Nah, I already wrote a dumb one, and now I'm trying to come up with something more clever.

Com'n guys!  Just write anything. You can't be out!  1 pagers are perfect for this challenge.


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Every time I come up with an idea, it keeps leaning more toward comedy.

Write it man, look forward to it. I've got one perverted comedy written already, but I feel guilty posting without a solid try also.

I will either post two, or nothing. The drama I'm cranking in my head, probably won't fit into 15 pages. This is a tuffy. Separates the men from the boys IMO.

Actually, I don't ever recall a ban on multiple submissions. It has happened several times over the course of the challenge. It always messes with the people who guess the authors.

I will be working on reads this time, dear Jeff. I'm getting together a bunch of things for my son and his" wife to be" for their love nest and that's the priority right now.

They're out buying a bed and furniture and I'm washing pots and such.

Again, I recommend to anyone who is dipping into the nether-regions of the writing world and thus life itself, to join in the OWC. Do not be afraid. As I say this, it might sound funny, but I mean it. Working on deadlines is intimidating. It forces you to rise to a new level.

Don't compare yourself to anyone else. (Or do, but appreciate your individuality. That's why God broke Adam into billions.) You are you and that's what's special. I know that sounds like what they told you in grade two or something: "You're unique", but it's true. Your story is your story; so tell it for God's sake.  

I'm posting this video I found yesterday because I feel this fondness for athletes and that grit and determination. Although the wresting world is often thought of as a mockery, I believe that these individuals are a tremendous blend of theatre and sport. One day, a smart guy determined that he could mix the two (acting and sport) and make a killing. Kind of like cheese and macaroni and Kraft Dinner was born.  

Since I've been working on Thief so hard this last while, I kept thinking about how I love theatre. You might remember, I went to see Jesus Christ Superstar on January 1st... and I just love live performances so much. So...

This has me thinking about "the acting element" more and more. When one presents themselves as "on stage" it's really quite different than one who conceals their nature as we mostly do because we're ashamed of who we really are. At least I am.

When I came across this video, I felt a kind of connection that probably goes back to my brother, how he died, and the fact that he died so young.

For anyone who's lost a loved one. This one's for you. And remember: Write for God's sake!

We'll work on getting a New World Colony started where the women will work much more efficiently on pleasing their men. Lavish amounts of time spent in luxury development. ...

Course we women have an interest too...   Those foot massages are like a whip.

I just had an idea. If someone wants to supply the plot, I'll write it. You can revise it and Poof! Done!

Welp, not to yours dismay, I'm out. Was in the process of writing a four page pisstake about a girl who doesn't go down on her boyfriend because, as she puts it, "she doesn't eat meat."

It's just not funny.

Good luck to ya's. Can't remember the last time an OWC topic got buried on the boards. Cheers all, be sitting at the pub with Ren.

A pretentious, troubled young vegan gets sent to live on her uncle's farm for the summer cuz her mom's working doubles to pay for her late husband's medical expenses.

She runs away and gets hunted down by a pack of wild dogs. the farmer kills one of them to save her. Putting the blood of the animal on her hands. She then opens up to him. He explains to her that life on a farm is about providing for the animals and, in time, how they provide for him.

She reveals how lost she is without her father.

Liked what i had, just no time. Won't fit into fifteen either.

I've been too busy this week to write one. Sometimes I write something at the last minute, but I think we're supposed to to a podcast tonight.
