Joelyn’s Book Bites #1.11

Book Bitse

Two more weeks until April, which means Script Frenzy is upon us!

So for this week, Joelyn’s Book Bites will be concentrating on the coming of Script Frenzy.

For those wondering, Script Frenzy is another writing programme under the Office of Letters and Light, the same people that brought you National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). But instead of 50,000 words in 30 days, you do 100 pages of script in 30 days.

Like NaNoWriMo, you can write whatever script you wish, TV serials, Screenplays, Documentaries, Theatre Plays, Musicals and what have yous, as long as it reaches 100 pages in 30 days.

For me, I’m thinking a season of TV episodes, featuring the Happy Smiley Writers Group. Cheesy as it may sound, I’m doing it for the fun of it. Who knows, maybe some new ideas may pop up, since it’s crime fiction as well.

So while I prepare to embark on this 100 page quest, I should probably leave you with a thought provoker for you to start your own writing projects. So here goes:

How do they get the ship in a bottle’s ship into the bottle?

  1. They lie the masts down on the ship with the base end pointing the same way and just outside the hole they’re mounted in. Then they tie a string around the masts. Then they insert the ship so that base ends of the masts now point towards the bottle neck and out of the bottle, pull the strings so that the mast slots into the hole and rises to vertical.

    Undo the string holding the masts, put a cork in it, and hey presto. Genius.

    Alternative 1:

    Using long-handled tools, assemble ship _in_ bottle.

    Alternative 2: Using a ship made out of a material that will not be damaged by the relevant temperatures, assemble bottle around ship (you know the base of a beer bottle is glued on to the rest of it?)
