(103) The Stages of Red Planet Fever...

All over now 'til big Tone phones up...
Good luck to one and all; let's hope one of us Scribospherists wrote the winning script!

As you're all my bestest friends, I thought I'd share my Red Planet 2008 writing diary with you.

The stages of Red Planet Fever.
As acted out by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Players...


1/ "Coupla Months to write 10 pages..?"

EASY...NO PROBLEM...




2/ "Yeah, yeah, PO3 showed up a few plot holes to sort out..."

STILL TIME, IT'S ONLY 10 PAGES...SHOULDN'T BE A PROBLEM...



3/ "Deadline's getting close, where'd the time go?"

NO WORRIES...I CAN DO IT...IT'S ONLY 10 BLOODY PAGES...



4/ "What? You're unclear about the protag and the conflict, but it's the funniest thing you've read?"

IT'S NOT A COMEDY! CAN I FIX THIS? THERE'S ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!



5/ "Done. Polished. Shining. Best multi protag experimental flashback/flash forward multi million pound special effects 60 minute comedy drama ever written. Jordan would be a fool to pass on this..."

I HAVEN'T SLEPT IN DAYS! IT WAS ONLY 10 PAGES! CHRIST KNOWS HOW I'LL TURN IN AN HOURS WORTH! BLOODY HELL, FORGOT TO ADD MY NAME AND ADDRESS...

Had a letter...

Dear Mr Sheiky,
RP is pleased to announce we will be co-financing your excellent spec proposal "Shakespeare: a storyteller's yarn" with our US production partners.

However, they request that you do a rewrite to include all the Mad Cat characters from your blog in the main roles...

T.J.

Thanks to Jeb, Susan F and Donna for the emails re the blank spaces/missing pictures.

Copied the moving cat piccys from a different source now, so hopefully that's sorted it out and the images will stay!!!
Cheers again, Guys!

Missed the stage where the cat tries to claw the envelope out of the post box because she thinks she forgot to fix a typo.
