Lol, I was just thinking how we could all have the same log:

A young girl/boy makes a miraculous discovery which could alter mankind as we know it.

Ha!!

Quoted from Dreamscale

No firearms of any kind, no projectile weaponry, no weapons of mass destruction, no explosions, no large scale destruction of any kind, including natural disasters. No vehicle stunts or crashes.


Forgive me for saying so, but the above stipulations kinda takes the fun out of it.  

How much time is left before the deadline?

Well, that wasn't my intention.

IMO, peeps get too caught up in cliches such as these.  Personally, I'm so tired of poorly written scripts involving completely unrealistic gun play.

I wanted to see what peeps could come up with in the genres available, the R rating, and no guns or the like.

Hope it wasn't too much of a hindrance for you, Silverback.

Looking forward to your entry.

5 hours left!!!!!  Tick Tock, Tick Tock...

My comp's been down for a week.  Just got it back up.  Don't know it I'm in or not.  Probably not. But I'll be more than happy to do a few reads.

This is a valuable exercise and I need to apply this to my own stuff.  I see what you're sayin, writers will put characters in a corner only to give them the easy way out.  Time for some characters to actually put in some work.

Right on!

And also, time for characters to not have to be super human spies, hitmen, drug lords, cops, etc.  How many "normal" peeps have guns, anyway...and use them?

There goes my script about a superhuman spy hitman drug lord, who is also a cop.

Thanks a lot Jeff

Now I have 2 1/2 hours to write a new script and drink more beer
