I can't be the only one sitting on pins and needles waiting. I had so much fun with the first round, I just want to make it to the next round so I can be challenged with three more prompts!

I can't imagine what it'll feel like waiting until next year's comp.

Well, that's it. That's the post.

Good luck everyone!

I'm with you! I've been double checking the dates and even put a reminder in my calendar for the results. I even reread my screenplay today. LOL It's nice to go back and read once you've set it aside for a bit. Good luck to you and everyone for round 2 and beyond!

Count me in too, I'd managed to compartmentalise it a bit before because it was a while away, but as soon as May started I've been obsessing. The results from short story were a day late and it nearly killed me so I'm trying to relax a bit and not pin all my hopes on one day, but bloody hell it's hard

Right there with you all. Obsessive? Me? Um, yes. 
Good luck to everyone!

Good luck! Results out next week.
The Short Screenplay challenge starts in September and that's always great fun, so if you haven't tried it before - maybe have a go?

It works like the Flash Fiction challenge, Round 1 is split into 2 rounds and the combined scores determine who goes through to round 2.

All 48 hours and all 5 page scripts.

Cheers

Paula

Ooh, that sounds enticing! Is that through NYC as well?

I competed in the Screenwriting Battle which was good fun.

Thanks for the heads up!

Look forward to seeing you there.

There is good news and bad news!

The good news: We have had very few deaths by anticipation
here at NYCM - there can always be an exception to any rule, 
so maybe sit down for a while so that if you faint the fall will 
not be as far.

The bad news: We aint gona find out till next week.
