Additionally, I’m in talks with iScript.com to see if they are willing to audio produce one selected script.

And, I’m also in talks with Norm Sherman of The DrabbleCast to help put a little twist into the August ’09 Challenge. Take a moment to pop over to The DrabbleCast, a short fiction podcast that is often humerous, often bizarre, always fun. With sci-fi, fantasy, wierd, disturbing tales- narrated by Norm Sherman.

Try and figure out what the OWC twist will be. You’ll never guess. When the twist is reveled, I’m sure I’ll anger and alienate just about everybody. – Don

April OWC selectee is… - posted by Don

Of Sound Mind by Cameron Mitchell
Read by: iScript.com

As you all know, in early April we had the April One Week Challenge wherein participants were asked to write a 12 page dramatic script about a secret revealed at a family picnic . We had 33 entries. The fine folks over at iScript.com were kind enough to select one script out of the group to be recorded.

The selected script is Of Sound Mind by Cameron Mitchell .

The wealthy Hogarth clan gathers for a picnic in the woods, to be followed by a reading of the patriarch’s will. The family will never be the same.

You can read along with the pdf version of the script here. You can discuss this script and all the OWC entries here. Click the “Play” button to listen to the script.
