Har har har!

Don, you sly ol' devil, you!


Also, while I'm here, everyone please feel free to join in on the Skype chat tonight, and listen to some of your fellow members bash the choice of genre and theme without mercy.

The action begins at approximately, 8pm Central Time.

I was just thinking that 11:59EST sure came early this Friday, but I was fooled as well. This thread's going to have a lot of traffic before 11:59 actually hits. Of course, I on;y have to wait till 10:59 since I'm in central time. That means I get it at the same time as everyone else, but it FEELS an hour earlier.

Dang! Could they just release it already? I've been keeping quiet about it, but I've been waiting for the theme to be announced since day 1.

Well, I'm certainly pleased with both the topic and genre. This should be interesting....
I hope there's more than just "Alien" Invasions. Though that's the only type of invasion that comes to mind when I think "Horror". Though I suppose one could go back to the 50-60s movies with things like  Invasion of the Killer Ants/Leeches/Bees/etc. lol. Can't wait to read the entries as well as write my own. I would've thought this board would be more lively. Where is everyone?

Very nice.  I don't think there's ever been a challenge that specified two kids as pivotal parts of the story.  It'll be cool to see what everyone chugs out.

Not a bad topic at all. Has the potential for some genuine creativity if you think outside the box.

I just learned the genre this Saturday morning since I was working last night, but I'm happy to hear the genre. I think many of the young people will be especially pleased.

Although I'm not particular, I think this suits a wide "halloweeners" audience.

Yeah, interesting challenge. Should be a varied batch of scripts on offer.

The wiki page says YA is mainly aimed at people 12-18 years old, so are we aiming for scripts lower than an 18 certificate?

So does that mean we're gonna have a batch of scripts about sex, drugs and acne?

Anyone know of any good YA horror scripts to look at? I have a few ideas but am having a bit of difficulty deciding which most closely fits the parameters... or maybe I'll just give up and not even enter
