      These Forums are closing!   10/04/2019

      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

Do you want to write for Ron Gilbert? Of course you do!

Recommended Posts

He's accepting short writing for a library segment in Thimbleweed Park. Deadline is August 29th.

Not clear if he wants all of the writing to be humorous or not. I mean, I'd GUESS so, but I'm not really sure.

Ron says you can submit as many as you want.

Anyway, here you go:

You open the book and are surprised to find that it contains only one sentence:

"The secret is that you had it in you all along."

I really wish he'd posted this in a Kickstarter update!

To be clear, he DOES answer your question, too:

"So... put on your smart glasses, grab a pencil, and most of all, have fun and be as serious or funny as you want."

Here's one of the things I sent in:

 

Whine and Dine

Step #14: If your child continues to whinge about the lack of chicken nuggets on the menu, place them in the child’s play area.

Step #15: If no child’s play area is available, either take away their dessert privileges, or threaten to not feed them at all. Judge which method will suit your child.

Step #16: If no child’s play area is available and they don’t care about your threats, simply give up. Your husband/wife may complain that you are not being harsh enough.

Step #17: Shrug shoulders.

Step #18: Repeat steps #1-17 indefinitely or until your husband/wife files for divorce.

Step #19: Portray yourself as an awful person so that they may keep the children.

Step #20: If you end up with the children, skip to #24 and repeat indefinitely. If they end up with the children, rejoice!

Step #21: Move far away.

Step #22: Time away will teach you that you were happier with a family, you just needed a break.

Step #23: Call your family. If rejected, skip to #24, if accepted back, your eyes will well up with happiness.

Step #24: Weep uncontrollably.
