Ok, I'll play your silly game...

So, Red Right Hand and FunJoel have thrown down the guantlet, showing us a page of their writing, and challenging other bloggers to do the same.

Below... my answer to that challenge.(Thanks to Chris, of The Big Woo, for his advice on how to do this!)

It's my submission for the Writer's Arc short screenplay section. As Shawna and Chris both stated, they gave us 4 elements of a screenplay (2 character names Chris Marquez and Sandy Fletcher), one location (station) and one prop (board). Everything is designed to facilitate one's own flight of fancy in regards to these four elements and now, without further ado (or without further doo-doo... you pick) my entry: Strangers in the night

Nicey nice. Good to see someone used the bus station! Learn to love Courier New though. As a lawyer who was trained to love Times New Roman (and whose former boss loved Courier New nonetheless), it's been a struggle for me. If I can do it, anyone can.

It's FD's version of Courier. I'm not changing it.

Love the way each page flows gracefully into the next. You make it seem so easy. I know it's not. Impressive.

Good luck. I dig it. It'd be even cooler if you actually submitted it with the name writergurl on the front page.

Also, I think you meant to write "Sandy sees the piece of siding", instead of "Sandy see the piece of siding" on page 9.

LOL, writebrother, wanna proof everything else I have? I gave this to 3 people to read before submitting it, read it myself a couple of times, the people who commented above read it, and YOU'RE the only one to notice that typo. Sharp eye. Thanks!

Nice work! And btw, I can't take credit for the challenge -- I just passed it along. It's all Red Right Hand.

Also btw, I'm really glad you made both characters men -- I saw the names, and noticed how they were kinda ambiguous, but nearly everyone's script I read made Chris a male and Sandy a female. Nice to see a different take there (and the use of "board" in two different contexts).
