WRITERS WRITER...LITERARY PARTNERS FEUD ~ We Didn't Leave Ya Hangin'

A:  Where are they?
Z:   How am I supposed to know?
A:  You told them to come today, right?
Z:  (Zi looks at his coffee stained, smudge calendar, turns his head one way and then the other)  Errrr, yeah, yeah, today.
A:  Guess I should say something, you think?  
Z:  (Nods seriously while taking quick looks out the closest window.
A:  Betcha you thought we totally forgot about our alter egos DONA PENZ TATTLE, ESQ., who tattles on every naughty hunk or hotties she can find, and her cohort dashing ASSOCIATE WRYE BALDERDASH, who spies on the devilish divine and their upcoming Tattle and Wrye Award. 
Z:  Well, we are here to tell you, they have not disappeared nor has the award.  They have just been battling.... errr we mean debating on just the right book that has just the right chemistry that merits the title....    Wait.... wait.... wait....  They're here.  Yea!

The pair of Literary Leap Lovers greet their peers, and then inch closer to the curtain and peek into the readership.  
T:    I'm not going out there.  You are.  I like my little leap into books not on to stages.
W:  It would do you good to face some real characters rather than just fake one.
T:    Are you calling real people characters?
W:   Where do you think we get our ideas from?
The couple looks back at Angelica and Zi who are taping their feet to get them moving toward the state.  They gulp, take a breath and a step forward.

W:  You should be announcing this. (whispers, still backstage)
T:    Nope, you were the inspired one.  My title was boring.
W:  It was.... errr... creative...
T:   Yours was much more so.  (She flits out her hand toward the stage)  People are waiting.  (She gives him a little shove.)
(Before he can stop himself, Wrye stumbles into the spotlight.  He blinks, polishes his top hat with his tux's coat sleeve, places it perfectly on his head, looking wonderfully dapper and debonaire and opens his mouth but as he is ready to speak, he is interrupted.
T:  (Tattle appears next to him.  {Angelica had given the little lady a double hand thrust toward the stage and she grabbed onto Wrye's arm to keep from falling)  Errr, ummm... so without further pomp or tittle-twaddle I present to our readers, aliens, creatures, and folks of diversifying natures, my very own associate Wrye Balderdash, who will explain our award, its qualifications and announce the long awaited title!
W:  (tittle-twaddle he mouths at Tattle then clears his throat, grins a sheepish crooked grin and broadcasts with all the panache of an olde world court crier)  First and foremost my dear fellow readers. A bit over a year ago, we began reviewing some exciting, entertaining and engaging books from the CHAMPAGNE BOOKS GROUP.  (A few applauds erupt and he offers several polite nods, perhaps a few two many, and Tattle gives him a gentle back tap to get him started again)  So, as I am certain you have notices over several various weeks we posted seven reviews and the final will be appearing in two weeks time, giving all (and us he mutters) time to fully emerge ourselves in the totality and plot lines of all the books thus far.  Hence allowing all to figure out which book will best fit our well-thought through, out and about, inside and upside down award!
T:   Ut oh....
W:  What do you mean.... Ut Oh?
T:    Ummm, we ran out of time.  
W:  Time?  No one said anything about a time limit.  Before we leave all you eager readers, we'd like to announce the title of our first annual award on the author of one of the books we have reviewed.
T:  You can imagine how difficult it will be to choose among these outstanding stories, and excellent craftsmanship."
W:  Almost as challenging as choosing a name for the award.  Wrye, with peacockish pride, pokes Tattle in the ribs with his elbow.)  Tell them. (Then without giving her a chance blurts out.)



THE FABULOUS FICTION FABRICATOR FEATHER IN THE FEDORA, WRYE TOAST FROM BALDERDASH AND TATTLE... JAM OPTIONAL AWARD, DENOTING THAT BALDERDASH BABBLES AND TATTLE PRATTLES AND GOOD WRITERS WRITE WELL...

TAA DAA!  WITH BOW AND CURTSY

T:   Wait a second, m'winded friend, that was three or more of the titles we were considering?

W:  And since we couldn't make up our minds, I think this is perfect."
T:  You think?  I don't think so. Then again....
T:  (Tattle mutters) "Oh boy, we're in trouble!"
W  (He grins his crooked, over-confident grin)  "It is soooo us!"   
T:   (Tattle chases after him as he leaves the stage.)

Angelica and Zi exchange glances and finally shrug.  

A:  Ummmm, well that's all folks, until next time, keep reading!
