This is my first attempt at writing a OWC. How does one submit their OWC script for reviews and scoring?

Here's the link, Hank.

Pia has set out the details, page count, theme etc., on page 1 of this thread.
The countdown timer for deadline is also at the top of the discussion page.

You're not finished writing yet, are you?  

P.S. 'There will be a Review Page E-mailed to you for you to score the scripts you read.  Please only give scores to scripts that you have read. Please do not rate scripts in your review'.

Thanks. Yes, I recently finished about an hour ago. I began an outline of the short script yesterday morning and began writing the actual script immediately after the criteria was announced, and was able to apply around half of the outline to this challenge.

Btw, I just checked that link and the only genre option is Horror, Thriller, Suspense, Noir.

I don't think Romantic Horror is an option.  

Needs changing.  I'm sure Pia will get on it so best ignore that.

Okay,  Hank. I was just kidding that you'd written it already.

Be aware of this then:

You can revise your script as many times as you wish up until February 1st 11:59 EST.

I will probably do some revisions throughout the week if any new and worthwhile ideas pop into my head. At the moment I think my script is somewhat lacking in the comedic and also the romantic aspects of the challenge. Although I found it tough to create a cohesive short script when having a 5-10 page limit, but I enjoyed trying my darndest to accomplish that.

Rom-coms are my least favorite type of movies, so I googled and according to wikipedia, it's this.

Romantic comedy is a genre with light-hearted, humorous plotlines centered on romantic ideas, such as how true love is able to surmount most obstacles.

Well, this is gonna be tough.

Quick question, you said roses, chocolate, and something red must be a part of the plot. Can the red thing be a rose? Or is that cheating?

Something else. It doesn't have to play a big part, just shouldn't be a background item like a red pillow on a couch or such.

Henb is done already?  Huh?  How does that work?

My advice...don't think you're done already.  Read it over out loud...over and over.

My advice to everyone else, bring your A Game, cuz The Kid is gonna be all over this one!



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

It took me five hours straight, though the first draft is now done.

Thanks for the advice, I will read it over. I have already read it over a couple times, and am sure there's room for improvement, I just don't know what revisions to make yet.

Just make sure you get rid of all your orphans, because otherwise, no matter how good it is, you'll be disqualified.
