Some of the links here don't match, guys. Have notified Don.

Opening from below separately is fine until fixed.

Thanks for getting these up so quickly and thanks to Libby for the challenge.

The reads have been enjoyable.  The parameters resulted in a bunch of varied stories and as a reader, I highly appreciate that.

Running into some parameter issues - but that is par for the course for OWCs. Enjoyed them nonetheless.

FYI, one of the prompts is courtesy of Don.
And it was used too.

My guess is...
I just make up these rules, I have no control over them.

Okay - done and done.

Nice job group.

As a reader, I REALLY liked the framework for this one - multiple prompts and genres. There really were no two scripts alike and the pages flew by.  

Thanks to Libby and Don - great challenge.

Thanks, Dave.

I'm pretty chuffed too.
Some really great production-worthy scripts in this challenge, and very entertaining to boot.
Thanks up front to all who partook. Is that a word? Yep, I think so.

Agree with Dave, the criteria allowed for some very different scripts to emerge which was great from the read perspective.

And may be just my opinion but is the quality of the scripts in challenges getting better?

Thanks for organising Libby, and I promise to read the instruction next time and not leave myself two hours to write a script

Totally agree. The caliber of entry lately (Writers Tourney and last couple OWCs) has really gone up in all aspects. A lot of the usual suspects but some newer entrants too. I'm only halfway through this lot but am truly impressed with what I've read. Kudos to everyone that has entered.

I have a feeling the bonus for you Ant is that now you have another script pretty much done and ready to post after the OWC. Not a bad two in one.

P.S. Did you see on the other thread I posted Don's link to SS pandemic masks.
