Beer and Boobs Cure Writer's Block

I've written a script for a feature-length science fiction film entitled The Roswell Chronicles. The whole thing is supposed to be a trilogy about this family that finds themselves caught between a greedy corporation and some pissed off aliens.

Anyway, I'm working with some folks to get this movie made. I mention that I always envisioned it as a trilogy.  They ask to see a summary of the next two scripts.

Strippers Cure Writer's Block
I say, "No problem.  I can have a one page summary of each to you by Monday."

Well, here's the problem: I had a general concept of how each film would play, but I didn't have any of the details worked out. I was confident that I could deliver them, which is why I said that, but I didn't have it.

Anyway, as I started to write these summaries, I immediately developed the worst case of writer's block imaginable. If it had happened to anyone else, I would say that it was funny.

Well, long story short, in an act of desperation, I went to the one place where my mind has always relaxed - my local strip club. I settled into a dimly lit booth with a pen and paper, ordered a beer, and started writing.

The surprising thing is that it worked. My writer's block slipped away. I was able to draft the entire first act for my second film, as well as decent chunk of the second act, in an afternoon. I could've continued writing and finished the second act, but I had a meeting this evening that I had to attend.

There is something about the way the black lights illuminate a page that simply inspires me to write a science fiction piece. Plus, the entire atmosphere of such a place is geared towards relaxing one's mind. Of course, I simply love telling people telling people that beer and boobs can cure writer's block.

The thing that I truly wonder about is, since this has been so good at helping me write, can I deduct my bar tab from this afternoon on my taxes?

This cracked me up, but I think you have a point. Actually, two. Anyplace that can relax your mind is a good place to write. Therefore, number two, I think you SHOULD be able to deduct it from your taxes!

On the flip side, Orlando Bloom, Gerrard Butler, Russell Crow....they're pretty good for me!

Hmmm...

Is there a place where one can see Orlando Bloom, Gerrard Butler, and Russell Crow in the flesh?

We might have to create it. We could even call it Man Candyland.
Hahahahaha.....that's a GREAT idea....you're a genius!!!
