The summer ONE WEEK CHALLENGE is on!

The powers that be has caught up with all of his Simply Script stuff and has scheduled the next OWC to behin on July 18th.

For those of you new here, the OWC is an excercise to see how well people write under pressure.  I will announce a genre and theme and, those wishing to participate, will have one week to write and submit a script (15 pages or less).

Participation is voluntary.

This is not a competition; no gambling!

Sounds good.

Though I'm relatively new here, I'm definitely up for this. Looking forward to it.

Good stuff, hopefully I'll have broadband in my new flat by then.

Usually not one for a bump but I figure this could use a little top billing being it's one week away. On a unrelated note, busty Scriptgirl in a Yankee jersey, sweeeeeeet.

It isn't a contest.  It is a challenge.  We are all winners.

This sounds like a lot of fun.

I'm excited to see what the genre is!

Wait, this is supposed to simulate being under pressure? Dang, I'd done like five of these and never figured that out. Submitted two for one of them... Pressure?

I like the idea of going into this kind of thing totally cold and seeing what comes.

It's nice to be able to provide and get some feedback from others and shorts tend to keep people focussed on what counts-- or make decisions on what they figure should count anyways.

Looking forward to the next OWC.

It would be cool to have everyone ready for like a two hour challenge and just see what people can come up with.  I think that would actually be REALLY interesting.

Well, the reason it's a week long challenge is mostly for time zone considerations so everyone has a fairly equal time to get it done. If you were doing a couple hour challenge, you'd have to make it at least 24 hours so everyone had a chance. Sure, you could announce a two hour block, but you'd be on the honor system on submission and you'd have to find a happy time for everyone who wants to participate.

I'd want to see a one week (or month) challenge where you have to come up with a full length screenplay. Now there's a challenge. Crank out a first draft, and then rewrite it before the month is out.

That makes sense.  You could probably do it in some confusing way where we split it up into like four different time zone chunks and give each one a different genre and theme, releasing those at the appropriate time...but that gets a little confusing.

Full length would be pretty cool though, because that would be downright challenging (week or month) to confess, I usually write these one-week things the day their due.  That wouldn't exactly be the case with the full length.  It'd be interesting to see who could put forth something decent.
