  • Fun Halloween short script contest!

    If anyone's up for this, shout! Show of hands, please.

    • Think Halloween or horror themes, but if you don't like that, then just write something else instead -- it's a suggestion not a hard rule. Entertain yourself!
    • No blowing dust off old contest scripts or using opening scenes from a full length spec script -- write something new for the contest!
    • 8 pages max. -- can be shorter if you like.
    • Start writing now! Don't leave it until the last moment, that has never worked for you in the past!
    • Submission deadline is midnight Fri 28 Oct, so entries can be read and votes sent by Oct 31st -- let's not leave it until Halloween has passed and interest dies.
    • Export formatted txt or pdf files and email or PM to me.

    For posterity's sake, the entries thread is here and the results thread is here.

    Nostalgia trip: here are the Halloween contests for the past 10 years, for your entertainment. Take a stroll down memory lane and see what you have to beat! (The real nostalgia is seeing so many nicknames who don't post any more!)

            Looks like we have enough for a quorum, though it's minimal numbers... but maybe others will get swept up in the excitement (!) as the month rolls on.

            3 weeks till deadline! I wonder who's started writing, or outlining, or has closed their eyes and imagined the glory of winning the contest.

              Adding myself to the damned list…er, the list of the damned?….the list.
              thanks for adding the links to previous contests. Fun read.

                Did I say 3 weeks till deadline? Make that 2 weeks! How's the outlining and writing going? Dare I guess?

                  It's taken me two weeks to come up with one page so I very much look forward to reading everybody else's pages.

                  I did post this page on facebook and twitter when the contest first started. I hope that'll get some new people involved. We always need new blood. HA HAHA. <--- evil laugh

                        Here we are in the final week and 1 entry received so far (2 if I count mine), I have a spooky feeling about this contest!

                            Just a nudge, 4 days remaining to deadline, including today. If you're scribbling something, good job! 🦇

                              In case it will inspire a few people, I will offer a free 1-year membership to the main site to the winner of this contest. (If you happen to be a current subscriber I will extend your membership by 1 year.)

                              Getting writing! 🦇🦇
