I feel pretty good. A final beta read who gave some great tuning points (thanks, Lisa, for stepping in!).

Either you'll hate it or merely dislike it, but I think it's interesting, and like I said, I really didn't think I'd come up with anything useful. But there it is, a big, beautiful, bright PDF all shiny and new!

Ooh, a lightening bolt - I can use one of those in my story, thanks!  Fantasy!

The 1st draft of 7-pages morphed into a 2nd draft of 8-pages. Went back to Page 1 three times and just finished a 3rd-ish draft that's one LINE over 5-pages. The original idea has been lost. This feels choppy. Losing perspective as midnight Saturday approaches. Will lose this stray line and go to bed. Tomorrow, I'll turn it over to my betas and let them shred it. I've come to realize that my ideas are too big for 5-pages.

I’m not entirely sure I wrote a crime caper. I may have veered off genre a bit. But I had a lot of fun with what I came up with! Good luck, everyone!

This script has come along much quicker and easier than this year's 2 flash fiction stories, just working through some formatting issues now. 
I dunno if what I have written is funny enough for a comedy, but I am happy to have pretty much finished as I usually submit with 5 mins to go. 

Speaking of formatting issues, anyone using Celtx know if it is ok to have to watermark "created using celtx"? Thanks!

First draft done. Now for a wee bit of distance from it (if that's possible in one day...)

It was a struggle but almost there. 

I usually either love or loathe what I've written. I'm not sure about this one.

On top of page 3. Dreading finishing it. Losing faith.

It's only Challenge 1, and I need to remind myself of that. Score a few points, move on.

Dude. Don't discount yourself. Your stuff is witty and original and skewed. This is in you. Let it come out.
