Yeah, what the hell is a Dreamscale anyway? Fess up, Jeff.


I revealed this a long time ago on SS.  Guess it will remain a mystery...for awhile...

Quoted from Dreamscale
I have a similar spreadsheet, with 4 categories - Writing, Challenge, Story, and Other.  5 points available in each category.

I have 1 to read still and my scores range from 0 to 17.5.  Most are between 4 and 7.


I'm a woman who works more with intuition and less on numbers; so thanks guys, I need you for that department!  

A couple days ago, somebody posted a thread on Rendevous and it got me thinking back to about ten years ago: About your script, Jeff: FADE TO WHITE and another script: THE BIG FADE...

Back then, I wanted to try and help the writer of the latter because I thought it was a really good script.

FLASHFORWARD TO THE FUTURE:

Sandra thinks about this and wonders: Was I right? Or was I just in some la-lah land?

Turns out I was right.

Today I dug out the old file and started reading it again. MAN! It's a good script. And it is LOADED WITH SWEARING, but that doesn't bother me. Simply because it's so darn real it's scary!

You can't make that shit up. Either the writer lived in this world, knew someone who did... Or else, the other option is that I guess, he was just that good of a writer, but I'd think more towards the first two options.

Anyways,

I didn't use numbers.

But...

I also notice that years ago I used to give a lot of feedback on grammar etc... Now, I just won't go into that much detail. Like Pia says, getting old, no time for football.   I feel the same way... A person wants to be productive, learn new things, experience life in new ways... That's why finding an exceptional script or book has a way of often teaching us something, not just being entertaining.

Yep, I always thought that, but I wasn't sure. That or maybe Scorpio, but you're a little too fun for a Scorpio, I think. Not that Scorpios aren't fun. It probably has a lot more to do with just sign... All that this and that rising... I don't know.

Now, what am I? (Besides crazy)

Just tying in some of the thread conversation on one of the entries and the script scoring we spoke about earlier.

Obviously everyone isnít going to find the same stuff funny, but it does make sense that enough people will find a certain script funny enough for it to be the one that is voted better than all the others.

So just because a handful donít find it funny doesnít mean that the bulk of readers wont either. That doesnít make the handful that didnít find it funny wrong. Different strokes and all that.

Which one did you find most funny? I was in a crazy "laugh at a blank page" world yesterday and the moon was only a little sliver; so who knows, but there's one I started reading aloud: not a Rom Com, but I was starting to find it funny and that's why I think it's back in the running for me.

I'll probably wait to disclose that once the voting has gone in  

But I definitely have a best script, and then a best rom com script and they are not the same script.

That's fair. Me too. Best script and best Rom Com. That sums it up for me. And I have one that is kind of hovering around and I'm not sure about.

I'm definitely going to look at things again in the morning when I'm fresh.
