Quoted from ReneC


I think that "they should not be mere props" suggests they need to be the real deal.

Got my idea. This will be fun.


also says: must play some part, even if small

or, something like that.

No problem for me, though, as my idea centers on a box of chocolates that falls in love with a dozen roses. (Oops. I may have said too much.)

Oooooh, a polyamourous relationship! Or is it one chocolate for each rose?

Quoted from irish eyes
Debbie does Dallas is a rom com

Subtle difference, but I think that's actually a romp com.

I have the seed of an idea. This is tough.

Brutal.


The romance is hard enough.

The rom com genre is surprisingly tough... I'm realising why there are so few good comedies around.

With the extra elements as well, it's a very difficult challenge.

I can seem to think of several ideas that are good for a page or two, but 5-10 pages.... no.

I may have to double-space everything and have a ton of white space.

Running into the same issue. Not sure how I'm gonna reach 5 pages with my idea. This is a tough one for sure.

I don't mind som rom-coms. Some consider Silver Linings Playbook a rom com, although I never saw it that way. Say Anything is one of my favorite films.

I couldn't write a rom com to save my life.

I was on vacation to Baku, Azerbaijan and on the tough time change right now. And, started school, yey, here in New York! I'm back to school - actually only taking a few design courses but this are the toughest for me as I don't sketch etc etc.

Anyway, can't do this one sadly. Good luck to all, I'll try to read some.

Quoted Text
Easy enough to simply make a red box of chocolates and would that suffice? Or does the color need to be a plot point?


I believe the colour red has to be from something separate from both the roses and the chocolates. Not necessarily a plot point (though it could be), but an item that is utilized in the script at some point.
