Is anyone interested in writing another short screenplay while we wait for Round 1 results next month?
Seeing as we have all invested time and money in this experience why not get more out of it!

I can organize this over e-mail and randomize this years prompts so people get different groups to try. We could lengthen the time to a week so it's more casual and easy to participate. It would be a great way to get more experience in before the next round, and would also help pass the time!

I'm thinking it could start this Friday the 12th at midnight (ET, just like NCYM does), and go until the 19th! (So the 13th-19th would be 7 full days for writing.)

I also whipped up a (completely optional) bracket tournament on Challonge.com for people to enter if they are in the mood to judge some screenplays and compete for "fan favorite".

Maybe I'm going WAY overboard with this idea, but I thought I would throw it out there since I'm itching to write something else! 

Here is a sign-up sheet for the event that also includes the (optional) Tournament sign up. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19-_HgXp_54M_z15N1siEt1vhxu7xwbAT2CSSab6rYgA/edit?usp=sharing
I can keep people updated through e-mail on everything. :)

Thanks for reading and happy writing!

-Ivan

@PumpkinPatch61, Ivan, I think this sounds like a splendid idea and a great way to get more practice in! Thank you for setting this up and taking the initiative to organise something like this. You're right - we should make the most of this opportunity!

I for one know I need to work on refining my 5-page script structure... please count me in! Big smile I've signed up via the google doc (please let me know if it hasn't worked - Google Docs and I don't always see eye to eye!)

Oh this is really cool, thanks for starting this! I'll take any/all excuses to write a new screenplay. And more time to write is always fun, but it's funny, I may end up procrastinating anyway. Kind of have a busy week coming up, but I'll try to get something together!

Oh, and btw: I plugged this unofficial tourney you're doing on the 11:59pm Discord. Hopefully a few folks there see it and decide to join :)

Here's the link if you're not in it, in case you want to join this Discord server!

I think a full week for this practice run should help make more room for it! But if people would rather focus on other things that's ok!

I really like this idea as I would love to get better at short screenplays, but with flash fiction on this weekend and other stuff next weekI think I'll really struggle to get anything decent done.

But maybe another time when the stars align a little better.
