Quoted from Zack
My idea was about a stupid Vampire who is in love with the sun.


That sounds amazing! You should have ran with that - Would have been interesting to see how you would have incorporated roses and chocolates.

That was my biggest issue. Couldn't fit them into the plot. They were merely just props.

Could have had the vampire leave some chocolate outside as an "offering" to the Sun - but the Sun melts the chocolate, upsetting the vampire as he/she thinks the sun didn't like it

Roses - no idea

On a different note - When the challenge is over, and my entry gets absolutely ridiculed, am I allowed to stay anonymous?

No.

Are you being funny, Steven Clark?

Matt, yes, you can let Don know you want your name to remain anonymous before the reveal. Seen it before with the odd writer here and there. Bugged the heck outta me that I didn't know who wrote a certain something.

You can also request your script be removed too, if you want.

I was only joking - all my work gets ridiculed lol

Plus, would be bloody obvious since there would be only 1 anonymous entry and my name would be missing from the rest of the list lol

Not necessarily...
You could always claim you piked out prior.

Anyway, good to hear you're going for it.

I donít think my work has ever resonated with anyone.  Itís consistently hit a bum note with most people.  I still try though.

And thatís the great thing about this site, and continuously trying and writing and reading more. The more you do it the more you learn, and the better your work will be. Itís finding that connection.

Quoted from eldave1
Got through most of it. There were some silly things and some interesting things, IMO.  

Example of silly thing - concluding that rushed submittals result in lower scores since those submitted nearest the deadline scored worse.  Obviously - submitting close to the deadline could be the polar opposite - one waited as long as possible in order to fine tune.

Some Interesting things.

- Curse words were popular - the filthier the better. I would have never had considered this.

- In almost every genre, originality was not deemed important. I would have thought the inverse would be true.  Could be old ideas well executed are just fine.

- Readers don't care about parenthetical s (always suspected that).

etc.

Not sure what it all means in it's entirety but there was some food for thought as well as some stuff to discard.


Just a guess, multiple Simplscript tabs open?

Concur. In fact have to double check to make sure I didn't submit a post rather than a script.
