I can't figure out a way to correlate forum names with real names to see who on the forum is moving through to the second round, so I thought I'd just ask: Who got through?

Not me...I tied for 7th overall in my group. Quite happy regardless since this was my first rodeo.  Best of luck to all of the finalists!

Wait... round 2? First round isn't over yet. Or have you guy's submitted your stories early? Or have I missed something. *panicking*

I think we are referring to the Short Screenplay Challenge -- not the Short Story...you're good!

7th for me as well with 17 points.

Regardless of the outcome, I enjoy the writing.

Stephanie, you actually tied for 5th. (I'm in your group).  Two writers tied for second which meant you and the other 5th place writer did not proceed to the next round!

I made it through the big cut for the first time since I started participating in NYC Midnight, so I am very excited! I took 30 points in my heat so while I'm psyched, I'm also starting to feel a bit of pressure! LOL

Congratulations on your perfect score! Though I can see how that would put a little pressure on :)

I made it through with 29 points total. I had an extremely difficult time condensing my story down to the five page limit and was cutting words literally down to the last sixty seconds. I think I got the title page in place in the last 30 seconds and the logline done in the last 15. It was a race to the finish. Losing some of the character descriptions killed me because I knew I wanted them in there, but it was a sacrifice of five words here, five words there...or the 5 pages would be 6.

Congrats on those who made it to Round 3! Hope it went well. This was another tough one for me, not sure about all of you!
There are always tales to tell.

I scraped through top of my group - most of us who scored well in the first heat, did less well in 2nd heat...so I managed to sneak highest overall score, despite hating everything about my 2nd script!
