And here we are, reading stories from strange people.  Who knows what we could catch!

I was thinking about wrapping my head in toilet paper and hiding in the bath tub under a pile of pillows in April, but I'll end up writing, too.  Heck, maybe my trip to Portugal will get canceled and I won't have to fear round 3 of short story.

I'd rather go to Portugal.  I'm annoyed that my trip to Lincoln, of all places, got canceled.

I'm excited to join in!

Just to be sure it's 12 pages, 8, and then 5 for the maximums? It's not a mistake that they arent feature length?

That is correct.  You are assigned genres and subjects at the start of each heat and then have 8, 3, and 1 day to write these so a feature length screenplay would be out of the question.  You're only guaranteed the first heat, have to advance to the other rounds where assignments will be different.

Make sure to read the rules and maybe read some of the past winners to get an idea of how it works.

I hadn't thought of this, but having 24 hours to write a feature length script explains so much...

I'm in, I guess! I thought I missed the Early Bird deadline, but it still gave it to me when I registered this morning!
