Reading some of the posts here, I see myself in good company since I also arrived somewhere at the 70 page mark with a FADE OUT written, which felt good of course.

Since many of you helped me: especially Gabe gave great feedback I took to heart and Kham who inspired a lot of my attempt, I like to share an interesting experience I made today. Although you probably know it,,,, ;-) but I myself forgot it as well, how powerful it is, so maybe, it helps you to remember.

Spend the 1$ on ink and paper and print out your screenplay. This today solved some issues in my script I wouldn't have believed I get done in this quantity.

It's just different to hold the paper in hand. A laptop screen you stare on can't compare in that area. Especially when checking the set-ups and pay-offs, rhythm, transitions, audience receiving, expectations, planted distractions. It's just multiple times as effective when been able to scribble everywhere and flip back and forth and in general good to get off from the 'machine'.

@ regarding the submissions imo there's no anonymity needed here since it's about the long route, the big game. The parameter explanaition has never been changed though, even as it has been proclaimed that it's all 'open'. ??? What do you think? And also what do the hosts think? Or rather rule :-)

For me, it really comes down to being a slow writer. Lol. Unfortunately it takes me time to put the idea on paper. I would like to submit something that I know Iíve done my best, even though others will slaughter it. Lol.

I will submit this. Unfortunately, it looks like itís going to be after the deadline.

Well, maybe we could ask Sean to give us a couple more days.
I do want to get everything in before I submit as well and weed a bit for grammar.

It wouldn't help me personally (I start a business trip early Friday), but not against the idea at all.

I'll be able to read PDFs while remote, just not update my FinalDraft doc.

Was able to get the fourth vignette onto the page, though I'm not happy with it. Third vignette and finale still to go.

A deadline is a deadline. Others should not suffer since I couldnít keep up with deadline and criteria.

Khamanna, if you feel uncomfortable in submitting in your script, donít do it. I would encourage you to do so since your script is better off than mine. Lol. But itís your choice. I will still read it and your familiar how I review scripts. This applies to others.

I would be just as uncomfortable to submit mine in a week or two as I'm now, lol.

I'm just saying better have four scripts in the challenge as opposed to one or two.

Yes, the more the messier... I mean, merrier.

I'm pretty confident I'll get something in.

I think it's safe to say that as of this moment, I am out of this challenge.

Has anyone submitted yet? I know chrisbodily did. Iíll probably submit it via the regular route and not via 7wc to keep things fair.

Ah, don't worry that much, Gabe. I rechecked the foregone 7WCs and there wasn't even a voting, which I find absolutely correct btw. I'd also see no need for anonymity or anything... there's no sense to find for me.

How many pages do you have by now?

Don't know of anyone other than Chris. I'll need to get mine in by Thursday evening.

The hardest part for me, being unaccustomed to the genre, is breaking the rule about characters suffering for their bad deeds. I got one guy who really deserves to be ground into hamburger... but doesn't.

Sometimes the characters come up with their own endings lol. WeÔŅĹll give it a read and see what we can come up with.

I may submit this with only 3 tales since the fourth one doesn’t match with the other three.

Don't want to be a party pooper so submitting my 72 pager.

Cannot find a place where I can insert dropbox link though.


I don't know how to do it I guess.


Edit: Don got it!

So submitted, now I got your back! Submit away now, you don't have to fear for your grammar and exposition in dialogue!

Just about eight hours to go for anyone who's planning to submit (or, if you already have, to rewrite). No matter what, I just want to say I'm proud of everyone who enters or attempted it because a feature, no matter the kind, is always an undertaking. =)
