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.

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.

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'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?

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

Basically, Matthew, don't leave your score in the post, don't specify which entry is yours and do your best to keep the criticism to a level of something that the writer could use to actually improve the script. That's your basic etiquette for the OWC.

What about an OWC that is limited to a single location and just one character. Genre: Action.

That would be challenging.

Action with one character? What about a RomCom with only one character?

A one man romance and he thinks he's the funniest guy in the world. It's called 'Jeff'.

It has to be a love triangle challenge but the twist is that two of three in the triangle are sex robots.

Donít forget to make the main (only?) character an orphan.

So, rule clarification: does a single-word line count as an orphan, such as

Oy vey, I smell a George Glass Brady Bunch themed OWC coming on. For those of you who didnít have the misfortune of watching the Brady Bunch growing up, George Glass was the mysterious boyfriend Jan made up because she was jealous that her high school crush was more interested in Marsha than her.  I am not ashamed to admit Iíve seen that episode more than once growing
Up.

George Glass also had a brief (non-)appearance in the surprisingly good feature film from the 90s.



...which does not get me closer to figuring out what that clue means.

I'd be happy with 5-10 pages.

Also, it would be cool to do a monthly five pager like MP.  We have the numbers to do a regular comp/challenge.

SitCom from the 70s, which reportedly ended when the actor for the dad quit because the show was just too stupid for him to continue working there.

The actress for mom dated the actor for the oldest son (fortunately this was NOT one of the sitcoms that used actors actually related to one another).

The clue in the page header seems like ďthird timeís the charmĒ although also note that The Brady Bunch family did have three daughters. Might be a weird reference to the youngest daughter.

Yep, I agree, pretty clever, Gary, and more of us shoulda sussed: Jan, as in January. The broken heart symbol is made with ALT+3 and there's two of them, three plus three is six, but then a full heart, hmm... Obviously a date cause Don's written 'on'  and then: questions will be answered. Probably goes to theme as well. Valentine's Day is too far away. Could we have another hint please?

I've stared at the keyboard for 30 minutes to come up with a response and I can't come up with anything.  Too much, I give it away.  Too little, and it causes confusion.  

Had I known that anyone other than bert, me, and mr. blonde would actually want to be mod, I would have asked LC a lot sooner.  

So the hint is:

"One should take a long, hard look at what LC has written. Time is not on your side. "

Well, the Unicode values for the broken heart and heart are 1F494 and 1F493, respectively, which doesn't tell me anything. I can't figure out how to enter emoji using my keyboard, so the shortcuts are of no use to me.

If it's a simple cipher, it'd have to be JANxxy, and the numbers that make the most sense are 119 for Jan 1, '19. Obviously, we didn't get our answer on Jan 1. Setting x as zero, y could be any digit, but we didn't get an answer on Jan 1-9.

A more complicated cipher would take the heart halves as distinct elements, giving us JANxyxyz. Taking the last two as 19 again, that's JAN x1x '19, where the only x that makes sense is a zero. But we didn't get an answer on Jan 10, either. These leaves out the possibility of z being equal to x+y.

If it's as LC said and it's some kind of sum, then we have JAN x+x+y, which could be 3+3+6 (since a whole heart is two halves) for JAN 12. Could theoretically be 4+4+8 for JAN 16 or 5+5+10 for JAN 20 or 6+6+12 for JAN 24 or 7+7+14 for JAN 28. Those all seem unlikely.

Since "time is not on our side" I will go with JAN 12.

Huh?  Trust you, Frank.   You're like my hubby - majoring in English is just not sufficient, a mathematician freak as well.

That said I wonder if I'm overthinking it (probably) by adding Brady to Jan + heart equals bradycardia - usually defined as a resting heart rate that is below 60 beats per minute. Usual is between 60 and one hundred beats.

Do anything with those numbers? Ticking clock apparently.
P.S. J & B equals 12  on the alphabet.

Maybe itís much simpler than weíre making it ó two broken hearts become one (21). So on Jan 21 your questions will be answered. But thatís probably not it because OWCís are always announced on Fridayís, right?  So strike two for me.

I do have an alternate theory about how to determine the timing of the announcement. Iím off the airport in a bit, and it will be 16 hours before I get home, followed by me collapsing in bed.

Therefore the announcement should come in the next 24 hours

*Looking "a head" two broken hearts become one.

*Janus, the god of two faces, looks ahead to the future and back to the past as he makes a decision to break people's hearts in two and not hold the OWC until Valentines Day.

*Jan has broken two hearts, but will she break a third?

*Looking ahead, a half hearted attempt at finding love twice in the same month leads to a full attempt in February and Valentines Day becomes a national holiday because of it. Woo-hoo!

i think it's most likely Stevie's broken heart when he tried to have sex with Marilyn Monroe's skeleton, and sadly, his 3 inch member cuoldn't even get through the bones...and then he was thrown in jail anyway.

It's Eve Plumb, Chris.

She played Jan Brady on The Brady Bunch.

Don't see the resemblance to Glenn Close myself, but apparently some do.

We had a Valentine's Day OWC a few years ago. I even rewrote that entry into something pretty good, but too expensive to justify. Now that my schedule is a little more relaxed, I hope to be in.

So the January OWC is going to be a Valentine's Day themed OWC?

I'll try, but writing romance is a bit outside my expertise. No one I ever dated (up to and including the one I married) was ever hung up on all the courtship rituals. Most stress I ever had leading up to a Valentine's Day was remembering the names of all my classmates in Third Grade.

Dammit, I was so close on guessing on the clues!  I had the right week, and even said itís always announced on a Friday. I feel like I should get a mug for just being in the ballpark.

Also, Iím going to enter, even though my wife claims my idea of a romantic gesture consists of putting the toilet seat down after using the loo.

FUNNY!

Even funnier is that I'm the one who preaches about the toilet seat being down over here! My girlfriend has gotten a Hell of alot better, but not perfect still, and when we have grandkids over, the front bathroom toilet seat ain't down unless I close it myself.

Also, my girlfriend doesn't seem to be impressed when I give her kitchen gadgets, a vacuum, or other cleaning tools for Christmas.  Am I not romantic?

I'll be happy if I can pull my current "serious effort in motion" draft into existence.

We share the same feelings with regard to "sappy". I just can't stomach it either and that says a lot because I'm a "too soft-too sentimental-person-" at heart.

So I don't get it.

But as far as writing out of genre?

One thing I do is try and challenge myself by studying genres that I myself don't want to write...

...Not that I'm going to write that genre, but rather, try and put myself inside that point of view. I think that challenge serves a purpose.

I'm not some kind of love/romance teetotaler, and in fact have boy-meets-girl plot points in a couple of my scripts, but none of them is anywhere near a traditional romance (for example, Glass House has a female serial killer who finally meets a guy who measures up to her high expectations... not holding my breath for the Hallmark Channel to call).

If this is a romantic theme.  The things I say are pure cheese.  In the beginning she said it wasnít her thing.  But deep down, I know she loves it.  Or at least I tell myself that.  On the page itíll be pure cheese.

Totally agree with you on studying what you don't want to write. I am one of those writers that still has not found my niche ...but I hate most of all writing comedy but I often read it. Can learn to swim by treading deep water. (long as there are not hungry sharks)

I would just humbly ask that the powers that be make this a "normal" OWC -- i.e., one week to enter, one week to review, then results.  Maybe shorter number of pages to make it easier for us to review as many as possible.

Just my two cents.

The "save the date" was for a three-week period, so sounds like this will be fairly close.

Not sure why I'm posting this here. It has absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming OWC at all. None. Zero. No chance. I promise, but it is funny...

Hmm, I wonder...

Wasn't a huge fan of M.Mc, but this movie won me over. Love physical comedy and she does it so well.

Looking forward to the announcement, Pia. Very curious about this one especially on the back of a comment which was quickly withdrawn. Yes, I saw it...

I deleted it because the video link was not the right one.  

I hope you guys show up for this OWC. You all have requested a challenge, so that's what it'll be.

An Identity Theft OWC would be writing in someone else's style, which would make the who-wrote-what guessing portion particularly entertaining.

Mine would be pretty easy to guess -- it would be the one with all the negative reviews.

The only place where "EDT" might apply in January is Peru, and they wisely avoid the whole Daylight Savings Time fiasco.

Perhaps EST?

Lol!!!

It will be announced 11pm EST today.

You guys have asked for a traditional OWC and you will get it.

You've also asked for more of a challenge. You'll get that too.

See you then.

You can't go against the sanctity of the timer. It is irrefutable. It IS the law.

...unless you're a little late submitting...

But otherwise, it IS the LAW!

Resetting the timer was a smart move.

I probably would have just hit the snooze bar eighty times.
