Hey, I didn’t make it to round 2 but I was hoping to still try and do a second round for myself by using a randomizer to pick a heat number but when I go to the website I only see the assignments for round 1. I see the clock counting down for round 2 but not the new assignments. Does anyone know why this would be or if there is some other way to see them so I can pick a heat for myself? Thanks so much and good luck everyone

Thanks so much Lisa, I appreciate it! Looks like a total of 12 heats so I entered them into the randomizer and it picked heat 4 for me - Suspense, fearmongering, a baby. Should be interesting.

Heat 9 again - Horror/A wish list/A security guard

Kicking some ideas around and wondering where to start. It’s not easy to be original with horror. And to condense a story in just 8 pages is quite a challenge!

Feeling the adrenaline pump. And loving it.

Good luck to everyone :-)

My first was in last year's short screenplay. After much screaming, yelling, and gnashing of teeth, I actually had a lot of fun with it. Good luck!!! Just remember, light, happy, and sappy! :)

Actually, the basis of the word "plumber" is latin - relating to someone who works with lead. Going back to Roman times...

Time to read up on pipe fitting and plumbing jargon then.  At least it somewhat limits the time period.  

You know, the Romans had plumbing. And bunches of invasions. Just sayin'.Evil Smile

Actually, the basis of the word "plumber" is latin - relating to someone who works with lead. Going back to Roman times...


In Latin wouldn't they work with plumbum?  Just sayin'.  Try to keep the natrium out of the water pipes, though...

This is the most research I've ever done for an NYCM script but I have to say I'm now quite excited about the prospects for it!

I always thought I wanted Historical Fiction.

Thought.

Damn. What I wouldn't give for a punchy political satire right now.

I've enjoyed mine, but then I'm a history nut.  Given you don't have a clean weekend to work on it...yeah.  You'll smash it, though!  Big smile

Heat 2: Action/adventure / reputation / a groundskeeper

LOL - Hey there, heat-mate! Groundskeeper Willy, that's hilarious. Thank goodness I didn't read this until *after* I finally came up with an idea, or I'd never have been able to get past that visual. LOL

Wicked! A third heat-mate! Can't go wrong with Caddyshack. LOL

This one almost lends itself to humor. Is it me, or is this combo actually kind of tough??? I mean, groundskeeper almost feels like the opposite of action/adventure. Tongue

Hey, round 1 heat-mate! :) Looks like we're in different heats this time, but I got Action/Adventure, which isn't too far off Thriller. How are things going with you this time around? I'm finally nailed down on a story idea and just have to write it. LOL

Who said a Historical Fiction couldn't also be a political satire? TONS of fodder in history for a blend like that, I think. Big smile

Why not set your piece in ancient Rome, make the main character a plumber trying to solve a problem or devise some "new" plumbing method, and have the whole thing go awry when... someone... invades. If you wanted to infuse PolSat into it, the invaders might be in need of "the facilities," only to have plumber guy tell them they are for Roman citizen only.
