Okay, so my judge was quick. She also said when she agreed to judge she didn’t think it would be that hard. Wrong! Heh, I always lure them in with that false sense of ease. The fact of the matter is, it’s damn hard to cull lines. Especially when you start adding lines and the story begins to take shape.
Ok, I digress. Here is my question. Well, hold on, first let me say, originally I was gonna have my judge cull nineteen lines. But, well, I’m into torture and know y’all are too, so I thought, screw nineteen, let’s go with nine this time around. Ten next week, then we’ll get down to the weekly five. So, I have the lines here that are being culled this week, and I will not post them but will post the 65 that made it to the second round on Monday. But my question is, is anyone interested in me doing a critique of the culled lines? Not a Simon Colwell critique but an honest why this didn’t work for me, and maybe if you changed this word or dropped that one you’d have a great first line kind of crit?
Think about it, and thoughts are welcome.
