Here is the timetable for the October, 2008 One Week Challenge.

October 10, 2008: The Topic is Release into the wild.
October 17, 2008: A 13 Page Script is due. (properly formatted) 11:59 pm edt on Friday 10/17
October 24, 2008: Who wrote what revealed.
October 31, 2008: Release of the iScript of the selected script.

This isn't a contest.  This is a writing exercise to see if you can knock out a good, 12 page script on the topic and genre selected.  It isn't a contest.  There are no winners.  (Well, if you take the challenge, you are, in effect, a winner).  One script is selected through a mysterious process to be audio performed.

But you never know.  There could be a dark horse genre and theme selector this time around.  It could be someone you'd never think of.  Someone who may have already posted in this thread.

It's an enigma, I tell you.  An enigma.  And only a select few are privy to it.

This year's genre is going to be mockumentary.  You can thank Pia for this idea.  Don has already approved.  Mockumentary.

The genre is being posted now so people will have some time to learn about how to write one.

Mockumentary.  Yessiree.  Mockumentary.

Considering we had horror for last year's October OWC, I doubt this one will be horror again. But, can we try and pick a theme that'll get us Simply Scripters into the spirit of Halloween?





Sean

P.S> I guess even if the theme is Halloween-less, I can still connect it to Halloween. Boy do I love Halloween. Halloween....


Halloween.

Actually, the genre wasn't horror last year... though people's reaction to it was.  It was the pumpkin carving one (I think the theme was drama).  That caused a shit storm of biblical proportions.

This year, if you don't like the theme (or the genre) of the OWC, then don't do it.

Excellent! The last OWC was what made me join Simply Scripts. Can't wait to see the new genre/topic.

It's been a while since I've done an OWC. I'll have to make sure I get involved this time around.

Might have to take part this time, if I can fit it in to my busy schedule. oh wait you're not meant to say if you're taking part are you...maybe I will, maybe I won't?

I can't wait for this. I missed the previous one by a day or so.  I hope I can come up something now.
