Quoted from Dreamscale


Last OWC, I asked my girlfriend to read and comment.  She was furious with me for days and we actually got into several fights after scripts were released and I told her peeps were offended by mine - she said she told me and then proceeded to go into 1 of those, "You never listen to me" rants.

Never again!




I thought your script was funny as Hell.

Quoted from Warren



I saw someone mention that their wife was going to read their entry. Do many people get opinions from their friends/family about OWC entries?

I had 3 friends read it, all liked it, but I'm never sure if theyíre just being kind.


I sometimes have my wife read. She's a freelance marketing writer, and she's got a good creative eye. But, most times she's too busy actually making money, so I don't bother her with my non-revenue-generating fare.

I will almost always verbally walk her through my story over dinner or something. She's good at punching holes in my plots... a trait that doesn't always strengthen the marriage. (Especially when she's right.)

I started walking her through this one and she made me stop. Is that a good sign?

I should also add... I sometimes share scripts with my mom. But, it's not for true feedback, as she never gives negative feedback. Though, she came close on UNRELIABLE WITNESS. I don't think she approved.

On my last challenge script FOR NOW (formerly BLESSING), she begged me to expand it out and turn it into a Hallmark script. God bless moms.

(Sidenote: My dad, 75, is heavy into Hallmark movies. Twenty years a cop... now he's an expert on Hallmark. Literally can run you through the plot of any movie they show. He watches them over and over.)

We're lightweights... neither one of us like horror. Our idea of horror is A Quiet Place... so, that tells you our level of sophistication in the genre.

Point is... don't read anything into her reaction. Horror fans likely won't feel the same!

I wasn't too much into horror either until a few years ago, when a friend introduced me into the genre.

Iím no expert, but this haven't stopped me from writing a few short horror scripts. Last week, I was notified that one of them is a finalist in the Crimson Screen Horror Film Festival. Not that it means something, but it's a start.

You're a good writer, Paul. I'm sure youíll do good.

Thanks. It's been fun writing the script.

Congrats on the festival placement... that's awesome.

I'm out. Life throwing much interference my way this week (mostly positive). It's a great challenge though (well done, Zack!). Definitely curious to see what folks come up with.

Hubby (also a writer) is my go-to reader.

If I get a: Hmm, yeah, not bad I know I don't have to start all over again.  
Keeps me on my toes by damning with faint praise.

A day to go everyone!
Hope things are shaping up for all involved.

My brother usually reads my stuff for me. And he always hates it. Lol

I can't wait to dive into these scripts. Just 27 more hours until the deadline!

I have one adoring fan I usually let read these, and itís always high praise. I donít do it for me.

I used to let my wife read them. Sheís a good story analyst and her grammar is impeccable. But that stopped a long while ago, sheís busy and I donít write genres she enjoys.  

Now, you folks are the only critiquing for these and itís plenty. I tend to use the OWCs as a starting point, and the ones that hold up to your keen eyes and sharp tongues sometimes elevate to something more. And thatís a great thing.

Hmm...come to think of it, none of them have been sold or produced.

Still nothing on the page...not even a FADE IN or a title.

That's OK, this is how I guess I must like to roll.

Trying to write story in my head now.  One again, I have certain liquids and solids to thank.  


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Hoping to get something in after I finish massaging these nice big Rams offensive linemen with baby oil.

I may do a script for this challenge as well



Good to see your priorities are rock hard, buddy!
