Just wondering, anyone still in this community? I've got a short (4 page) screenplay I want people to read -- well, two fairly different versions of the same screenplay -- so if anyone's still out there and interested/willing to offer advice, let me know.

Prompt 2
The Intruder


A character is being intruded upon. The details are up in the air, so knock yourselves out.

I figured I'd give it a shot. Fairly simple fare, so feel free to interpret it however you like. Have fun!

Prompt #1
Record-breaker


A world record has been broken by a central character. Consider form, point of view, genre, setting, and general approach. Standard rules apply for response length and posting.

Have at it kids, and best of luck.

Please note the deadline change--11 July 2005.

Welcome to
Too Many Cooks

a writing community for writers of any form to find topic ideas and constructive criticism.



How Things Work

1. Once every week (specific day TBA), a designated member will post a writing prompt applicable to most or all writing forms (prose, poetry, script, etc.). The subject line will utilize the following format with the correct due date and appropriate abbreviation:
<*b>PROMPT 6/26: DESCRIPTION OF A NONPRESENT CHARACTER<*/b>

2. Responses to the prompt will be "due" at midnight on the day preceding the prompt-posting day. Since this community is designed to encourage stylistic development and integrity, these "due" dates will be suggested but not rigid. The subject line of responses should read as follows with the correct prompt abbreviation and form:
<*b>DESCRIPTION OF A NONPRESENT CHARACTER: FICTION<*/b>

3. Responses should be between two and four pages for prose, three and five pages for script, and as necessary for poetry (other form lengths will be considered as they are posted). Being of such a length, they should be placed behind LJ cuts and with ratings:
<*lj-cut text=*"Waiting for Godot, PG-13">

4. Constructive criticism is necessary in this community, and feedback with suggestions for improvement is expected. Please comment often and refrain from personal conflicts or complaints.


*Note: For all HTML above, remember to remove the asterisks [*] for the code's proper behavior.


Any questions or concerns may be addressed to divakitty or "eljaydivakitty" (AIM).
