"Maybe you can get a job with a tabloid and violate the privacy of total strangers instead of just your friends."
 
"Not everything that’s possible can really happen."
 
"That’s like saying finding a cure for smallpox isn’t so much different from writing a short story."
 
 
 
I'M AN ORIGINAL by Katherine Dubois
 
True confession? Ripped from today’s headlines? Based on a Greek myth? Elliot gives new meaning to the term “original work” when he tries to calm the storm his short story has stirred up by inventing a plausible source—or two—or three. Where do ideas come from, and are any of them truly original?

GEORGE WASHINGTON'S HALLUCINATION
Remember the days when your history teacher gave you eight weeks to write a paper and you started it eight hours before it was due? Time’s growing short for our performer, who is fighting off sleep to write a paper about Washington crossing the Delaware. What a great time for writer’s block! Our actor turns over a host of ideas – what about George and Martha in a steamy...
I DON'T HAVE A CLUE
When Carol Robinson throws a laugh-packed murder-mystery dinner party for six friends, hires a moody maid to dish up the three-course meal, and refuses to let guests enter without fishnet tights and fedoras, no one is surprised to find a stranger hiding in the window box or two cops casing the joint—except their hostess. Somewhere between the Capone caviar and the Ma Barker...

TEN EASY STEPS TO HUMILIATION
There are two prizes at this prom: Timothy Blake and a vintage 20s dress that's been sitting in the window of a junk store. Angela and Virginia fiercely compete for both, but can they be satisfied if they each get one? Of course not! What good is a dress if you're on a bad date? While each tries to outwit the other, both of them look for advice on love and life by paging...
