Will be registering as soon as my tax refund lands in my bank account!! :)

I'm also looking forward to running the Master List again! Tongue


I just went through all three master lists and thanked Suave for every post he made.  That had an effect on his point count!  Big smile

If Pelosi steals your tax refund let me know.  My buddy Donald will take care of it for you.

Haha!  I was wondering just what happened as my score went though the roof.

Got to Round 3 in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Got Honorable Mention in the 2016 competition. Had to sit out in 2018, so I'm ready to come back and place with the winners this time. Hey, I can dream, can't I?

Officially registered!! My goal for this year is to actually reach 12 pages. This will be my fourth attempt. And I have never hit that 12th page.

2019: TBD
2018: Historical Fiction (10 pages) - Got an HM for this one! :)
2017: Fantasy (5.5 pages) - This one was absolute torture.
2016: Horror (10.5 pages) - My first attempt at writing a screenplay EVER.

I have a question:  Last year was my first time ever, and they posted the results with their loglines.  So we could get a flavour of those that didn't join the forum...  But they didn't do that for short screenplay competition.  Do you think they've given up because there are too many entrants?  Anyone have any knowledge about this?!

If I had to guess...I would say it's because the two contests have different formats for Round 1. The Screenwriting contest gives 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th... while Short Screenplay gives points to the top 15 scripts. So there's just too many loglines to list! :p

So. Madly, I just signed up for it. It starts at 5am the morning after I get home from a work trip. I start travelling on 24th March, so.... I'll be exhausted!! I'll probably contemplate the prompts while lying on a foam roller on the living-room floor LOL I'll be in far more need of exercise than hours of sitting at my computer BUT tis done. My first Screenplay comp. The current Short Screenplay comp produced my first ever screenplays (as FMau), and I really enjoyed it, so we'll see how the longer format works out.
