Write around the clock

I hope she'll still have time to hang out with the rest of us throughout the month but just wanted to let yous know (especially in view of the lean athlete carrying a big pencil running in place on the right-hand side of our blog and to clear up confusion about the many comments that have been flying around) that in addition to jobs and PhD-ing, E has signed up to write a novel in a month.

It's national novel-writing month, people. And, by the end of the month, I'll be mates with a novellist. All I ask is when Hollywood makes a huge blockbuster "based on" E's book and starring him, him, him and him and perhaps with him as a villain, I get to have a (minor. I'm well aware of my lack of thespian abilities) role.

Go, E!

Yeah, the guy with the pencil looks nothing like me. And nowhere does it say that it has to be a good novel. Just a finished one.

Where are Ralph Fiennes and Viggo Mortensen? They'll get parts over any of the guys you mentioned.

How'd you like to play the main character's funny, but bitter cohort?

Ohh...yes! Pick me in a role though RF and VM would intimidate me and reduce already pitiful acting abilities :-)
Am definitely lurking at your next gig. Be warned.

I have no fear. We're a pretty big crowd, and there wasn't that much actual writing going on tonight. Hoping that gets better, or else what's the point?

You and RF could just exchange deep meaningful looks and sigh occasionally. Works in all his best movies.

RF is a wonderful being! (she says dreamily....)

Exactly. Any movie is better with RF.

And P, your character seems to have tied herself to a tree branch. She's now singing loudly and drunkenly while throwing candy corn at the police. Sorry.

And I have no idea how to get her out of the tree without spending a night in jail.

Oh no! And, I don't even know what candy corn is. Typical that she'd tie herself to a tree "branch" though rather than doing the sensible thing and tying oneself to the trunk. Fictional characters, eh? Can't trust 'em.

You'd like it. No nutritional value, brightly colored, and it stings like the dickens when flung.
