Please take the time to write me a review, as this forms part of the competition criteria, thanks.
Thanks for the "good luck" vibes. Did you enter too? I tried to look back but can't see the entries any more. If so, sending "good vibes" back... or use the good vibes for some more good horror writing! :]
Ah, minutes for directions... never even thought of that one! :] Thanks for asking on that one. Oh, and I forgot to mention, more of the backstory on Danica is just a page or two after the 30 page cut for the contest. Sean is on a bit of a "rehab dating".. lost his cousin to a major alcohol/drug binge, couldn't handle working at a rehab center so decided on his on version of helping. Thinks if he gets the girls to 3 weeks sober (the time it took for his cousin to disappear and end up drinking himself to death) he'll honor his cousin's memory and make a difference. Obviously not the best approach but it burdens him with the choices he has to make. Once I finish out a good proofing, I'll get the full script up. Oh, so totally read DEAD HOWLING... yep, you big time scared me! Would a review help? I don't know much about the nuances of the genre since I don't watch horror. (A friend had to convince me to watch Donnie Darko and that it wasn't scarey!) I'm truly that much of a scaredy cat. For scare factor, you went for the jugular with the "meat" choice. And like the mixing of zombie types and pairing up the young girl with the older werewolf. Gives new meaning to mentoring!
Hi, Big thanks for taking the time to read Wee Cubicles and leave notes... hugely appreciated! I'm a bit of a percolator when it comes to notes, so gonna let them sit on the brain to figure a few things out.... definitely awesome details to consider. :] By the way, instead of blocks would you go with mile references? In California I typically do landmarks myself, some people do miles... and in the city areas I break it in blocks if someone asked directions. But I truly don't know what someone in UK/Ireland would say. Any help pointing me in the right direction is appreciated. :] And made a note to read your screenplay Dead Howling Sun/Mon... I'm a huge scaredy cat when it comes to horror, but guess that's a good thing for it to scare me!
