Don't stress about it, Man. I've got like 4 different ideas... Each worse than the last.


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.

I wonder if Jeff is pulling a fast one and faking us out so we donít know which one is his...  

Come on, Jeff. Nobody said you had to read them all. I can send you a list of the half that take the location in surprising directions.

Quoted from Scar Tissue Films


Well, Sean stated the criteria was that the object played a "key role"...so for me, to take the "essential" out of it is to change the criteria.

I might have a bit more sympathy with you if you hadn't run a campaign against my script on and off its thread in the first round for actually following the criteria and making the Bobble-head key all the way through.

In any road, I've come to Sean's way of thinking: This is an easy round. Now I've been writing, I've come up with about ten stories, all straight horror that all would use the Hand Sanitiser in a key/essential way.

Without wishing to harm those that already have a story...if anyone is struggling, just read the link Warren posted, look at the PROPERTIES of Hand Sanitiser and ask yourself how could any of those properties become absolutely key in a horror film.

Yeah, exactly. Easy as fuck.

Like Rene said...there are literally endless scenarios that use all genres of horror.  


Lol, sorry about that. Ironically, what hurt that story was...yup...making the bobblehead essential. I gave out my highest mark for prose on that story. I just thought the bobblehead stuff made it Mystery Science Theater. Your story is kind of the perfect illustration of my point.

In any case, I'm not bothered by the plane. Actually, I have a story idea I really like and I think some version of it could have potential. I doubt I can pull it off, but when I thought of the idea I remember thinking 'I bet Rick might like this idea'.

No, I'm out.  These parameters are goofy and will yield many of the same scripts.

I also can't stand the scoring and reviews.  I just don't get it...obvious poor scripts getting rave reviews and even, "My favorite!".  I an't take it.

Sorry, everyone.  Weak bow out from me.

I have an entry, it's pretty bad, but hopefully enough to keep me in the race.

Wife is back in the hospital.  Been a tough weekend. Unlikely to be able to get anything in unless she gets discharged today. Will read entries though even if I canít write anything.


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

I was going great guns, but the story is about 8 pages even after cuts.

So I went to a quiet bay and sunbathed naked instead, then cooled myself off with a nice swim.

Cutting it would undoubtedly weaken it, but the alternative is a brand new script...

Choices...
