If you are reading this that means I couldn't get the cool graphic of to show up in the email. is sponsoring the One Week Challenge this month.  Click on what should have been a cool image and check them out.      Man, this is really embarrassing.

The October One Week Challenge is coming up!

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.

Flightless aquatic birds, sex-rays and other original scripts - post author Don

Twenty-seven original scripts on the Unproduced Scripts page. We have Sex-Rays which is explanation enough. Also, there are Bad Penquin which is the first feature I’ve seen from Phil in a long time. But is it a feature or twenty-seven 5 page shorts strung together to form a feature? You decide on the Unproduced Scripts page. –
