I'm on the third page and oh, there's a whistle!
It's good I'm coming here to read this thread.

Now where do we shove that one...

I was kicking around a few ideas, coming back to my laptop every couple hours. Suddenly one of them evolved into what I thought was going to be very funny. And a fully developed story for 5 pages.

Then it hit me: I don't have a sewer or a whistle in this!

Back to the drawing board.

Is there a significant difference between a comedy and a pisser?

There's definitely more than a hint of piss in mine.

Sure. Comedies are intentional (most times) and pissers (good ones) are unintentional.

As long as that piss comes from the location...

That said, comedy is comedy.

To the non-comedy writers it's only manageable to hide their stuff. Go pisser or somewhere., just survive… imo

Man, I thought round 1 was tough. I've got a pretty crazy idea and I'm just gonna run with it. Apologies in advance, this is gonna get gross.



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'm drawing a complete blank at this point, haven't even got a seed of an idea.

I'm thinking I might be out :/

I know I still have time, but damn this is a tough one.

Well I wrote something. And not going to force myself to change anything to fit the genre or what you people think constitutes a comedy.
I may rewrite Monday.

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