Ollie, I just realized that you are doing the Nanowri, so your date has been extended. We will expect a script by January 1st, 2008. That is, if you accept the challenge. ;)

I'm sorry, I wasn't listening, I heard shower and sort of drifted off.

Sounds great, will probably start a new thread for it so I can post a link to this one.
I'll probably do a crime drama, I'm a big fan of those. [Incidentally I've already written something containing MWC members]

EDIT: If anyone woulds like to die in this script please PM me.

But no cheating and using 'The Emmerdale Solution', where a plane crashes on the village and kills every character who is unwilling to accept the new contracts offered by the TV company.  'Corporate Manslaughter's' finest hour ;-)

Yeah thatollie! *does the happy dance* Sounds like great fun.

Will your crime drama be anything like David Lynch's Twin Peaks? ;)

Well...  If you want to play the numbers game...

Young Ollie he's a murderous sod
and he kills them on the fly,
but here's twenty thousand Cornishmen
who'll know the reason why."

[Can be sung - if you really, absolutely, insist - to the tune of the Cornish National Anthem, Trelawney.

Where am I going to find 20,000 flies for them to ride into my death machine? After all, we didn't get a summer so my fly stocks are a little low.

In my next novel there is a funeral for a coffee shop, if you'd like to attend, please just say so.

If bananas could talk, what would their voices be like. I've always thought they'd sound like Allan Arbus.

Bananas would have a low, slippery baratone...I think.

Why would a banana talk and who would it talk to? What would it say?

And what "fruits" would be rendered to the lonely and confused category...?   LOL!!!  :D  (We could, rhetorically speaking, open a real can of worms here... LOL!!!)
