Am I allowed to get weird with the bobblehead doll? Lol

What I mean is... Does it need to be a traditional bobblehead, or can it be something a little stranger that strongly resembles a bobblehead doll? I'm being vague, I know. But I don't want to out myself.


An example of my writing...

FOR SATAN - short, horror, 14 pgs (revised draft) - A group of thrill-seekers explore a creepy old house on Halloween night. Think you know this story? Think again.

Bobblehead doll is pretty specific. It either is or it isn't. Use your discretion, but be wary others may not see it that way in their reviews.

I think mine fits the bill... Even if just barely.

I'm not in this... but, come on, it's a bobblehead doll... it will be some kind of doll with a bobbly head. Even if it's a lion doll with a bobbly head, it's a bobblehead doll.

You're giving your script away more and more. Why couldn't you have just written the script without asking? Your question hasn't been answered and you're going to do it anyway... so what was the point?

Could just be misdirection.    And Sean more or less did answer the question for me.

Though in hindsight, I probably should of just ran with it. Oh well. Asking dumb questions is one of my major character flaws.

You're doing better than me. All I've got is Fade In:

And yet somehow I've already got 2 typos and an orphan.

In case anyone was wondering:

bob·ble·head

noun: bobblehead; plural noun: bobbleheads; noun: bobblehead doll; plural noun: bobblehead dolls; noun: bobble-head; plural noun: bobble-heads; noun: bobble-head doll; plural noun: bobble-head dolls

a figurine with a disproportionately large head mounted on a spring so that it bobs up and down, often made as a caricature of a famous person.


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.

That definition seems pretty open to me.

Thanks Gary

I kind of looked like a bobblehead in the 8th grade. That was before they were invented fortunately, or I might have got that nickname,
