The priest in my story has dice tattooed on his testicles, but he can still use them as physical dice, so I'm pretty sure it counts.

Thanks, Warren, that answers my question. It's so hard to catch James these days with his regularly scheduled beauty sleeps.

I wanted to double check. You know - you think you got a stranger in a strange land and then the stranger is not strange enough and stuff. And you can't even reply to them when they start with that.

Not a problem.

He may still come back with another answer but to me it seems clear. I would have specifically stated that they needed to be in the same scene if that was the case and that doesn't seem to be what he has said.

Definitely know what you mean, I had that problem with the "in a taxi" challenge a few challenges back.

Quoted from Sandra Elstree.
My Lord, Dear MarkItZero,

You have a bunch of mischievous little pranksters to deal with in this thread I see.

But it's fun! And yes, they're good questions! And make ya think!

Good job for running this challenge.

I've been scraping something together. Don't know how it's going to work out, but I'm really glad and thankful for something to keep me going.

Sandra


Thanks, glad you're enjoying the challenge! Keep an eye on those sneaky pranksters for me.

Quoted from khamanna
I have one more question - so it's fine if there's dice somewhere else as long as the church is present in the script as well? I mean what if my character plays dice at home then goes to church?

And if not would it be okay if I have dice played at the retirement home then switch to church and have a jump rope in the church - all in the same script?


Yeah, the object doesn't necessarily have to appear in the location. So long as it's in the script somewhere.

If you pull off a dice/retirement home/church/jump rope script you will be a God among mortals.

The Quickie Challenge Location/Object Picks
Remember, you may choose either set. You CANNOT mix and match between them. Just pick one group or the other:

Yes, you cannot swap the requirements.

If you pick the first group, you must have a retirement home and a jump rope.

If you pick the second group, you must have a church and dice.

Assuming you have those required elements for that group, you can have any other locations and objects in the world in addition to those.

Does that make sense or did people's heads just explode?

Makes sense to me. So you can have all four if you'd like to, or even three... so long as two of them are from one group. Which is handy, as the priest in my story needs to tie his dice-tattooed testicles back on with something after using them, so why not make it a skipping rope?

Hilarious and correct.

At first I hated this three page limit. Now I love it as it made me really look at my action lines and trim the fat. I think this TDC has made me a better writer. All I have to do now is the logline and post it!

I'm looking forward to reading all of the fat-trimmed scripts. I've kinda given mine away now. Soon as people see the testicles, they're going to know it's mine.

Signed, sealed and delivered. Done and done.

It's hard to tell how many are participating this time. Good luck everyone and can't wait to see what gets posted.

I wrote something. I can't promise it's going to be submitted, depending on my mood tomorrow. Yeah, it's not great. But it's within three pages. and I included the object/location requirement. That should count for something. Well, let's see.

You never know. I didn't like my Red on Yellow in the last OWC and it was well received. I think we need participants for this one so you just gotta post!

I wrote and submitted a steaming load of ****.  But it's three pages and includes the required location/object, so I give it a D+.
