Writing vs Muffin death match

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wb3j2m31S6U&feature=relatedNicholas Cage does a good job of portraying a tortured yet talented screenwriter in the movie “Adaptation.” Voiceover of his internal dialogue faithfully chronicles the inner sufferings that often accompany the writing life.

The video above is one of many scenes that illustrate his struggle to write a screenplay that he is absolutely blocked on. Real screenwriter Charlie Kaufman includes a powerful and hilarious scene with Cage succumbs to attending a despised Robert McKee screenwriting workshop out of desperation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2fz_elzjF4&feature=related

Adaptation is a recommended film to watch when you are avoiding writing but trying to rationlize that it’s OK because you are watching a movie about getting over writing block.

Find out if he defeats the muffin, and writes the screenplay.
