My entry for the Sci-Fi Short Story Competition is now complete. Wish me luck.
It is available here: http://www.circalit.com/michaelvank/projects/project_1330810783/
Please take the time to write me a review, as this forms part of the competition criteria, thanks.
I would think that Marionsmith was Marinaberg due to the fact they both like !! but who knows, this site has had far too many redundant profiles and people voting for themselves in competitions.
As far as the script goes, as a play it would be very tough to work out. As a script for film, it needs serious work. But it isn't impossible. Anyone can accomplish anything they want if they set their mind to it.
What I don't get is how some people can and do throw hissy fits. After all, if you aren't here to learn from a review. Both good or bad, then what are you here for. No one on a public site like this will stroke your ego. I find that just doesn't help anyone.
Having said all that, which is probably a little more than I should. I have to add I've seen it all before, in fact most of us here have. And no doubts we'll see it again. There is a huge difference between writers who are going to make it and those who aren't and the biggest of them all is who can take criticism.
Just my thoughts, sorry, been a long tough week :(
I guess you are right there, the same goes for if you are active, because when you review a script or short is advertised on the main projects page. It really depends on who you are and what you can do for other people I guess. One of the main issues with the site is no matter how many reviews you do, you're not guaranteed to get any in return. This site runs on a 'you review mine, I'll review yours' but that doesn't always work. I've been on other sites that use that system. In the end you sort of find friends who will do the right thing by you. The etiquette here is mixed. Some people can't take any sort of constructive criticism and others (like me) thrive on it. A balancing act. Just be honest. At least within the boundaries of what you know for sure. :)
Enjoy the site, and thanks for the review...
Back at you soon.
