@ Mr. Blonde

Slightly off topic, but any tellin' when Don's gonna re-open the submission link (for non-OWC scripts) or in my case an OWC that I didn't enter on time.


To be honest, I'm unsure. If I had to put a guess to it, I'd say between now and the 21st, but it's really when he's available to do it.

Just finished reading all of the entries. Great job by everyone who entered. A few stood out but overall I was impressed by the quality of the scripts and the research that went into them.

By far my favorite: the Ultimate Weapon.  Followed probably by Changes (specifically because of the historical detail put into it.) and  Die Bieber, Die... Which was not something I was expecting to like, given the title...  But it was funny dammit!  

But Ultimate Weapon?  THAT was some good storytellin'...    Mr. Time had some nice touches, too.

Almost finished, a couple more to do, then time to vote.

I wasn't going to enter, cos my script had 'issues'. Lots and lots of issues.

Anyway I decided to give it a brutal change and throw it in for better for worse. OWC's can be hard when it doesn't go well but if you're not in, you can't learn. Well, that's what I keep telling myself.  

Before this, I hadn't  written a time travel script so it was all good experience. It just appears that a time travel script, in a week, ended up harder than expected, but on balance worth the effort.

To me, OWC's are often about decent ideas that need more time. This OWC is no different - there are some scripts with good potential in there.

Cheers

I've read 4 thus far.  But I'm bogged down with 2 things that involve my future.  The first is a novel, the second is a script literally hanging off a cliff on the verge of production.

To anyone who's script I haven't read yet, I will make time this weekend.

And finished...and voted...but not for my own. I really wish that could be removed, ie voting for you own, just makes me feel uncomfortable having that option. I would prefer not to have it, but then again I couldn't secretly give myself a recommend

However, I am very grateful, as usual, to Don and this time Sean for arranging.

Cheers Folks

Now back to normal life

Actually, I personally have no problem with voting for my own.  I didn't in this case, because I felt there were other scripts that were more deserving.  But I don't think it's wrong to vote for your own script if you honestly, rationally believe that yours is best.  IE: not just because it's yours.  Of course, that requires us to be impartial.  But we are... aren't we?

Technically, you don't have to put anything for your own. You can leave it entirely blank. =)

Thats good to know. I was stressing because I voted for myself in the October OWC. Now I don't feel so bad.

Yeah, I know this is me, I just prefer not to, like Movie poet. Once you get out in the big and world of large competitions you get nowhere near your entry.

But I do like the idea of voting, which doesn't always seem to happen, and the classification is a sound format.

Hey all,

I read all the OWC entries and will post all of my thoughts on them in the next few days.  I'd post them all but I don't want to step on other threads.

I gotta say that these entries were far out!  Thanks for helping out with the boring days out here.  Some promising scripts for sure.

Later,

Johnny
