I'm pleased  to report that in Alice's last outing, competition wise, she's the runner up in The Nashville screenplay competition, drama section.

She's done me well, time to hand her over to Janet for STS if she will take her?

I would love to see her filmed, even if the subject matter is tough.

A beautiful girl born at SS., care of the OWC!

Cheers all

I don't think anyone who read it can actually ever forget it!!  In a good way...

Yes, the subject matter is harsh, but, OMG I just got an idea as I wrote that.  

Okay focus, then diverge....

It would make a great script and will certainly shed a few tears.

BILL,
I have an idea, perhaps the first one ever....  Be nice people....

Okay, why don't you contact abuse companies.  They might be interested in doing it b/c it is such a wonderful piece.  And I can think that anyone who has been abused (if shown that video) might show signs and perhaps your video can save one person from further abuse in schools.  It could be a great psychology piece.  They are looking for stuff like that.  

And psychologically speaking, the story is accurate.  I don't know if you saw Inside Out, but, psychologically speaking, that was extremely accurate too.  Sorry, I got side-tracked again.  Damn meds...  I am legally high....

Okay, back now, If you want some help in locating places that deal with abused children that might have the funds to create this wonderful story.  

Best of luck on this
Oh, and congrats bud.  You're a very solid writer!!

Dan

Thanks all

I think Alice is probably my high tide mark in term of quality, so its nice to see her successful.

I have now added a link to the latest draft.

It's a funny one, i would love to see it filmed, but then again I'm not sure i would want to watch it !!!

Based on something DanC said about this in the upcoming OWC thread I decided to give this a read.

WOW, WOW, WOW.

This script is a thing of beauty. In my approximately 3 months on SS I have read about 70 shorts. This is hands down the best.

This is going to stick with me for awhile.

I literally had goosebumps.

If there is anyone who hasn't read this, do yourself a favour and read it immediately.

Just WOW!

I absolutely agree with you, Warren. This is one of absolutely the best shorts out of the ones I read.
I also would recommend the shark entry by Marnie Mitchel Lister. That one stuck with me as well. It's not intense, but it's something very very good. Look for the shark OWC - it's not the elevator OWC. And the entry was the writer's choice for the OWC.

Thanks Warren for the kind words. I am very proud of Alice and doubt I will write another one which packs such a punch.

The version you read wasn't quite the one that entered the OWC, as I added the external scene, but it is the version that almost won Nashville, Bluecat etc

And..... ITS AVAILABLE TO FILM.... Hint hint

Joking side I have always hoped this would be filmed as its largely two people in one location. The external scene could be adapted. I could even see the opening and the music to use, with 'consent of course ('burn the witch' by Radiohead, if you care to know) but so far no takers. I discussed it with one producer but it's the kind of script that you must 'want' to film. A bit dark for most.

And its ... AVAILABLE to film. Ahem.

Let's see what this OWC throws up as, like that challenge, it is a very contained location.

Do I know how to pick them or what?

Yeah, when I read this, I was BLOWN away.  I almost cried and was right there with the little girl.  Bill really wrote a classic.

I just wish it'd get filmed and get hooked up with abused children.  You might not make money going that route (other then the "standard fees), but, the influence that filmed story might give you in the abused world would be something close to immortal, at least IMO.

Thanks for reading all of the other comments and taking a chance on something that I said.

Bill, I'm currently pointing someone in your direction, won't say more than that but here's hoping. Be so good to see this made. Have you ever thought about producing it yourself?

DanC, not a problem. It was just fantastic and the ending, I know what you mean about being right there, I just wanted to take her hand.

Chilling stuff.
