SNEAK PEEK

Stop by for a snippet of past works or current projects!  If you see it below I'm either trying to rework it or it's a new piece under construction.  So, take a read and leave a comment.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.  You know, for those 'writer's block' moments.

Title: Quite Frankly

CHANTELLE
Gotdammit, Frank!

 

FRANK
What?

 

CHANTELLE
Gotdammit! An expression used when one wants to emphasize a point. Makes it sparkle.

 

FRANK
And the point?

 

CHANTELLE
You’re a muthafucka…

 

FRANK
Your build up was weak, Chantelle.

 

CHANTELLE

Twenty-four hours, Frank!

 

FRANK

Yes, there are twenty-four hours in a day. Again, your point?

 

CHANTELLE

You almost hit twenty-four hours.

 

FRANK

And?

 

CHANTELLE

And?!

 

FRANK

And…

CHANTELLE
And!!

 

FRANK
A wonderful conjunction, but something should follow. See what I did there?
