Fab Feb Film Fest

Let's face it, February is going to suck. After these glorious January weeks on the West Coast, February is bound to be wet and miserable again, and it will probably be worse where you are. Sure, you've got Valentine's Day, for all of you who like chocolate, and for the few left in the work force who aren't in the service sector, you've got those February holiday weekends. (Go buy something at your neighborhood independent bookstore, or independent anything. Oh, yeah--we'll be open.) But really, what better use of bad weather and a few extra hours than to write a story?

If you think the prospect sounds interesting, as I do, check out At the Bijou. From what I can tell the requirements are pretty liberal, and from my last couple of months of entering these kinds of things, it is all pretty darn fun.

Uh, could anyone give me my prompt?

  1. I don't know about a prompt, but I couldn't resist trying to say "Fab Feb Film Fest" 3 times fast. It came out fa..f...fil...fest.

  2. Well, following your example, I tried this myself, and by the end sounded like I had a mouthful of crackers.

  3. Seana, you should try it with a mouthful of crackers, that could be fun. Don't forget to video your attempts and post them for us.

  4. Glenna, I'd be right on that, if I only had any kind of video recorder. But I don't even have a phone camera.

    Darn.

  5. Well, it was a thought anyway.

  6. You could always watch The King's Speech and wait for the bit where he fills his mouth with marbles. I guarantee you that Colin Firth looks better with his mouth full of stuff than I would.

  7. I plan on taking you up on that suggestion.

  8. HEY THERE YOU LILTING LINGUISTS ~

    Absolutely*Kate here, chatelaine, projectionist and director, AT THE BIJOU ... I couldn't stop myself from hearing (and guffawing super good-naturedly) at the SEANA - GLENNA ACT ... coming to The FAB*FEB*FILM*FEST.

    Wowzers!!! I'm gonna have to get more bulbs for the spotlights and kliegs with the likes of your better banter battered around the buttered popcorn and readers galore.

    Yes! Yes! Rules? Liberal? Yep - Write us up anything cinematically, movie related - from your head, your heart or inspiration you didn't even see coming.

    Thanks for this glorious plug. Bogey whispered when I ran into you on shadowy crime streets, this would be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. (Uh, I don't talk back to Bogie)

    Spread the word!
    See ya with plenty of pizazz up on our big screen. ~ Absolutely*Kate - 'cause good writing shows must go on

  9. Thanks for the cameo apppearance, Absolutely Kate. I hope I can drum up a few starstruck hopefuls. Or at least send something myself.

    Loved the tongue twister, but won't be attempting it...
