Wow, some surprises here!

Dave, you wrote Ash Hole?? I never would have guessed that. Well done.
Marnie, yours was one of my faves. Along with yours, Matthew. Think you've proven yourself enough, time to take a back seat, 'k?

Checking on this. Script is still up.
It may be a mistaken omission.

Yep. Nailed it!

For anybody that cares... (crickets, crickets)... I used characters from a sitcom pilot that I wrote a couple years back. (I actually wrote 5 episodes.) I hadn't visited the characters for awhile and thought I'd throw them into a situation to see what they would do. So, if you really want to get to know these guys, just let me know........... (more crickets.)



Some great scripts this time. My top scorer was Bygones. Blind Justice was right up there as well. as were a couple others. I'll check my list and give proper kudos!

(Finally, just wanted to throw it out that I just optioned KITTENS to a student filmmaker in Hong Kong. We'll see what he does with it. I kept the rights open for other student filmmakers. That challenge was perfect for creating content for students. I bet a bunch of 'em get made.)

Checked my list....

Sea of Stars (please explain the 3 stars, Rene), Ash Hole, Deepest Darkest Waters, Monster Rock, Somewhere Beyond the Sea, Feeling Justified (you didn't fool me, Zack!)... all made an impact for me.

Good stuff, everybody!

I have no idea why I wrote what I wrote. I pride myself on originality. I'm sure 90% of what I write is something nobody's seen before (in my mind, of course). But I fucked up. And after 6 vodka sodas (some of which I sweated off on the way home), I decided to go the first and most unimaginative, most cliche way possible. And I hate sci-fi, I hate watching it, I hate writing it... unless it's either genius or silly. So, I went silly. And the second I hit "submit", I hated myself. I didn't even read what I wrote. I wrote it, sent it... and apparently I wrote "white suntan"... when I could've sworn I said "white suntan lotion on his nose". WTF. I got home after working at a bar all night w/ 5 hours left and all I wanted to do was go to sleep. So, I wrote some bullshit. And I regret it. Even if my shit doesn't land, at least it's usually well written. Not this round!

Depends on what the criteria is for the next round, but I hate putting out shit that I fucking hate. We'll see if I continue. But that round sucked for me. I hated it while I was writing it but all I wanted to do was finish it and go to bed and hope for the best. I feel like this challenge exposed me as a failed writer.

'white suntan' ... lotion.
I'm sorry, I feel for you, Michael, but you're also cracking me up.  

Oh, and the last line about failed writer is just plain wrong anyway.
And I'm sure you'll prove that in the final round.

In hindsight, I should've at least read what I wrote. But I knew it was bad after I hit submit and was even afraid to read the comments. I might retire from writing after this. That fucking SUCKED. And now that script exists and represents me. After round 3, I'm deleting that shit and having it wiped off the Earth.
