Scriptwriters Showc-aaaghghhh...cough...

More in-depth blogging on the Scriptwriters Showcase later this weekend. I would write you a meaty post about the fine Benderspink panel or chatting with John Cox about the John Milius draft of "Sgt. Rock", but, you see, I am moderating the panel on writing for videogames first thing in the morning, and I need to get some sleep, otherwise I'm likely to start badly hallucinating during the panel and no one wants that:

"And here on my left is Dave Taylor who is, as you can see quite plainly, a gigantic lizard. And beside him is Sean O'Keefe just back from another harrowing voyage in the North Sea - all hail Lord Osiris, may his name live forever! Yeow! The guns! Jesus God! The GUNS!!!"

No, we don't want that. No, no.

I did learn one very important thing at the Scriptwriters Showcase today, and I wanted to give a heads-up, lest anyone attending tomorrow or Sunday make the same miserable mistake I did.

A wWd of warning, friends and colleagues:

However you may decide to travel to the Sheraton Universal for the remainder of this weekend's showcasings, I must tell you - and I think it may be one of the most important factlets you are exposed to during these three days - ...


... do NOT walk up this hill!




Learn from my mistakes. Take the free Shuttle bus. I beg you.

I beg you.

I did it. I made it up the hill.

Once.

I coughed something alive up from the inner folds of my lung tissue...

Then I took the shuttle.

That is because you, bill cunningham, are very brave. And wise for not trying it again - unlike some of us.
