For those of you unfamiliar with the One Week Challenge, it’s an excercise to see how well you work under pressure. Imagine of a director came up to you and asked you to write a short script based upon an idea that he/she has and you have one week to write it. Could you do it? Of course you can.
The rules for the challenge are:
- It is free!
- You have one week to write a thirteen (13) page (or less) script
- The script MUST be in a generally accepted screenplay format.
- Do not put your name on the script. For the first week or so, the scripts will not have the writers’ name on it so no one can pick favorites.
- Please do put © Copyright 2008 on your script!
- Submission due: October 17th at 11:59 pm EDT
- Remember this is a Challenge, not a contest – there are no prizes.
Be sure and visit SimplyScripts at 11:59 pm on October 10th to find out what the Theme and Genre will be.

Submissions posted to the site – Starting October 20 without names.
October 31st, visit SimplyScripts to read and hear the selected script.
One script will be selected by some as yet to be determined criteria (either I pick, I get a screenwriter to pick or some kind of voting) and it will be recorded (assuming the writer gives permission to have his work recorded and posted to the site for a month) in MP3 format by the fine folks at iScript.com.
