Quoted from James McClung
I may or may not be out. I have a concept that meets all criteria for the challenge and a pile of notes. It's still got issues, and I expect the lack of time remaining may hurt the execution. The script will be written regardless, and I plan on posting a polished version at a later date if I miss the deadline. I also plan on reviewing entries whether or not I enter myself.


I am in a similar boat.

Except my boat is red and full of roses and chocolates.

Update...

I have "FADE IN:" on the page now.

It's too early to start drinking, but maybe I need to.  I've got to get this thing going!!!


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

Quoted from Gary
I went back and reread mine and itís god awful. Doesnít make any sense. I may be too embarrassed to enter it, even though one of 2019 goals was to enter at least two challenges. Damn goal setting!



Quoted from Khamanna
Don' t worry. My entry will totally have your back. I started reading it and wondered what I was trying to say there.



I like it guys a little bit of reverse Psychology.
That way if it does get slammed you're already covered with "i told you so"

Don't worry my entry is really shit too
i mean you'll be able to smell the stench coming through your laptop when you read it

we are writing Rom-Coms, they are going to suck regardless.

Think I'm done with mine. I keep rewriting it, but at this point all i'm doing is sprinkling glitter on shit.

I'm actually not feeling to bad about it, but I know that as soon as I start reading other entries I'm gonna have an "uh oh..." moment

They are going to be tough. The Rom part is easy. The Com part is tough!!!. Especially in a short. In a feature you have more time to establish your characters and situations and get a chance to get some laughs out of the situations you put them in. That's a high bar in a five to ten pager.

Like I said before, I am expecting to smile more than to laugh with these and hope peeps are not too tough on the comedic element because humor is so subjective in the first place.

I didnít find this post funny at all, but the two paragraphs did have good chemistry with each other. Thatís quite impressive for such a short piece.

Honestly, you Dave, and you, Frank ,should team up together...

Apart from my hubby you two crack me up on a regular basis.  

P.S. Romantic comedy (also known as the portmanteaus romedy or romcom) is a genre with light-hearted, humorous plotlines centered on romantic ideas, such as how true love is able to surmount most obstacles.[1] One dictionary definition is "a funny movie, play, or television program about a love story that ends happily".[2] Another definition suggests that its "primary distinguishing feature is a love plot in which two sympathetic and well-matched lovers are united or reconciled" wiki btw.

We're not writing screwball here.
Of course I'm only posting that cause if I'm lucky enough to even get something up I don't want to ready: Nope, not funny, not funny enough! Pre-emptive strike.

I cannot decide which of the two I make red - roses or chocolates. I feel like it's important and may decide against submitting for that very reason.

Rom coms aren't comedies. The comedy is the light tone, the chuckles, the anticipation without a ton of tension. Romantic movies are pure emotion and heart, rom coms lighten things up a bit.

At least, that's how I approached mine and how I'm going to be reading them.

And, for the record, this is my very first attempt at anything in this genre. I'm honestly happy I even came up with something that seems to fit, and I look forward to getting thoroughly flogged in the reviews.

Ouch, I hit the wrong button.

Time to drink here!

I have a couple pages and I know where I'm going.  I've been laughing my arse off every time I reread what I have, but then again, my kind of humor isn't for everyone.

I'll get mine done, but I doubt it goes over as well as I had planned.

Time for a shot of Jagie!!!
