Short Screenplay kicking off tomorrow, who else is in? 

I did the Writing Battle screenplay comp earlier in the year but haven’t done a NYCM one in a few years, schedule/timing was always off. Excited to try the shorter 5-page and glad it’s the same format as FF where we get to write at least two.

Last year’s winner is now up on the main site.

I'm in! Looking forward to it, I went out in the first rounds for mf100 and short story, and my screenplay comp just went all kinds of wrong lol. It'll be a nice push to get writing again, my own projects are currently languishing in a dark corner of my laptop.

Glad to be joining you folks!

Haven't ever entered this comp before, so looking forward to seeing how it works and getting to grips with everything - good practice, if nothing else! :D

I'm in! And with this one, I will have participated in all of the NYCM challenges! Yay!

I'm also doing the Flash Writing Battle. WB prompt comes out two hours earlier, so my plan is to write a sloppy first draft of my Flash before NYCM drops their prompts, shelve it until Sunday, come up with an idea for NYCM, sleep, work on my screenplay all day Saturday, then polish both on Sunday. 

This plan will work! It is foolproof. I have NOT overextended myself. 

Praying that the genre gods don't hit me with a Political Satire thunderbolt, as my complete cluelessness about that genre might derail me.

Hats off to those doing both NYCM and WB, you are quite brave! I am curious to see what genres come up for WB this time.

Yes! First time in this one. I’m looking forward to seeing how it works! Will be a nice distraction waiting for the results of the Screenwriting final round. I’m itching for my prompts! 

(It’ll also be nice injection of life into the screenwriting forums again)

Good luck everyone!

I am in. Hoping I don't get Political Satire. Having done that in the screenwriting and then in the flash short story I might be a little tapped out there - neither of those stories were that genre, just worked out that way.
Have fun all, good luck with the prompts!

I have both never written a screenplay before and never done a flash writing competition before.... currently wondering if I've had a flash of insanity in signing up! Well. I'm sure after a weekend of frenzied writing, it will be more than a flash LOL
