The Mr
The Mr. Script Writer Script
(written during a particularly frustrating bout of writer's block :o)

CHARACTERS:

- Miss Melodramatic (Mel)
- Mr. Script Writer (S.W.)


MEL
Well?

S.W.
Don't bother me. I'm thinking.

MEL
Could you do some writing while you're at it?

S.W.
Can't write until I get a good idea. What are you doing here, anyway?

MEL
I'm an actress! I need a script!

S.W.
Well, ad-lib.

MEL
I'm a high-caliber actress. I don't ad-lib.

S.W.
(snorts) Somehow I doubt other "high-caliber" actors will agree with you.

MEL
My point exactly.

S.W.
Huh?

MEL
Do you consider yourself a "high-caliber" writer?

S.W.
Not particularly.

MEL
Well, wouldn't you like to be one?

S.W.
Of course.

MEL
Then ad-lib a little.

S.W.
Writers don't ad-lib.

MEL
Sure they do. Just write what's on your heart.

S.W.
But I need a good enough script idea to convey my theme.

MEL
And what theme is that?

S.W.
That God can use anyone, no matter what their talent, or how untalented they think they are.

MEL
Well, there you go. If you want to say that, then say it. Let God use your talent. Don't wait for the perfect words because they'll never come.

S.W.
You know, I think you're right. I've been waiting here an awful long time. Thanks for the advice. (begins to write)

MEL
(peeking over his shoulder) Hmm . . .

S.W.
You know, it's very distracting with you standing there.

MEL
Sorry. Just wanting to memorize my lines A.S.A.P.



THE END.
