Well its not the Theme thats the problem, I love those Hammer films and Gothic horror.
I dont know what the heck the problem is actually, brain fart? lol


You can only do your best. I think it's pretty hard coming up with a completed script in just a week, even if it's just a short.

I really enjoyed Wisp in the Feb one, so hopefully you'll get one in.

Thanks so much for the complement!

Wisp was my first short, fond memories for sure.

I'll get something in and I'm sure yours will be great as well.

It is really hard and I can only imagine it gets harder because one always wants to exceed in their work.

I want to second Pia's words regarding loglines. If I see loglines that look really weak to me or there are bad errors, then I'm hesitant. I really do like to try and read all of the scripts, but the logline does influence me.

Tonight, it will be my pleasure to submit my script before the close of the challenge. Then, I'm going to chill a bit. I have an ESL workshop tomorrow. That's teaching English as a second language so I need to be on the ball. Whatever methods I learn, I like to try and incorporate them as I cross over with Hebrew, German and whatever comes along.

Good luck to all,

Now I'm going through mine with sober eyes it's prooving to be a bit of a slog at best.  I hope to meet the deadline but more importantly have something of decent quality to send in.

So much for my bravado the other night!

Nuts. If the logline is a determining factor my entry could well be undone. I rushed with the logline, wasn't even expecting to need one since this is my first sub.

If you see my short has no replies someone have mercy on this poor newbie! I'll make sure to read as many as I can.

Cool, thanks Hugh.

Might just have enough time to write a logline, give it a title and perhaps more importantly, give it an ending!

No worries, I usually do open to the first page anyway and give it a glance. I can tell if someone is new and so I will often critique anyway to give some help.

I'm new myself. Well, kinduv. I like to pretend. So don't worry. What you do now and what you do later will be entirely different. Have fun. That's the most important part.

I'm in. Couldn't stand to sit by like the last OWC. I won't read them all, but I'll try to read those by contributing members. And those who come across mine.

I will go easy on people bending the parameters of this one, as I feel I've done the same. This genre was far more obscure to me than I thought after research.

Cheers, til tomorrow. I shall read your scripts with a pint. So forgive me in advance for my comments.

Only a pint?   Seriously, I have this feeling about what gothic is. After some of the research and comments by some members here and my own internal feelings, I just get this feeling. I'm not going to say anymore right now, but yes, I will be really interested to see how people interpreted it.

The tough part about this challenge, as someone pointed out earlier, maybe James, was that you're combining Gothic with what is almost supposed to be a happy or at least light hearted ending. And I say almost, because it doesn't have to be light hearted, but the ghost has to be good and misunderstood, which sends things in that direction.

But that also made it a good..."challenge". I seriously doubt anyone had something like this sitting around.

logline: every time I do an OWC, I totally forget about the logline until I am submitting. Then I have to bang one together.

ReneC: you'll get plenty of comments. I would think usually at least 10 by the end of the week. And if you've been commenting on others, you'll get more after the reveal. Don't feel bad if you get some tough reviews...everyone does!
