*Votes included votes from non-participants who read every single script.  Votes for the writers own script were screened out in the final tally.  Writers Choice top four and Readers Choice top four were virtually identical.  Oddly enough, writer's votes for his own script made no difference in the final outcome.  Generally speaking, the higher voted scripts had the highest standard deviation.

Thanks to everyone for the great notes on my script. I've already (slightly) re-written it to iron out a few of the issues that were pointed out by the great group here. (For anyone that cares, I'll detail the changes in the script-specific thread.)

Congrats to Steve and Richard... and good luck to you both!

Exciting stuff.


Those three were my top three, as well. Though obviously, I'm biased!

Congrats, Challenge leaders!

Also, a shout out to Don for letting those of us who read all entries cast our vote.

A couple of entries, (apart from the front runners) that stuck with me after the reading was done - Blood Diamonds, and Nanobe. Thanks for the vibe and visuals, Rene and Dustin.

13th Leeds should have placed.

I guess the structure was too much for most peeps to get, but it was a solid effort and the way it tied a real "monster" into it, was quite well thought out.

So, how many entrants didn't review a single entry?  To those who read everyone...especially those who didn't enter, NICE JOB!!

Thanks to Don for a fresh take on the October OWC, been a while since I could find the time and idea to enter.  

Congrats to Paul and Richard, and thanks to those who took the time to read even though they didn't enter.  I thought I had a couple of the writers pegged but I was way off the mark.

I was also surprised not to see the 13th Leeds up there - that was one that stuck with me.
