@HollyMaxSpencer Appologies, I'm getting swamped with work and the time flew by.

@The_Scrapegoat_bleats I'll take that into consideration, but the entire idea was to create, part of a script in a very short amount of time.

@Allthenamesaretaken That was initially the Idea.

I'll take this, but only about one scene or less per page will fit.

I would love to take this. Wait, how about we'll take any short stories instead?

I agree with Scapegoat.
Only short Childrens' books will be good enough for this kind of debate.

I think you should do just one scene per debate. Aside from that it's a cool idea.

Would love to take this, BUT:
a) writing a proper script requires months. I haveprofessional books on the topic, and as a comicbook author, I know how long this process is.
So, the time limit will not be sufficient.

b) There is not nearly enough space to write an entire script into the rounds. One minute of film is roughly covered on one page.

Hence: Cancel this, please, and take it to the forums, where even more members could participate, each linking to a blog where the script can be properly developed.
