Thanks for getting the first up so quickly Don! Much appreciated!

Just wanted to remind people that we usually don't start the guessing game for at least one week.

Just a quick question, no hurry needed on the reply: should we at any point submit rewrites? Not so much a rewrite as a submission with corrected errors, such as spelling mistakes, punctuation, etc. Probably not fair to do this as the moderator has enough work. Just asking.

If you want to resubmit, wait until after the challenge is over.  Mistakes in the script are all part of the challenge.

Oh, and beware of mentioning spoilers in your reviews (this is for everyone).  If you need to mention story details in the reviews, include a little...


SPOILER SPACE



in your comments.

Must we really, Phil? Isn't it obvious. But if people think it's necessary, I will from here on in.

When I resubmit, it will be primarily for changing my aliases. But I also taking a few things under advisement and will weigh them in. I'd be sooo tempted to break rank and respond to some comments...

I agree that can be tough -- but frankly, even acknowledging that your script is amongst the 10 is kind of poor form.

I delete posts from authors who jump the gun, however, should I spot them.

I decided to edit my above response and put in "If...I'd be.." or something to that effect. But rest assured, when one of my two does come up, I will respond when the time is right.

Well, love him or hate him, it looks like you're getting the classic version.

I gotta be me...and I gotta be honest.  I don't mean to put anyone down or trash their scripts, but if I'm going to spend 30 minutes reading and writing feedback, I'm going to be telling ti like I see it.

I've just gone through my second box of tissues because of your harsh comments....

Read the first ten. I'm actually pleasantly surprised overall. Found three I really like. The others were interesting. I like it because of the wide range. We're not all reading the same scenario told differently over and over. I think the creative freedom really helped this go-round.

Looking forward to the next batch. And Jeff's comments. He'll recognize it, the second he tries to scroll. . Just to piss you off.

James

Oh you guys...c'mon now.  I may be harsh at times, but I'm fair and honest...at least I try to be.

I've read 6 so far, and think 1 is pretty decent to good.

Not a bad start to this OWC.  A couple standouts so far.  Bring on the next round.

As for the authors' pseudonyms, I found the theme.  Except for Alan Smithee and The son of Barbara McDonald L.  Only adds to the intrigue.

Sandra,

You have a good point.  With regard to the OWC (and perhaps ongoing for all scripts on the boards) I think I should explicitly say, "Read the Script before you read the Thread".

Considering that in my last review I spoiled like crazy.
