Given that the challenge has been broadened to 'place of worship' this could be quite literally anywhere. Even Stonehenge. I'll put in extra effort to read the scripts this round... I might learn something.

I'm always confident.  It's the reviews that bring me back down to earth.

You can have other genres, it must have action though.

You gotta have other genres in there - pure action would be awful.

Chuck in some drama, comedy, sci-fi - whatever - as long as the action is clear it should be all good.

Agreed, no good action film is pure action. There is usually something at stake that creates drama.

Alright, almost midnight here and I'm done.

I have tried something different stylistically and I've looked up various formatting techniques to best tell the story - I'm mostly expecting a lot of "I'm confused" and "I don't like that". But, you gotta try new things, right?

I've written a story that will not appeal to the masses, but the type of story I love telling - so I have had a blast. I've also looked up action writing techniques and examples (not that I have adopted them all, I'm too tired to write properly now), so I guess I have already achieved what the point of this tournament is, writing.

I am genuinely intrigued about how the rest of you have gone about the trading card stipulation, should be interesting.

I really hope at least 1 person enjoys my script lol

Good night - I look forward to seeing you tear my script apart

It's gonna be another round that comes down to the wire for me. Been fighting a stupid migraine all day. Just woke up after a long nap and finally feel decent enough to write. Let's see if I can't work my magic.


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.

Well then you might love mine. I took a chance that I could actually write action.
