Everyone wrote this using the OWC timeline, so...
I'm guessing, (using usual OWCs as a guide) Writer's Choice might be due around Friday, 4th June.
Don can correct me if I'm a bit off course there.

Don will email the ballot.

Ditto to your last point, Owen. A bigger turnout than I thought.

I'm noticing a lot of war themed scripts this time around too.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I've read and reviewed a few. Going to take a break till tomorrow to clear my head. You do have to concentrate to get these scripts but so far the majority of the ones I've read have been superb. The experimental narrative puts a new spin on everything, even basic ideas seem fresher. I see now why it's quite a popular format.

Through most of them (thank goodness cause I have a busy week ahead).

Some very interesting stories so far. A very nice mixture of themes and premises. Open genre is such a delight in OWCs from a reading perspective.

I think we are on the cusp of a new era in those "rules" of screenwriting. I think there were around four scripts that played with fonts/pictures on title pages or in the script. I'm a fan. It just adds entertainment value.

A reminder... in a good way.

You all have until Friday, 4th June midnight edt.
Ballots have been sent out.

And Don will put the clock up soonish anyway.

So plenty of time to read and review in a semi-leisurely way.

Phew. I've only read five so far and some required a second read, and my notes are twice as long as usual. There's a lot to dig into this round, not just the stories and the writing but how the format was used and how effective it was. I think it's worth it as a learning experience, and some will probably make fantastic short films, but it's real work.
