Thanks for the reply

Me being me, I am going to have to keep a spreadsheet of all entries, which ones I've read/commented on because I know I will lose track.


That's kind of what I do. I make a Wordpad document and list all the titles. Then, I put my score (a letter grade) next to the script and wait for the review page where I, then, translate it into whatever scoring categories are set up.

Wow, quite a turn-out this time. And this is AFTER half the board said they wouldn't be able to submit anything.

As promised/threatened, here is my unsubmitted and very bad idea since I'm curious if anyone else used the same gimmick:

Set on a cruise ship to allow repeated encounters and a shared laundromat.

Male lead (~30) has a buddy as his cabinmate, they're here for the singles scene.

Female leads are mom and daughter, 40ish and 20ish, both named Rose. Mom's basically celebrating her divorce. Daughter is basically the stereotype of unrealistic idealist snowflake.

Mom and the guy would have some intelligent bit of conversation in passing, inciting incident is the daughter leaves some bright red bit of lingerie in the dryer. He makes the mistake of making a big deal of returning it to her room, which is probably where the chocolates come in. Turns out the red underthing is Mom's.

He's going to have to choose between someone interesting or someone who's hot but incompatible. Eventually, he'll go with the former.

Damn... now I feel like even more of a chump; everybody in the world entered this challenge.

On the plus side, it is nice to know I'm not obligated to read every single one of these. Will certainly be joining the fray though. See if I can review better than I enter challenges.

I've read bout 11 so far and maybe I'm not getting the concept of ROM COM but there's a lot death and F Bombs dropped...

I think of Something about Mary and movies like that.

Am I wrong?

I won't say wrong, but I do disagree. If romance and comedy are at the forefront, I think everything else is fair game. I'd like to think genres aren't defined by preconceptions. Speaking of which, how do F bombs even factor? There's Something About Mary has its share and it honestly isn't too far removed from the traditional mold.

If there were a target audience stipulation in the challenge, I think things might be different. Maybe an interesting challenge for the future.

I'm through 6 and I have to say I'm very surprised at the quality so far.  Only 1 I didn't finish.  ON my 20 point, 4 category scale, I already have a 17.5 and a 16.5.  Pretty damn impressive!

I'm enjoying watching the view count. There's a huge disparity. Wondering if it's an indication of a title that's more interesting, or if it's just "luck of the draw."

I always figured there are two ways to think about the page count in the early going. The first ones posted up are typically the ones with the most views early on. Having reviews gives the indication that people could stand to read the script, hence it looks appealing that way. However, those early scripts end up towards the bottom by the end because everybody's already read through them and the passed-over ones make their way to the top as people finish them up. Typically the case.

For some reason, my OWC entries ALWAYS lag out of the gate, and at times, have the very least reads and views.  Guess peeps just hate my titles and loglines.

Usually, they tend to come back a few days into the reads, though.  But it's always brutal up front.
