We always have these disputes. I love the OWC and the world wouldn't be the same without it.

I wasn't involved in this one, but I enjoyed the reads. There were a handful of stellar ideas. More than one film worthy, in my humble.

I thought the concept was good as well. The phobia thing is very fertile ground.

Well done all.

I would live to host one in the near future. I have an interesting idea that would be unlike anything we've done before and one that would see less competition and more collaboration.

Sounds like you gotta great idea! Collaborating is great! I love collaborating.    If you need a prize.. I will throw in a free copy of Movie Magic. Kev and I won it in our last prose contest and we will not use it.

Just my two bobs worth - no one has ever been 'shunned' for not reading them all! If you choose to read them all - as Jeff does each time and I try and do when I enter - then good luck to you and go for it.

But the main prob started a few years back when a writer entered, read zero scripts and was voted the 'winner". He was called out but never even took the time to say anything at all! That pissed me off - not because their script won - it was good lol - but the writer didn't participate at all.

Look, we all know Jeff wears his heart on his sleeve with his reviews and I'm not trying to sugarcoat him - hmm nasty image that lol - but he hasn't really done anything different this time around as Dustin pointed out, and the non reviews continue to be an issue.

Cheers all.

Yep, what Dena says. I never collaborated but that sounds a lot of fun.
Hope the collaborator will be assigned.

We got 5th ($200 and software) in the short screenplay NYCMidnight...

We are in the flash fiction NYCMidnight now and will know in a couple weeks if we will advance to the third round. We came in 5th as well in the first round. Five seems to be our number but we really really want top 1, 2 or 3!

Stevie - I know the OWC you're talking about. The guy came around and now submits, does the reads and comments regularly. He's a good SSer now.
So good things happen - Don might hold another OWC and Jeff will come back. Let's hope so)

I guess my main issue is, at the moment my entry has had less than (edited - not enough) reads from members that can actually vote, and although I've been lucky enough to have some work produced and for me that is worth more than anything. I would still love to have the recognition of my peers by taking out the writerís choice.

Now I'm not really sure how the voting system works but I'm guessing a script that has over 20 reads has an advantage over ones with a lover read count.

I donít know if thatís selfish, but doesnít everyone secretly, or not so secretly want to get the writers choice?

Anyway, it is what it is and at the end of the day I think all the heated debate just shows how passionate everyone is about the craft and that can only be a good thing.

Personally I have no issue with Jeff's reviews; he has given me some great advice in the short time Iíve been here and also some comments that I just let slide off my back. Everyone has their way. Everyone sees things from a different perspective. You are never going to be able to put this many people together and have everyone have the same standard. I do think it is a shame with regards to the reads though.

EDIT ON THE EDIT

My words are not "not enough" thatís not how I feel so thatís a misrepresentation. The number I gave was higher than the actual amount of reads so no one would have been able to pick the script from that information. My point is only about how can a script with a low read count compare to one with a higher read count.

I agree with everything said. Although Jeff does not need any defending, he is a completely authentic and qualified OWchallenger and reviewer.

In general, I believe it must be considered that most participants here are at different stages of their lives, got different ambitions, made different experiences, come from a different age group, write about different topics and fields.

Of course, it is diverse. How couldn't itÖ

From my side, the board needs each and every individual comment, also those who are divergent and reasoned in a different way.

I'm not in but read a decent number. Congrats to those who entered.

Great job on running the challenge, Khamanna. You weathered pitchfork attacks and drama.

Looking forward to the reveal. Lets all get drunk.


That rug really tied the room together.
