Will this sink me? I hoped to go longer but a crazy, busy last-minute week set me back to submitting right before deadline. The story seemed to naturally conclude in 9 pages... but in your guys' experience, is that 12-page mark an important factor?

THANKS! This was fun Smile

I am in the exact same boat! Except mine is only 5.5 pages. Pinch

This week hit me harder than I expected, and I was not able to devote as much time as I would have liked.

NO ... It is a MINIMUM of one page and MAXIMUM of 12 ... with no noticeable cramming ...

I've only come out at 11 ... sometimes less ... I feel complete ...

I wrote two scripts this round and both only clock in around 8 pages. And that's with letting some dialog breath and breaking up some text.

After having success in some of the other contests without hitting the word max, I've decided not to stress about something coming in shorter, unless it feels incomplete. My script was 10 pages for this round and I'm decently happy with it.
