Quoted from LC
Warren, I think if you felt the romance and it was mildly amusing and it met the parameters the writer has done their job, yes?



Yes, that's exactly what I said, maybe not very well. I'm asking about good scripts that are not romantic or not comedic.

Ahh...well I'll wait for others to chime in on that.

There are a few standouts for me, but surprisingly only a few.

I've still got a few more to read though.

We've got two weeks to read these, right?

I've read about a quarter of them. I'll get through them.

People needn't worry about the low read count just yet.

As far as the superbowl goes, I couldn't care less. I don't follow any sports these days. Why? Because I'm getting old and I'm realizing we don't have an endless supply of time. I have soooo much I want to do in life and I will do. Why on earth would I want to waste any of my precious time watching other people live their dream? I rather go out and live my own.  

On scoring the scripts. None of us are judges. We're just writers and readers. Score them according to how you liked the story. If you see someone blatantly ignoring the parameters, I would definitely hold that against that script, but in the end, it's usually the good stories that float to the top.

In my super organised spreadsheet, I have highlighted those I think have bent the rules too much - help me to remember to knock scores off.

I'm also adding scores on for those who use the chocolate, roses and red in inventive ways and ways that are actually intertwined with the story.
So many get them out the way in the first page and then never come up again

Also, I am surprised at the amount of comments on spelling/grammar - Being a one week challenge from parameters to idea to writing, I thought people would have been more lenient on such things and focused more on the story and the decisions people make in using the chocolate/red/roses

I'm not sure how many scripts I've read that used Valentine's day as a premise... probably about 60 % so far.

Thinking outside the box

I'm scoring based on creativity with making me laugh and of course the element of romance. Which seems to be lacking in a lot of scripts.
Some peeps seem to be digging through their pornhub accounts for stories

When jumping into reviewing these, I honestly didn't think I would be reading about anal manipulation and golden showers. Guess I have a more old fashioned sense of romance lol

Well, I accidentally read the news article about the Superbowl. See - I'm trying to remember that Superbowl means football and not baseball.

Anyway, it was 3-3 in the third quarter and then one of the teams scored 10 more in the fourth quarter and the score jumped up to 13-3.

How weird. People of SimplyScripts ought to know!

I've only read a handful so far and am glad to say I haven't ran into a pisser yet. Nothing really great as the ones I wanted to like had some series faults in structure or story that keeps them from being top tier.

That said, been looking at reviews on mine and am a bit salty on a comment that keeps coming up that I totally disagree with. But I'm assuming some of the people here just have little experience with the subject matter and there isn't much I can do about that.

I'll keep reading and whittling these down though. Thankful for the 2 weeks of review time and opportunity to participate. Some of these scripts with a bit of spit polish could be solid little stories.

In American Football, it's possible to score 1, 2, 3, or 6 points at a time, but some combinations are more common than others. 10 (6+1+3) isn't unusual. I did see once a score of 5-0 and the announcers were kidding that someone accidentally posted a baseball score.

The last couple times I watched the Superbowl was just for the commercials, and play-it-safe marketing has even taken the fun out of those. So this year I just did something else.

Oh, interesting. Then I don't understand why people complain.
