Michel, Feel free to rip through my script, guns ablazin'.  


If only he knew which one, though.








Everyone should be honest. You have the choice whether or not you want to sound like a bitch when writing your review.

Quoted from Grandma Bear
It is still possible to be nice and encouraging to a writer when reviewing and still point out what needs fixing or doesn't work.


Thank you Pia

and your best bet is to take a nice tidy nap on a bed of circus peanuts.  


Are you trying to give me salmonella again, Shelton?  In my napping place?

Because Jee-Zeus would have wanted it that way.


Is he related to Jee-Hercules?

Don't go trying to make your furnishings sound more upscale than they are.  I know you sleep on a pile of shredded newspaper.  You're very hamster-like that way.

Hey, at least I recycle.  

Kind of like Phil does with his comments.

Update - Dreamscale has been less than impressed with most of what he's read so far.

Tis a sad day indeed.

I joined so that I can recieve honest feedback from others instead of just showing my stuff to loved ones. I made the error in assuming others are similarly motivated.
So since I can't be accused of being the most tactful person on the planet, I sitout the rest of the reviews unless someone specifically asks my opinion.

I don't really understand what the issue is?  Are you angry that your script isn't getting more reviews, or are the reviews just not as lengthy as you would like?

The one week challenges are a totally different animal, in that everything is anonymous and nobody has any idea of who wrote what.  If it were a normal script that you submitted, with your name on the title page and what not, you could do review exchanges, or just read other's work and ultimately get yours read.

Again, what is the real issue here?

Can I have your opinion on all of the OWC scripts?


Just kidding.  But honestly the feedback from the OWC is not a good place to start getting feedback from SimplyScript.  

Generally, if you post a script, you will get feedback that is pretty well thought out and constructive.  

With the OWC, you mostly are seeing people that want to read as many scripts as they can as fast as they can to get credit for the reads and see the competition.  That isn't to imply that all of the crit isn't well thought out because you do get some real feedback.  Relax, lay back and see it through.  You've already won by submitting a script in the first place - now it's time to see how the whole thing plays out.

No the reviews I've gotten are fine. I wasn't looking for compliments, just honesty.
If people prefer to not have me give an honest review, I'll just sit it out is all I'm saying.

Nobody knows whether or not they're reading your script or not, so they have no choice but to give you honesty.  This isn't a situation where somebody writes a script to blow smoke up your ass in the hope that you'll read their script, because you won't know which one is theirs either.  It's a little bit much, but hopefully it makes sense.

What makes you think someone isn't being honest?  Just curious.  If you want you can pm me about it.

you're not getting my point. Some people are complaining that I'm being, what, too harsh(?) or something along those lines. Too uppity for a newbie

I think they are being honest about their perception of you.  But just because some vocal people might feel that way, it is not a reason for you to stop participating.  Everyone contributes in their own way to the board.  That's what makes it the special place it is.
