Done and voted. I might be the last one...and for all you "lull" whiners, some of us needed the time to get to them all.  

If I didn't leave a review for yours...I didn't want to.

This was a TON of scripts and  I thought I was doing a good job reading them bit by bit but ran outta time and I won't have any free tonight so I voted with just half the entries read. Apologies to any I missed and if anybody wants a read from my, just pm and I will give you my thoughts.

I'm pretty tough on  my reviews and from what  I read, only had 1 stand out. Some were very close and just needed a bit more rom or com while the majority I didn't care for much.

That said I love the huge turnout and hope it stays like this for the next challenge. Congrats on all who entered. That's a small accomplishment no matter what anybody says.

Great challenge. Great turnout. Horrible read ratio. Maybe one of the worst ones ever in that regard. By way of comparison, the October challenge had 13 entries. Number of replies averaged around 19 - some of those were after the fact - but one could see most participants reviewed.

It may be as turnout increases - the percent of reads (proportionally) decreases. Could be the newbie factor. Could be the sheer volume. Who knows.

I'm done.

Votes in.  Five were given 5/5, two 4/5, and three didn't read.  There's one I DQ'd.  The rest a mixture of poor-good.

If I didn't have a massive argument last night with the missus, on Valentine's day of all days, I think I could have read all of the scripts by today.

Anyway, got to get back to the other half.

Could be the sheer volume.

I think it is imho. I didn't enter the October challenge but I read and reviewed all the entries. 13 scripts were manageable.

However, this time I entered the owc - in fact it was the first time I did, I'm one of the 'newbies' - and I read all but I'm still six reviews short. 40+ entries made it  a lot more difficult for me. No doubt.

Maybe it's because I'm a NESB and it takes a little more time for me to read and review... I don't know... My apologies to these 6 people by the way... I tried to do my best as others also did - Rene, Javier (jayrex), Cameron, etc. did a great job even if they didn't get to review all the entries.

Definitely one of, if not the most fun OWC I've been a part of. This challenged the hell out of me and made me go to places with my writing I've never gone before, which I guess is kinda the point.

Great job, Pia. Awesome challenge.

And thanks, Don. Without SS none of it would be possible.

Me too, I always feel that even if I don't feel like I learn a whole lot at one time, I know I do later because I pick up little things et-lay-et. Rene? Get me?   Little by little.

And really, it is fun. Coming in cold and reading people's material, we challenge ourselves to (as my daughter used to say) wrap our minds around the concept. It can be truly difficult to be drawn into a world we know nothing about in a few pages... and then decide from that whether it's worth it or not. Which, also, gives us a damn good appreciation for "paid readers" who do this for a living!!!!! I couldn't. I'd be dead if I did. So....

Thank you Paid Readers!!!! And thank you all you readers here!!!!!

God Speed Everyone!!!!!!

It was fun for sure, but I did not personally challenge myself.  I waited a bit too long to get started, but whatever peeps have to say, I am happy with what I put forth.

I f I were to rewrite mine, which is doubtful, there are several lines that would go...for sure.

Good job, everyone who played along and did their part reading and providing feedback.  For the others...not good job!!!!

I'm not sure if you did Worshipping Sophia or not, but that was a good script. If you had swearing in yours that wasn't necessary, then that was one that I DQ'd. Hey! I learned what DQ'd means in this challenge! Seriously I didn't know!  

There was one script that I was so sorry not to be able to put in my top three: That one was the Tuna Casserole one. Can't remember the name right now, but it was really good I thought. Can't figure out why the writer did that crazy ending. They basically outted themselves with it. Maybe on purpose? For the Helluvit? For teaching purposes? I don't know, but that really sucked for me.

My favorite is further in on this thread, but I won't mention again until everything's said and done.

I loved that tuna casserole one. I think that was Florida Man. Yeah, not sure what the writer was thinking with that crazy ending. I didnít mind it though. It was kinda fun!

Years ago I thought it would be cool to mess with tone. Now (adays) (how the heck do you write now a days?!!!) ...

I understand that sometimes we blindside people; not that we mean to, but that's what ends up happening sometimes, I think...

This brings me 'round to my recent script-- that's what happened:

People came in cold from their everyday lives and WHAMOHOO! They're hit with
craziness that they're not used to. They think like, "I can't think on this stupid!!!" "What the Hell?!!!"

Although I don't completely understand, I do understand. I have a poetry book in my bathroom (I'll post later on it) that contains a whack load of (well you know) poems! You can read some of these things over and over again and I don't know if you'll ever get it. Still, it's fun. It's fun trying to bring one's own conclusions into the piece.

For the most part, that's what I really enjoy in my reads: Developing an acquaintance with the author behind the words. Kind of like finding a treasure.

Mark but this flea, and mark in this
How little that which thou denyest me is.
It sucked me first, and now sucks thee,
And in this flea our two bloods mingled be.
Thou knowest that it cannot be said
A sin, nor shame, nor loss of maindenhead.
Yet this enjoys before it woo
And pampered swells with one blood made of two,
And this, alas, is more than we would do.

More importantly...Sandra poops to poetry. The things we learn here at SS.
