Default Valentine's Day short script contest, voting deadine Feb 14th

Soooooo, anyone up for a V.D. contest this year?!

Good practice for writing romcom scripts, maybe. Or any other genre/theme that comes to mind when you think about Valentine's Day.

Tentative deadline would be 7th February so there's a week left for reading and voting, leading up to results being posted around the 14th. That's a month to write 8 pages (max. length, no min.) which should be pretty do-able for most.

Reply here if you're interested!

Edit: and 5 members were, read the entries here.

For posterity, the results thread is here.

Just FYI and possibly reading pleasure, links to previous V.D. contests:
2014 - 10 entries | results
2013 - 11 entries | results
2012 - flopped due to lack of entries
2011 entries - 5 entries | results

I've been away for a long while, but I'd like to try to cook something up..

Wow, blast from the past. I had forgotten I had done this comp in 2011. I got to find this short and do a rewrite. It must be somewhere in my hard drive...

I would have said, if enough folks show interest and the contest actually runs: export to PDF and email this to me. I'll post the entries anonymously (author names removed).

Woot, looks like we might have a quorum.

Obviously I would say to anyone who's intending to enter, feel free to start writing now.

PS - if anyone's looking for an EVEN BIGGER challenge, see Cmmora's ScriptFever Writing Exercise thread in this forum.
