    Hey @Dave ,

    I really like this story and the plot as you have it here is really well thought out. I am curious why you choose to use the prompt as “Time Out” versus “Time Inn”.. are you going to incorporate the “Inn” as a juxiposition in any way to the phrasing you are using?

    Looking forward to seeing how this comes together in scripting and how you will tell/show the reader that she is stressed about the impending birthday. 🙂

    Thanks for posting!

    Hey D,

    Honestly not planning on using the Inn moniker, but I do think we got to the idea with Time Inn as the prompt. We’re leaning to time out to tie it into the Time Out in sports, like a pause in the action, and if anything, its more that Morgan is putting “time in” to the Time Out.
