Quoted from eldave1

Maybe each writer would be assigned a SS Peep as a main character.

Lololol, Dave. This is very funny. I wonder how many will pick Jeff as one of the main SS characters. I think he will pick himself, too.

Very funny, Dave. Although easier than these guys have it as the character development is already done. Still though, this a nice little freestyle.


Thanks -

Hope Jeff takes it as the homage it's intended to be.

I don't envy these writers - this is and looks like it will continue to be one whale of a challenge. Maybe the most difficult we've had given the time constraints.

Oh, believe me, if you people keep forcing me to come back and do this every year, this is going to be the way I punish you... Lol. =)

Quoted from Dreamscale


I tried to disguise my writing in week 1.  In week 2, you will all be stumped...even Stumnpzian!


I finally read all of Round 1, some more closely than others. Iím thinking yours was the one with Billy Martin. In any case, I liked that one.

P.S. Iím out. Too much going on to comment or think up something for the sewer. Am enjoying Mr. Blondeís Tournament, though. Great spectator sport. Hope he does it next year.

Doing my beast not to go into the week 2 write with 3 hours to go...

SO...

I've been planning my script all day, while I drink heavily and lounge in the pool - 103 degrees here today.  Pool is 85 - PERFECT!

I have my story and characters worked out and even names.  One is named Warren.

I hope to write this early, so I don't go through what happened last Monday evening/night.

I'm shockingly very comfortable this time around.

Just finished mine.  Also just finished punching myself violently in the head after re-reading it. You have permission to do the same, although your reviews may do the job instead.


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

You inspired me. That would have been cute. Maybe each writer would be assigned a SS Peep as a main character.


               TO DREAMSCALE WITH LOVE

FADE IN:

INT. MUNICIPAL WATER SEWER - NIGHT

Darker than an OWC challenge set in a cave.  

DREAMSCALE (45?), beer belly, the epitome of gender-neutral, paces along the concrete walkway alongside the river of piss and shit.  

ELDAVE (63), the last drops of testosterone left his body a decade ago, lumbers behind him. You can just tell he's a know it all type with skin that is nearly opaque. He's essentially unfilmable.

Dreamscale stops, bends over - retrieves a bound, sewage-stained, script from the concrete walkway.  He takes a sniff - then opens the script.

DREAMSCALE
Shit!

ELDAVE
What'd you expect? We're in a sewer.

DREAMSCALE
Not the smell. The writing.
(holds up script)
First page. Two orphans!

ELDAVE1
And...?

Dreamscale stops - thumps Dave on the chest.

DREAMSCALE
Two lines per page. That means two-hundred lines per script.
That means it's one-hundred and twenty pages long when it
could have easily been one hundred and ten.
(thumps his chest)
You get me, bro?

Dave just stands there - blinks his eyes. Crickets.

Dreamscale resumes his walk as he reads the script.

Eldave follows behind.

DREAMSCALE
Jesus Christ! Plus two wrylies on page three.
(points at water)
It belongs in the sewer.

Eldave stays in place as Dreamscale marches on. The script
he tossed slowly floats back towards Eldave.

Through the murky water we see the blurry title: "CASA BLANCA."

DREAMSCALE (O.S)
(calling back)
Probably filled with a bunch of We sees and camera
directions too.

A whistle SQUEALS in the distance.

A manhole cover is removed, illuminating the sewer.
Dreamscale points to the opening.

DREAMSCALE
I'm out!



Excellent work Dave. 5s all round

Just flipped open the laptop. 9:45 am, public holiday and I have no plans other than getting something down.

Surely I can make it happen in 12 hours. I have to submit today as I'm back at work tomorrow.

Man, I was super confident about my script last night as I was going to bed. Re-reading it now, this may be the worst thing I've ever written. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with for this round. Gotta feeling there's gonna be a lot of weird stories this go around.


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.
