Please choose a genre for us instead of this open genre stuff. Challenge us to write out of our comfort zones instead of letting us choose our preferred genre. Just a thought cuz a lot of these have been open genre lately and thatís not much of a challenge, IMO.

My hot tip: The shorter OWC scripts were a breeze to read and critique, and filmmakers seem to prefer them, budget and otherwise...
Just saying.

Has there ever been an OWC where the genre is Action?

I was a big fan of the quickie challenge last year, I think that's what it was called.

Loved the shorter stories. Much easier to read.

Like the idea of all doing the same genre as well.

Not sure... I do know it's been a long time between RomCom/Drama. The last one we had we also had to write lyrics to a song -  music was supplied. An unfavourable genre with some but the entries from most were very entertaining and a nice change of pace.

If there is one, it would be my first OWC - I am both excited and terrified

OWCs


Heaven when you do well.

Hell when you fail.


I think some good advice here is to not take bad reviews personally. It will be your choices on this occasion that are being questioned, not your credentials as a writer. Well, from most of us anyway.

I wouldn't know about your OWC comment, Dustin, since the next one will be my first attempt at one, though I do know for a fact the final two sentences from your comment are false overstatements.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean as I haven't exaggerated anything... nor have I falsely done so. What is a false exaggeration?  Wouldn't it be defined as not being an exaggeration at all? But then why bother writing it if you don't believe it is? Very strange and too difficult for me to decipher. Could you be more clear?

Yeah, I'd prefer a defined genre, but I don't like a short page limitation at all.

Bring it on!  I need to write something!!!


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

Since this thread exists - Can someone please inform me of proper OWC etiquette?

As in, reviewing the entries (including my own entry as to not inadvertently highlight which entry is mine), and scoring the entries.

Thank you

Matt
