Yeah, but you shitted on mine!  I thought  for sure, at least you would find it funny.

Alas, moral of the story is, "don't get too stoned when conceiving and writing a script, as it may seem very funny to you, but won't to the masses".

At least reviewers aren't calling out your character. Fairly certain at least one reviewer believes I might be a serial killer. Lol. His review alone was worth entering this challenge.

sorry bro, there's a lot of scripts I shit on(apologies to those) and there were quite a few that I laughed out loud, but did not see any link to romanticism.

I'm just glad i don't have to see "Valentine's Day" anymore I've moved my percentage up to 85% of the entries

Quoted from eldave1




There was one script that I really thought was well done - other than the fact it was not really a Rom-com. It was a Rom-drama.  I had to downgrade that one.  It would have been a 5 on my scale of 1 to 5. Instead it is a 4.




This is exactly the issue I'm talking about. For me, and I think for most people, a drama is easier to write than a comedy. I believe I could have put up a better rom drama than a rom com, or even a better rom horror, but my script may have suffered because I tried to play within the parameters.

If a rom com isnít the Writer's Choice that would be pretty odd, and in my opinion defeats the purpose of the challenge, which was to write a rom com.

In saying that, I still think there are probably a few ways you could write one, but if it isnít comedic and romantic, then it isnít a rom com. Or maybe it is and I just have no idea what a rom com is

  WOW...that's funny!

One reviewer's comments on mine, who I'll keep nameless for the time being, were so completely crazy, I seriously have no idea what he was even trying to say...and I mean that in complete seriousness.  I actually am looking forward to asking what his comments were supposed to mean.

I considered DQing mine like Sean did with his, but I honestly did TRY to put my own spin on the romcom genre. It's a dark and twisted spin on the genre, for sure, but I did try. According to the reviews, my script couldn't be further from a romcom. Oh well. I tried.

Quoted from Mr. Blonde


I can't do that. I always get hung up on errors and I'm actually disappointed nobody pointed out the four errors I've found in mine thus far. Lol. But, believe me, if I had the time (and if we didn't have 43 entries), I'd have reverted to my old style for this challenge. I liked doing it that way because I felt like it could be legitimately helpful.



I am happy to be this nit-picky after the OWC finishes.

I have a few reasons why. I believe some of the entries will be throw away scripts intended only for the OWC. I donít want to spend time going over it with a fine-tooth comb if the script is never going to be looked at again. I also think that, in most OWC's, there are some writer's that do a dump and run.

By offering to give detailed reviews after the challenge I feel that the people that ask actually want me to go in-depth.

This would be different if there were 10 or 15 entries, but there are over 40.

I don't think you need to worry about getting too many takers, there, Warren.
