                 (Actor - the writer really! - is very inebriated.  OK, drunk as a skunk.  Wobbles onstage to look at the audience and wave a bottle/glass/whatever the director decides)

My fellow writers.....this is truly a party!  Not the block party of neighborhoods of friends.....but the true writers blocked party!  None of us has been able to write anything new for weeks, months....and in the case of some of the dead writers.....centuries!

So to them we lift a glass, or a bottle....or whatever is in our hands as we try to wrest......that's not rest, which we do plenty of!...but WREST!  With a 'W' for those who have forgotten how to spell......

As we try to WREST some new piece of fascination from our withered and withering brain order to write something....NEW!  Which is impossible because everything has already been somebody else!

The deadline is next week?  Oh, my God, the deadline is tomorrow!  NOW!  What can I do?  What could possibly inspire me?

       (Looks through pockets)

What notes have I taken?  What gems have I culled my life, my friends' lives, strangers' livers....I mean lives.....

       (Opens up a paper)

Wait a minute....I forgot about this, but this is great!  Two people driving down the road ....naked!...on a stolen lawn mower!

       (Takes a big swig from the drink)

I got it!  This is my inspiration!  Thank you my fellow writing friends!

       (Turns to leave, stops, looks back, waves the article and the drink)

I believe.....there may have been...alcohol involved!

       (Exits laughing to another strange writing result.......)


The story about the naked people on the stolen lawn mower was true ---  you just can't beat the truth for inspiration!
