Author Bumping with D. D. Scott
Author Bumping is a talent I come by naturally. I have literally fallen into a full body bump with some pretty big name writers. These unplanned slams usually occur with hilarious results. That being said… I’ve decided to open the gates of Barb’s Wire and let other fledgling authors share their encounters with big name authors or celebrities.
First up from the Indie Authors scene is the sweetly modest and soft-spoken DeeDee Scott. I’ve invited her here today to… Omph! That hurt.
DD..: Hmmmppphhh…”sweetly modest and soft-spoken”, my arss! How many sweetly modest and soft-spoken chicks would agree to be buckled into this damn harness, and then, on command, jump-off a gigantic ladder?!
B… What the heck? Is that you up there, DeeDee?
DD…: I thought you wanted me to re-live my Peter Pan’s Wendy glory days?! That’s what you said...c’mon D. D., it will be fun. Just put-on that harness one more time. Yes, I know it hurts. But think of all the fun you’ll have, provided your rigging peeps don’t once again slam you into a set-piece. So yeah...once upon a time, I was Wendy in a huge stage production of Peter Pan. Sorry about slamming into you, Barb. I thought you wanted a full body bump. Here, let me help you up. Yeah, watch out for my flying wire. I wouldn’t want you to choke yourself on it. That would be a real shame.
B… DeeDee! my foot’s caught in your harness. Gosh darn. Whoa... you’re pulling me up with you.
DD…: Hell, I can’t believe you can still get your feet up that high! Actually, I’m impressed. But anyhoo…oh boy...shit...hang on tight, Girlfriend. You’re about to see the world from my perspective. Can u believe little Sandy Duncan flew in a harness just like this one? ‘Course she was and I am actually in the damn harness. I’m not sure how you’re gonna fair just hangin’ on to it! Sucks to be you! Kinda puts a new twist, though, on your WENDY AND THE LOST BOYS UpUGo, doesn’t it?! Sorry…bad joke, given your current height from the ground and all. And trust me, just like your Charlie Hook, I doubt an Ace bandage or duct tape are gonna save ya now! Up…Up…Up we go!!!
B: My Wendy flies in a helicopter, but this isn’t bad. It’s sorta like a hot air balloon but painful … oops my butt is slipping. I’m falling!
B… *waves* Off she goes like a rough diamond in the sky. “Bye, DeeDee! Thanks for stopping by to launch WENDY AND THE LOST BOYS.
This wasn’t exactly what I envisioned for my first Invitational Author Bumping.
