Keep Those Wagons Rolling

You know when you've done a really awkward interview and you told the panel you were writing a Western... when you're not in fact writing a Western.....

LOL! So, how did you bluff your way out of that?! We should be told...

I can just hear the silence in the interview. Cue tumbleweeds...

Thanks for the advice and the link. I think if it were me I'd probably just write a western to avoid an awkward social moment. I have a theory that Deadwood came about under similar circumstances and was originally slated to be about Lumberjacks until the head writer choked while giving the pitch.

Now see a western ABOUT lumberjacks... that's rather intriguing....
