Well done to those who entered. No one expects a perfect script, the question is, to me anyway, would I wish to read more?

Congrats to those participating. If I could jump in for the 6wc, I might. But time is tight. I'll try to read everything as it helps me as well (are these posted yet?). I know it's not perfect, but as long as it hits the basics (opening image to set tone, something to hook the reader in first ten, scenes with 'layers', etc), you'll be fine. I'm a big believer in vomit drafts that has back bone and that requires multiple surgeries/jolts of lightning.

I think I know what he means. The way everyone is talking about how horrible their scripts are, doesn't exactly make us potential readers excited about your scripts.

I also think it was a bad idea to post the first 10 pages of your 7WC feature here. Why? Because if your first 10 pages truly sucks here. Who's going to want to go back and read your feature when you post it. Just saying...

Pia and Jeff,

That's my fault. I'm one of the peeps who posted that I wasn't happy with my script. Just the opposite, I love my sript. Saying that, I know that my script was written in a weeks time and it's going to have its problems and I still have 6 weeks to go but I always get nervous when someone reads something of mine and I can feel my anxiety kicking in. So sorry to you guys and to others who read my posts. + I was a little drunk last night but that's no excuse.

Everyone's not going to be happy with their 1st 10 pages. But, you can always rewrite it.

Hey Dirk, I don't see what the issue was.

Everyone of these has writers spouting off how they don't like their script, think its rushed, could be better, hate themselves etc etc

The reverse logic says that if I promote my script it will be better?

Besides, the first ten of a feature is a greater challenge, IMO, than a short. This is a site for learning, so lets do exactly that - except I bailed out of course, but I will read.

Looking forward to seeing these highly flawed scripts.

My script is one of the finest pieces of writing since  someone wrote "3 wise men followed a star"

Thinking about it, I am pleased with my first 10 pages.  

It contains goofy/raunchy humor - and a dose of viciousness to it.

It's not the best, but it'll do.

Also, I am looking forward very much to working with crookedowl and seeing if I have what it takes to co-write a script with another individual.

I think it's the old bait and switch maneuver.  We all bad-mouth our scripts to lower expectations, then bask in the glory when the great reviews start pouring in on our Oscar caliber efforts.  Except for mine, of course.

Haha, yeah maybe.  

I won't be here tonight when the scripts are posted.

I'll be out, busy, doing stuff.

I'll read/review tomorrow.

It would make it seem worse if the writer kept exclaiming how his script was the best script ever written. And usually if someone does chat up their script, it sucks major ass.

Although I do somewhat agree with the first 10 page statement, I think it's kind of beneficial for a new writer to get all the bs dealt with - so instead of writing a poor 100 page script, he'll only write a partially poor 100 page script.
