    This is hilarious. My experience at Odyssey was nothing like this (everyone there was extremely civilized and hardworking), but this evoked a feeling of nostalgia nonetheless. Awesome!

    • I came up with this idea long before Odyssey existed, back when Murder, She Wrote was still on the air. I even pitched it to a friend who was the executive producer at the time. Well, not this exactly, (LOL!) but Jessica Fletcher goes to a long writers workshop. He had already pitched it to the network and they had turned it down “because no one cares about writers,” apparently forgetting that Jessica Fletcher was a writer. So we joked about the way that people die around Ms Fletcher–and years later, the entire story morphed into this, without Jessica Fletcher at all. :-)
