Quoted from ReneC


We're chomping at the bit to see the final round of scripts, but we're being good little patient SSers so the amazing and fantastic Don doesn't feel pressured.


I have no idea how Don and Sean have been able to keep this thing going so strong. Some sort of sorcery is at play.

The last OWC I hosted nearly killed me. 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.

Round 1 -- 20 participants
Round 2 -- 21
Round 3 -- 18
Round 4 -- 15
Round 5 -- ??

We're losing 3 a round for the last three rounds so I'll say we'll be at 12.

Though I had time to think about my story, I literally had three hours to type it up.

Do plan to fix up all five entries incorporating the feedback I received.


Feature-length scripts:
Who Wants to Be a Princess? (Family)
Glass House (Horror anthology)

TV pilots:
"Kord" (Fantasy)
"Mal Suerte" (Superhero)

Additional scripts are listed here.

I guessed 10 on the other thread, I'm sticking with that.

I'm trying as hard as I can to forget my round 4 abomination. It haunts me. The others, I actually plan to go back to.

I'll counter your "linear extrapolation of chaotic processes" card with my:

"Post hoc ergo propter hoc" card.

It rained last week at my house and 5 participants dropped out.

It rained again this week, therefore 5 more will drop out. Warren is correct. It'll be 10.

I really want to see who wrote what for round 4. Some really solid scripts considering the criteria, and I have no idea who they belong to.

I'm guessing you've been 'redeemed' this last round?

There's no "redeeming" Warren.  He may have to go find "sanctuary" with Paul.  

That's all I got. And I stole one of them from the previous post.

Very good, all round, but I have no idea what you’re talking about
