Theme: Goodbye

Two entities are saying goodbye. One entity is leaving on a 'journey' (physical or metaphysical). One or the other (but not both) know the leaving entity isn't coming back. You can't actually write, "I'm/You're/We're not coming back."

Guist: Say, "I'm/You're/We're not coming back," without saying, "I'm/You're/We're not coming back."

Genre: Open (drama, war, scifi, comedy, horror, romance, etc.)

Script length: up to 6 pages

Scripts due to simplyScripts.com/owc on Friday September 24th Midnight EDT

+++++

The "Rules":

  • This isn't a contest - it's a challenge. There are no official prizes.
  • Participants must read and comment/review in the discussion board at least 10 other scripts submitted or your work will be removed (no harm, no foul. I understand that life gets in the way.)

Quoted from ReneC
Define "entity."



entity
plural entities
Definition of entity
1a: BEING, EXISTENCE especially : independent, separate, or self-contained existence
b: the existence of a thing as contrasted with its attributes
2: something that has separate and distinct existence and objective or conceptual reality
3: an organization (such as a business or governmental unit) that has an identity separate from those of its members

Hmm, how to write the sequel to The Martian in under 6 pages.
Might have to rework Interstellar or Gravity instead.

Or 1917 or Saving Private Ryan....

Characters who could have lived if it weren't for other character's stupidity. Love it.

I'll be back...
Oh, really? That's what you think.

Just amusing myself in an attempt to inspire.

Nice idea. I have to re-write a short I've optioned and change it from based in the US to based in the UK this weekend, but I'll have a think and see what pops up.

Aaa, I'm getting ready for something which I can't announce here because I'm superstitious.
so, I can't participate, but it sounds fun and a lot of possibility for heartfelt dramas. I miss those, haven't cried after seeing a movie for a long time
