Congrats on Writers' Choice, Marnie, was an excellent script and well-deserving of the top spot!

And congrats to Robert and Pia for nipping at her heels.

And to the rest who really brought their A-game!

Congratulations, Marnie for Terrapin Station. Good job. Tough challenge, but I enjoyed reading them.

Congrats, Marnie! Not bad for a self-professed dodgy entry.  

Pia, I can pick yours now from a 'tell' in your writing.
Great work!

So many entries I loved this go around.
Channel 57 (Gary) really tickled my funny bone, as did John's Cornament of Champions.
Race Wars received an Excellent from me too.

Ooh, and you sly dogs, Blondie. And Zack.
A really inventive entry.

Congratulations Marnie!!!!

I had Terrapin pegged by either you or Gary. I know you come down here every once in awhile and I knew Gary was just down here. I also knew it had to be written by someone not too young. It was my favorite in this OWC.  

Mine? Should be read as deadpan and probably more liked by people who like drier humor over typical American humor.

Libby, do tell, what is my tell?

Warren, thanks for making a challenge that made me take part. It's been a while.

Sex and violence. The only reason I didn't pick you for Thrilled To Kill was because it seemed too... you, so I thought it was a red herring. Lol.

Wow! That's surprising. Really though I ended up in the middle somewhere. Thanks you guys! And congrats Pia and Robert! This was a great challenge and I can honestly say I liked every script.

Thanks again Warren and Don. Hope we have more during the week cus I miss out the weekend challenges cus of my work schedule.

So yeah, Pia...I lived in Fla for like 7 years and now my mom does. She just moved into one of those 55+ communities and these people are always up in each other's business and feuding. And...there is an endangered turtle right across from my moms house. Lol. They have an enclosure for it, but it can get out and she sees it walking on the sidewalk sometimes.


ZERO tolerance for RUDE people.

Marnie, congrats!  I really liked your entry and was my highest rated as I recall, so good for you!  Also, like your new profile pic (at least it looks new to me)!

Warren, great challenge -- really made the wheels turn a lot.  Need more of those types of challenges!


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.
