Cut, cut, cut. Choppity chop.

Doh, doh, doh, so much to go.

Getting closer. Written far better. Written worse. Struggled with this combo. The genre thing really added a layer of difficulty. Which is funny, because I think most scripts cross genres.

Thanks, Libby.

One question, when submitting, we should do it with our real name or under the pseudonym?

Use your real name when submitting, but not on the actual script.

Missing one doesn't mean you're out. Unless you want to be out, that is. Just a heads up.

Checked my vomit draft to see if it had polished itself from a turd to a diamond. No such luck. Back to the ole drawing board.  But first, I need to watch three hours of mindless tv so that Iím not wasting my time here.


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.

Somehow I managed to cram my story into 5 pages. Despite the fact that it's completely overstuffed, I actually like it quite a bit. I'm gonna sit on it for a few more hours before I submit it.

Looking forward to seeing how everyone else approached this brutal challenge. Thanks for doing this, Sean. My creative juices are surging. lol


An example of my writing...

FOR SATAN - short, horror, 14 pgs (revised draft) - A group of thrill-seekers explore a creepy old house on Halloween night. Think you know this story? Think again.

Done and dusted. Just submitted mine.

Can't believe I managed to enter something with those parameters. Good luck everyone!

That's allowed. And, actually, I think a better script will come of a 1-pager than a 5-pager. MP taught me that years ago. =)

Submitted, that was not an easy task. And it doesn't look barely as good in script format than it did when it was just scribbled down in my notepad.

I feel like there is a fairly obvious story and genre combination to take, I'll be interested to see how many people head in the same or similar direction.

At the very least I think there will be an overwhelming number that are the same genre.

Good luck everyone, though challenge for sure.
