I have submitted my script for this round.

It stinks.

You have been warned.

Well, this is going down the shitter... pun intended.

I had an idea running through my head all weekend, it would be fantastic I thought.

Just wrote the first 3 pages and it's utter gobshite - so tedious and not funny at all.

15 hours to formulate a new idea and get it down... *Cries into his hands*

Yey lots of sewer entries!

A good writer would probably check out a sewer before writing about one but not me. I dont even want to google. Its my sewer, I furnish it the way I like

I think we’re going to have a lot of crappy entries this time around.

Just realised that there shouldn’t be any DNS given to any script this round as they wil all be (well they fucking should be) comedies in some shape or form.  Even if they aren’t that funny they will still be 100% meeting the criteria. I’m confident of that.

Yeah, with comedy it could be a hundred percent DNS.

Reread mine and rewrote some.  I'm not going to open it again. Now it's your problem, not mine.

I actually asked my friend to read it. And he said that he could smell the feces. Which means I've done well!

My goal in these scripts is pretty simple: try to make the writing and storytelling enough that the reader wants to turn the page. Very hard to do.

I guess I kind of judge scripts with that somewhat in mind too. If the story doesn't fully grab me but the writing and story is clear enough that I can zip through, it's decent. If the story and writing is good enough that I really want to get all the way to the end, that's damn fine work.

Excellent work Dave. 5s all round


Thanks, mate - although I risked a DNS for the whistle - very little importance in the story

I'd say that's a very good approach. I do something of the sort. Same as watching an actual movie. It's as good as your desire to continue watching.

Good luck to you all - I would treat each other kindly on the comedy aspect. For my money - the most difficult of the genres.  

Line I am most expected to see:

"Something smells funny"
