Some Things to remember:
1. We have a couple of first time writers. I think they've done a pretty good job for his/her first submission.
2. I read all of the early submissions and if they deviated from the "in and/or around elevator" I asked for revisions.
3. However, later scripts I didn't have time to read so, later entries may not adheare as strictly to the "in and/or around elevator"
4. In hindsight, I wish I had left them as they were and let the discussion board members decide.
5. There is one script that did and didn't meet the requirements, but it was a so out of the box interpretation of the theme that I had to include it.
Update: This "intimate" gathering had 36 entries. 35 scripts were posted. One withdrew (but may go back in). Behind Closed Doors
