    Comment Line Z1. "This clever script is executed with economy and skill. Moreover, the premise is potent in this writer's hands, with original and expansive possibilities. A riveting read I won't soon forget.-
    Reader reactions like Comment Z1 inspire me to push my writing farther with each story. Eventhough it is a 1/6250 chance the reader is talking about mine, I want it to be mine, either now or someday. I've been writing for 10 years and I'm not about to hit cruise-control. Thanks for the inspiration that hard work (whoever's it is) gets recognized.

      Comment Line E2. "Very few scripts actually manage to have a strong voice, so when I finally read one that does, I revel in it. And oh the revelling I did here.-

      Comment Line F2. "The writer offers an original story and a unique voice, filling each page with vibrant dialogue and rich characterizations.-

        some more...

        Comment Line G2. "This script kicks ass in every way. The action sequences never stop yet the writer manages to make us understand the unsympathetic protagonist . . .. The structure is equally great - lean, character driven, with a ticking clock that's the next best thing to a bomb.-

        Comment Line H2. "I've read many historical dramas over the last several years and the best ones find a way to make us feel we're getting an intimate look at the people involved, a window into their lives we wouldn't have otherwise. This is one of those scripts.-

        Comment Line I2. "Loved absolutely everything about this script. It's beautifully written-tense, heartbreaking, funny, touching, dramatic, tragic...it's all in there, in perfect proportions. The characters are exquisitely rendered, warts and all.-

        Comment Line J2. ". . . a funny concept that's carried out with a lot of heart, which turns out to be a great combination. . . . the characters and their relationships were unique, human and complicated in all the right ways, not to mention the fact that the humor worked because it came from character (and some very funny ones at that).-

          Comment Line K2. "Great use of sci-fi concepts. Story eases into them so everything's believable. Fresh, creative premise. Unpredictable. The rules are consistent and logical. . . . Confident, clear writing.-

            Jeez, I hope that's mine! But probably not. It mentions "logical."

                    damn! they didn't include me. i live in the US but not any of the 50 states.

                    oh well -- any comments now means you're in the running b/c they've been on their 2nd readings for a while now

                      Gordy Hoffman's gotta be pissed about that guy from Wyoming who submitted to Nicholl and not Bluecat.

                        If DC then I guess they just didn't include the district in the press release; over 20 entries from DC. After Puerto Rico, it doesn't look as if Guam or American Samoa, etc. made the list. We have had entries from various territories over the years but I'm not sure about 2010.

                        We had four entries from Wyoming.

                        Second reads put one in the running to receive a third read but a strong second read is not a guarantee of advancement to the quarterfinals. Over 850 scripts will have received third reads before the first round ends but only 300 or so scripts will advance to the quarterfinals.

                          Comment Line L2. ". . . complex, authentic characters and conflicts. . . . everything feels so real here that we are completely caught up in the story and the plight of the characters. Description is lean yet effective, and the dialogue is fluent.-

                              wow! isn't that about 10% of the population there?

                              what about that space that hovers above the earth?

                                It'd be cool if, as a consolation prize to quarterfinalists, or even semifinalists, who do not make the finals, Nicholl would give them a paragraph of reactions from readers.
                                Last night, Jesus appeared to me in a dream and told me that loving me is the part of His job He hates the most.
