I read all. Didn't comment on one so people think it's mine.

Love the Quickie Challenge. Really forces writers to focus. Plus, reading and commenting isn't as daunting as the OWC.

I read all of these Monday but saved most of my commenting until today after a fresh look at each one.

Quoted from Tyler King


When the challenge clearly states 3 pages, I would expect 3 pages and no less. Any less than that is laziness and people who "don't care" about rules are wannabe know it alls


I don't have the rules in front of me, but I believe it said a "maximum" of three pages.

Yeah, it's a maximum of three pages. If anything, I've seen scripts here where people try to fit way too much within three pages, and some suffer because of it (mine included). On the other hand, there are some folks who can fit a well rounded story onto one or two pages and it reads great. It's not easy, but some are really good at it.

I loved the challenge. I read them all in one day and there were quite a few I enjoyed.
Perhaps a quality 3-pager is hard to write, I won't know. They are easier to read - that's for sure. And there are a lot of reads on each in such a short time - I like that too. Lots to like about this challenge.


Quoted from Warren
People seem to be really divided with this challenge.


I agree with that. And wildly divided - that's something I see first time in these challenges.

Finished. I'm impressed with what people pulled off. 3 pagers are hard to write in general. At least, I think so. Then tack on very specific requirements and it's gonna get downright brutal.

You all acquitted yourselves admirably. I'm always impressed with the creativity and talent around here.

Reading seemed less stressful too. I think I only got grumpy on a couple so only a few people will hate me.

This will stand forever as the record holder for most old people hung to death in a single challenge.

Yup, right there with you. I didn't get all stressed out trying to read them all and was actually able to spend more thought in the comments (albeit some smart-ass comments).

Thanks for coming up with the quickie challenge. It REALLY made me work at cutting out the fat.

I like the shorties better too. One reason MP was so successful. Perfect length for writing a short and reading.

I still have a few to go, but will handle those over the next couple of days.

I'm happy to say that I was really impressed with the writing on display here.

There was only one I didn't review, but it's a quirk with me.

My husband knows: If he puts on those kind of Hollywoody movies --

I'm OUTTA THE ROOM

I might have missed a good script though.

It's just, with me: I hate, absolutely detest:

Alarm clocks ringing at the beginning of scripts.

Stupid flakey girls with big boobs running around in scripts.

Idiot stories that can only get any attention because of sexual content...

Ok, said 'nough. But that's the idea.

I hate reading shit!

So, I applaud all the writers in this challenge because I didn't get that feeling and was able to read and with good vibes goin' on.

When can we vote? After tomorrow I'll be off-grid until late Sunday night. Any chance of opening the polling station early?

I think Don emails out the voting thing. But I dunno when.

Looking at the original post, voting is only going to happen August 27th. I'll be coming back from a trip with the family that day so hopefully I can get my vote in. If the polling stations open a bit early I'd be up for that!

This was a good challenge. Four scripts rose above the rest for me. They were Eeny Meeny, Holy Roller, Too Short and The Numbers of The Beast. I liked them all for different reasons, but Eeny Meeny and TNOTB had particular visuals that really stood out - EM, the wife tapping her watch at the very end and TNOTB, the priest rolling the dice in his hand. Good, visual storytelling that said a lot with just a line or two.

Nice work, all. Fun challenge.

I meant the 27th is the last day to get votes in, not the only day. I should have worded that differently. Usually, Don sends out the voting a few days before whatever the deadline is. At least, I seem to recall that's how it works.
