Sorry, guys, I'm at work right now. For info, check out the 2018 Writers' Tournament board for an indication of what it's like until I get home and can give a more detailed response. Thank you.

One request: could we ask writers to not comment on their own scripts or their opponentsí, at least in the early rounds with pair-matches?

I think a good request would be to keep the topics a bit more generic especially as far as politics go. Early rounds had the White House (not so bad) and the final round had some very specific US legislation and locations. I feel in these instances the US writers definitely have an advantage.

Obviously a non-US writer can research all this stuff but it's time which could be spent developing an idea or writing.

But I'm sure you will run it as you see fit

If you follow the link to the old thread that LC (Libby) put up you will get a decent understanding.

The rules to each round are explained as the rounds happen as well.

I forgot all about my easily forgettable clown comedy skydiving onto the White House.

What happened to March? HUH, WHAT HAPPENED TO MARCH!?!?!?


That may not be a dealbreaker this time around...

As for the second part, I was ready to go in March, but it would've interrupted the April OWC and I didn't want it to do that.


Quoted from FrankM
Maybe Iíll make it to the second round this time.


I don't think that'll be a worry this time. I learned a lot of lessons last year. And, I learned how to alliterate.

Won't be a concern. You have my word.

A fair criticism and one that I have accounted for.

They will be on opening day (and, no, that's not the same day that round 1 begins).


Quoted from JEStaats

Fate will decide, as it did last time. No favoritism will be shown. Could be 5 rounds of comedy or you could have not a lick of comedy for the entire time.


Quoted from Grandma Bear

Make me. Lol. But, am I picking up some subtext that you're not planning to participate, Pia? Ha, more alliteration.

It's back....and this time...it's mad!
I can't commit, I promised myself I'd write my first novel this year and I'm exactly halfway through the first draft. Gonna keep focusing on that until it is done.

Best of luck all who enter and I'll check things out when I can.

I would like to give this tournament a try. Sounds like it will be challenging, and a good writing exercise. Similar to the OWCs, though I like that the time constraint is even shorter. Times like these I'm happy to be unemployed Please put my hat in the ring.

If I may, since everyone is weighing in with suggestions...

I know not all of us have traditional work weeks; however as one of those that do, I found it difficult to get the story idea on a Friday, and then submit the script by the following Friday. Because all my writing time, which was Sat-Sun, was spent coming up with the story...

If we got the parameters on Monday, then we'd have all week to formulate, and then the weekends to write.

Just my 2 cents...

Otherwise, I will turn in D minus work...

Given what we've been going through, I didn't think I should enter.  But my wife encouraged me to do it because she knows I haven't written anything in forever.  So I'm considering it.  We get an update of her condition on Thursday, so maybe we'll be in a better place by decision time on Friday.

Sorry to be awkward - Can you take my name back off the list? - I've reread the rules and realized we only have a weekend to write each script, I have zero time over weekends to write anything.

Didn't you "sign up" for this last year and then not even write anything?

If only the challenge was based on a man in love with football players from San Francisco, you'd win hands down!

Quoted Text

Quoted from Stevie

Iíll have a crack at it but Iím away on the weekend of 15/16 June so that may bugger me lol


Quoted from Dreamscale


Didn't you "sign up" for this last year and then not even write anything?

If only the challenge was based on a man in love with football players from San Francisco, you'd win hands down!






Actually, Stevie demolished me in the first round. But I'm a Stones man and go the long hard route unlike that sentimental hipster fest. Bring it on Stevie

I read a feature comedy of Stevie's many years ago that was one of the only scripts to ever succeed in making me laugh out loud. Pretty much the only other one that made me laugh was a pro script called Mean Moms.

That's so awesome, Gary! So happy to hear the good news.


An example of my writing...

Excellent news, Gary. I've read everything I can find on cancer the last 7 months. The knockout-punch breakthroughs are really close, I think. We just have to make it a few years and we have a chance. I'm already beyond what would have been expected even a couple of years ago, and I feel great. You guys can do this!

Wish I could.

I have family in the entire month of June - so there's just no way I can enter. Would have liked to - believe me - hate not competing for this one.

Excellent, I've got a busy weekend but I'll get an idea worked out in my head and have it ready to put to paper when the week starts.

Look forward to seeing what you have in store for us.
