Real names aren't revealed initially, could influence the voting!


But if my discussion board name is on the script, won't people know?

On ya, Dave.  
...Oh you lucky dog. Hawaii sounds great. Think I'll go some day.



You would think - I am more of a city person - so, other than the grandsons - it's a bit of a snoozer.

Quoted from Max


I don't think I'm good enough to stretch the concept out over more than that.

I've just finished the whole thing and even that... I felt like I was padding out the dialogue.


Don't pad. It will show. So long as you have five pages you have an eligible short. Being able to know what to cut is an essential trait.

Don't put your discussion board name on the script. That's for Don's use when he reveal the names of the writers.

Done mine, sent it in.

It's awful but at least it doesn't have my name attached, I just wanted to bang it out and speed-run it... I got a lot to do over these next 2 days so I didn't have too much time to spend on it.

Good luck to the rest of y'all, not sure how many entries are gonna' flood in but I'll be sure to leave some feedback for you guys, as much as I can.

Fengius max - from your post per day you've been around a while. Makes me wonder....

tips

don't put your name on it

don't tell us the page length - we can then guess you

don't break any of Jeff's rules - he gets grumpy

don't use the name cowboy sam or madam putz, or something, I've forgotten

don't expect an easy ride - the OWC is a tough assignment

but...do

expect to learn...fast

back to story

does anybody else spot the same issues arise with their OWC entries?

Mine, trying to fit too much in. Too complicated. same old same old.

my reliable wife read mine tonight.

you know you've got issues when she pauses with what she thinks.  

but, i repeat, its good to write.  i've enjoyed the challenge and whilst i will be beaten up, it has made me reflect on my joy for writing. to challenge the mind.

next week it won't be so nice to be read, but hey, thats why we turn up

good old SS

I haven't been around too long, I joined in 2009 and have been a lurker pretty much since then... but all of a sudden I've had some sort of renewed passion for writing... I just enjoy it... no matter what the quality.

I try and follow all the rules ect. but to me... it's just about creating something which I can call mine, no matter how bad... it was me who came up with something and no-one else.

Either way, I'm looking to contribute more and leave more feedback.

I'm not a naturally gifted writer, I read scripts... and I try and replicate what I see... I try and adapt a style... I try to write visually and not all fluffy.

I love this place tho, a lot of good work and lot of hidden gems floating about. I love the screenplay format... for me it's a more snappy straight to the point style of writing compared to a novel.

That's up for debate--Jeff is always out by page three, regardless of who wrote and what substance they were on while writing it.

That is not true, Darren.  But, if the script I'm reading is bad with the same mistakes over and over, yep, you can bet I'll be out...but I always will tell the writer why I'm out.

I hope to be much more gentle this OWC.  I really will be trying, and the tone of my feedback will not be assholish...I hope.

For the first time in OWC history, I'm actualy done before the final day.  I banged this out today, after coming up with the concept Tuesday, on a hike, and then writing it in my head on a hike yesterday.  Thank God for the hikes, or I'd be in deep shit, looking at a deadline I probably wouldn't make.

Will submit later tonight.  It's a first draft, but of course, there shouldn't be any errors.



Best of luck to all who enter.  And if you enter, please read all or as many of the other entries as you can.  It's really only fair.

Peace, brothers and sisters!!!


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

If we send in another draft before the end date, will the last one you submit go up?
