Thanks, everyone!

Feeling super proud today, so glad you liked my script.

It feels just that little bit more special with the amount of entries and the fact that rom com is so far from what I normally write. If anything I thought I might potentially get a Writer's Choice for horror one day.

I've said it already, but thanks to Pia and Don, and everyone that took part.

I wrote two scripts I would otherwise have never written, and I'm very happy with how both of them went.

For those who liked Small-Town Cops and commented on its abrupt ending, well thatís exactly what it was. I spent the week writing and tweaking Crazy In Love, Small-Town Cops was an afterthought I had on the last day of the challenge. The initial idea was that Andy would commit a petty crime a day in order to see Officer Lacey and then ending with her either phoning him or them being caught having a drink together. I just literally ran out of time and had to wrap it up. I will definitely be expanding it into the full concept.

Anyway... thanks again. Itís been a great challenge.

I missed reading about nine or ten, and Crazy In Love was one of them. Gotta get on that.

Woah, Warren! That's an excellent script. You should switch to rom coms, seriously!!

Nice job, everyone. And fun OWC!

Thank you, Pia! Thank you Don!

Libby got me with Persistent, people. She's that good. Out of 40 entries, what do you know. She just guessed it.

Thanks, all. I appreciate the kind words.

I definitely think I'll be wandering away from horror and the dark side a bit more often in the future.

Thanks Don and Pia, a great challenge with a nice turn-out.

A tip of the cap to the winners.

Congrats to everyone else, who entered, who read.  Not so much for the few that entered, but didn't participate.

Aww, Ghostie, thanks for the vote of confidence.  

Dave needs to add to his list:

Wondering or wandering? Haha, gotcha! But then I realised both could be apt.

Nope, you got me there

Thankfully I pay more attention to my actual writing

A serious congrats to the winners, although we're all winners for participating, of course.

I also want to throw out special to congrats to both Mark (Irish) and those that gave his script a high score.

It's great to see that a wild, goofy script that wasn't technically well written meant  enough and stayed with the readers.  You guys know I judge heavily on how well or how poorly a script is written...and I'm pretty sure I hammered this one for the writing, but...it stayed with me, and I actually knew it would, as it was very funny and the tone just worked very well. I "scored" this script with three 4's and one 1, out of a 5 possible.  If the writing was better, this would have been a top 2 or 3 for me, easily.

So, thanks to all who saw that.  It makes me think about being so anal about the techs, but hey, that's me, I guess.


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.
