Thanks for the response.

I noticed the submission form was different, just wasn't sure if I should double-down on identifying the script. But you've squashed any doubt. 

Thanks! And good luck to you as well!

Just submitted my script, with just under two hours to spare. I feel less stressed about this one than the flash fiction, probably because in this contest I'm mainly just trying to get some practice in. I'd love to do well but writing two scripts and getting feedback is going to be reward enough (it is also a good reward for flash fiction but I have more hope about advancing there).

Also, my prompt actually seemed to fit together better than what I got for flash fiction. I'm group 19, which is comedy/a costume party/an ice sculpture. I got a solid idea right away and just ran with it. I'm not sure if it's funny enough but I enjoyed it.

Luckily it was quick.

Hey guys... have you faced any problems with the Forum lately? Couldn't log in for the last couple of days for some strange reason.

I am in Group 6 (drama, dialysis center, rabbits foot). I think I did pretty okay but then the judges might think differently. :) Not going to stress though! ;)  Also doing NaNoWriMo...

Any Group 6-ers out here? Would love to exchange notes. Cheerio.

Hi, all! I just dug out my old username/password from the short competition waaaaaay back in the olden days of 2008. It's nice to be back.

I've used Scrivener to write a few test screenplays, and it kinda fine. I had an issue with the output, as I could not use Courier Final Draft or Courier Prime due to some weird baseline issues, but plain ol' Courier worked fine.

I tried Writers Duet online to write screenplays and Amazon Storywriter online, and found that I like both of them--Amazon Storywriter is simpler, and Writers Duet has more bells and whistles. Both allow collaboration, but WD is, in my opinion, more robust in collaboration. I don't remember if WD has an offline mode, but AS does - you can install a Google Chrome app that lets you create and edit existing stories and then sync them when you go online.

I'll probably use Scrivener or Amazon Storywriter.
