View Full Version : Ben Christensen's: What the hell, I'll give it a shot ISSUE #2
09-12-2003, 08:11 PM
For anyone that doesn't already know how this works, imagine Mad Libs for comics.
I would like to have the following list filled out, the first person to do so gets their list made into a 22 page full script. Also, since my sanity has been thrown brutally through a window (it does that a lot).... I'm going to produce this script in 24 hours! That's right, within 24 hours of the first person's post, the script will magically appear. Call me crazy, call me stupid, but I've got an itch to write and a weekend to give this a go.
Without further ado, THE LIST....
CONTROLLING IDEA (THEME)(s):
General answers please, no "Spider-Man verses Batman in the Hall of Justice". More along the lines of "An angry man, a long stretch of road, his own ego...".
Oh, and note the plural options for the list. To help my sanity or hurt it, you can do more than one of each thing, just don't do twenty things each. :)
That's about it. So who gets to do Issue #2's list?

* CHARACTER(s):Female, gunslinger
* SETTING(s):Mexican/Californa Desert
* ANTAGONISM(s):Seeking revenge of the killing of her parents
* CONTROLLING IDEA(s): So focused by idea of revenge, forgets to see the good things in life.
I posted this on the CrossGen as well :D

Banshee banshee banshee, that's Single Serving for the Masses, this is What the hell, I'll give it a shot.
Different titles should have different stuff. :)
So I'm banishing the above, anyone wants in they have a shot.

oh.. ok.. I think I confuzzled...
cos u didnt respond on ur CrossGen section I thought it was a no-go LOL
Oh well.. we must give ven his due MUAHAHHAHAHAA...
I am beginning to think I aint destined for this.. LOL
09-13-2003, 05:55 PM
It's cool Banshee, since I never did seem to get the response over there that I wanted, I'm going to move it over Single Serving over here for the next one, but I will finish what I need for what's there now (since I can not look too slacking to CG).
Now I'm going to beg...
SOMEONE PLEASE DO THIS TODAY!!! I don't want to have to worry about a 24 hour deadline and deal with going to work, so I really need something soon.
09-13-2003, 10:14 PM
ok LOL :D
to b honest I dont know what u mean by single serving.. talk to me as if I am blur (which I am LOL)....
09-13-2003, 10:23 PM
I titled the different things different names. Mostly the difference is in the deadline.
"What The Hell, I'll Give It A Shot" is my 24 hour one.
"Single Serving For The Masses" is my week long one.
Originally it was because they were on different boards, but I'll be moving Single Serving over here monday or tuesday.
Hope that explains it. :)
09-13-2003, 10:28 PM
lol actually what I mean is.. what kind of info are you looking for? kinda wanna know what I did wrong LOL
09-13-2003, 10:33 PM
Oh. I think I might see what you're asking.
You gave the same list as the one on the CG boards, which I still plan on doing. So to make them unique, I chose to ask for a different list.
So... got another list in mind? :)
09-13-2003, 10:50 PM
I might hv a idea or two.......
give me a sec...
09-13-2003, 10:53 PM
CHARACTER(s): mother of twins with special mythical abilities
SETTING(s): a tropical country
ANTAGONISM(s): she is trying to save them from the scientists and government who wants to use them as weapons.
GENRE(s): sci-fi, thriller sorta thing
CONTROLLING IDEA (THEME)(s): sacrifices, power-hungry, control. That sorta thing.

See y'all in a few hours.
09-13-2003, 11:15 PM
good luck, u mad man u! LOL
Yes, I thought of my sons when I wrote that LOL
09-14-2003, 11:55 PM
Anyone know a good cure for writer's block?
I knew this would happen sooner or later (I was hoping for later), but there are just these times when I can't bring myself to write.
I can't explain it, it simply doesn't flow from me like it does other times. And of course it had to hit me with a 24 hour deadline. :)
I unfortunatly have no idea when I'm going to finish it now, the weekdays are too complex for me to manage something like this and I'm out of town this coming weekend.
...not much more I can say than I'm sorry.

Take ur time, I like reading ur stuff, however long it takes.
maybe u just need to take a step away from ur project and ur inspiration will come later.

Thanks for the kind words Banshee. I feel pretty crappy about not getting this done on time, which I don't think helped me when trying to work on it.
09-16-2003, 03:38 AM
