Introduce yourself....


G'day ... I'm Scarlet Screenwriter ... I'm in ... for the umpteenth time since 2010, as well! 

How's Officer Plod?  Getting cold up there yet?  I'm off to California for a month ... see my folks ... keep my name in the will ... Class Reunion ... dodge a few bullets and Trump supporters ... I'll actually be there for SSC Round One ... I wonder if the Coriolis Effect will make a difference?

The day you give up Scarlet is the day I stop doing it too...you're part of the furniture now...the lumpy old armchair to my faded and frayed sofa...

Welcome to everyone else - don't worry those who have never done it before..,here's the place to give it a try and I'm sure you'll find everyone really supportive.  We all have to start somewhere!

I'm back this go-round. Took some time off and suddenly realized it had been a year since I wrote something new. I have participated in both the screenplay and short screenplay challenges in the past. Excited to be back!Clap

What's up gang!?  I'm super stoked for this challenge.  I just got done with that last short script challenge, and thought I'd have to wait a year for the next one.  Pleasantly surprised to see this one pop up.  Slightly different than the last one, but pretty close.
 
Wish Round One wasn't over Halloween weekend, but I'll make it work. Haha
 
Good luck everybody!  This is such a valuable experience, so enjoy it!  Take the feedback, absorb it and move on.  Never know! It gets you writing, and could give you some nice portfolio pieces.
 
Even though this is the one that got me eliminated after round 2, I thought it was one of my better ones.
Take a peek, if you like.  It's short.

Has anyone had any experience with using Scrivener to write screenplays? It has a screenplay mode/template. Wondering if it's any better/worse than some of the free options, such as Celtx?

I joined. I've a published novel, poems and short stories--but never a screenplay. Are any of the prior winner's available to read?

I'm looking forward to this!
