Along with other writer-community websites, I use my wife, teenage girls, and whoever else to give me feedback on my drafts. "That really doesn't make sense, Dad", and "Your character was desperate in this scene, then comes off all sweet a few minuites later....big disconnect there" are some of the statements I'm apt to hear, and welcome every one of them. It's also amazing how many "DOHs!" you pick up when reading it aloud to someone.

Heat 2 here, and I agree. Not just serious, but a "genre" already overloaded with turgid lameness.

I did mine in about 3.5 hours yesterday. Decided to just pour my revulsion at the topic into it and run.

    By today, I only had to finish the ending. It was in bits and pieces. The first half or so felt acceptable,it was mostly just getting the end smoothed out as best as could be.

And I gave myself 4- 5 hours to do it. It worked out.

I am so sick of this story!  Which must mean that I am close to done.  My draft just needs to be proof read.  But now that I've re-read it, it might need another major re-write tonight.  Ouch.

I was afraid to get comedy, and was really glad to get drama, but as it turns out, I might have written a dramedy. :)  I'm glad to hear the judges are not known for their strictness. 

Does anyone actually know who the judges are?
