@Sean

Any chance you can give us a break on the 10 page minimum?  Most OWC's have been a six page minimum.

Much more doable, IMO.  

That's my only gripe.

Oh, man, I'm in the process of finishing a very heavy time travel script at the moment so striking another time travel idea might be a little hard.

Although I'm still interested. Will see how it goes.

While I like most time-travel like films especially with a premise like this  (The Terminator and 12 Monkeys come quickly to mind) and paradox stories/movies can mess with your brain a bit, I'm not quite sure I'm into this. I wouldn't know where to start, where to finish. I'm skeptical...

Damn...much better...it was all a dream.  My girl is here and we just had an awesome quiche (that I made!) and we're drinking champagne.  The 6 hotties disappeared and things are back to normal, although I may be just a tad hung over.

Time travel is always tough , but it's a great challenge that I'll tackly early next week.

Hope everyone is safe and in a happy place on this very special day.


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

I'm 2 pages into mine and it's riddled with voice overs.  Not a good way to start.

I'm unsure if I'll continue it.

I'm not incredibly strict when it comes to the page count. I took two things into consideration when I upped it to 10-15. The first is that you have three extra days. The second is that this is likely to require a slightly more complex story than OWCs typically tend to have. If you think you can write a solid time travel script in six pages, by all means. If you think you can do it in a single page, I stand behind you. But, my guess is that most people will need at least those 10 pages to craft a well-told story, so that's why I set the minimum in place. Personally, I don't ever think a person should be DQ'd for being under the page limit and you won't be in this OWC.

Great Challenge... this one is ringing out "pisser" just kidding Sean

Mark


Comedy is allowed, bro! It only becomes a pisstake if it parodies the whole requirements using SS dudes. Plenty of scope for humour in this. My entire story came to me last night out of nowhere and it will fit perfectly. Happy about that as I don't have to worry about cramming at the last minute, lol.

And I just woke up to see Villa had finally won a game!

The 'word' is, as above, guys.

... What, it came to you in a dream? Smart arse.  
Happy New Year, mate.

On another note.

Sean, these stories don't have to involve big scale events, do they?

No, of course not. I made a note in the rules that it could be the main character traveling back to stop a bully from picking on them in high school. Literally, you can have them traveling back to do anything.

I wasn't asleep Lib, just quietly brainstorming, when the whole thing formed. Beginning, middle, end. The title and everything. Only thing is that most people will sorta work out it's mine because of the subject matter lol. But that's too bad  

Happy New Year to u too, digger!


A big scale event?  That's when Jeff weighs himself
