Quoted from ReneC
You know, not every sewer is for waste matter...but who can resist?


Yes, some are for weed smoking and listening to punk music. Others for long romantic walks. Away from jail or something.

I can't think of anything more romantic than a nice walk through a disused sewer.

Did one this morning. Someone will probably say I didn't fit the criteria because there were no floating turds. Anyway, all about amusing ourselves. In the end I amused myself a little. Hopefully it's an easy enough read people can read it, score it, and forget it.

That made me laugh and for all the wrong reasons. Thanks to Sean I'm turning into an idiot at a lightspeed.

Sorry Kevin, I couldn't resist.

Lol, yeah, did one in the sewer. I decided to explore as part of the researching of this challenge. The alligators weren't too friendly and I found an old bobblehead fused with some doo doo.

OK, my idea and characters are ready, so I'm starting and hoping to be done well before my girlfriend gets home from work.  This will be better for everyone involved...including all who read this.

You gonna get your girlfriend's approval before you submit? I'm curious what her reaction to your sewer comedy will be.


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.

I think Dave's spoof script about Jeff is much funnier than my actual script. But at least I'm in. I expect it will about as well received as my last flop!

I'm in, reminded my why I don't normally write comedy!

Ah well, hopefully the remaining rounds will be better.

Well, I hated my entry at first. Then, as I go through rewrites... I'm kind of liking it. But then, I kind of liked my first round entry... and, it's not doing all that well... so, I expect more of the same.

Survival. That's the goal right now. Get some points, stay in the game. Hope to hit on one of the five.

I got 3 scripts out of last year's challenge that I really like. 2 that could someday get made (if the right person finds them), 1 just for me. I'd be over the moon if I could match that this year.

I've never been so stressed about sewers and whistles *Pours himself another glass of port*

I finally had a half decent idea as I left work - I'm now 3 pages into the vomit draft but considering its nearly 10pm here I would rather be sleeping.

PKCardinal, I'm with you - This is now just survival

I wonder if we’ll have a full house for the second round?

I have resisted so many puns today.


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