Writers on the Storm... Stormwatch!

Hey Stormies!

Things are getting pretty busy around here, and that’s the way we like it. It’s always like that as you enter the final weeks of a contest. I hope you’re all shining that script to a blinding brilliance. When ready, dazzle us! And yes, if you need extra time, our final deadline is 7/27. It’s $40 until 7/11, but the price goes up $10 after that.

And now just like last month, it’s my pleasure to present our current quarterfinalists. These are folks who entered the contest via submitting their scripts to Coverage Ink for screenplay coverage, and they represent approximately the top 10% of submissions to CI since the contest began.

Congrats to our Writers on the Storm 2008 quarterfinalists so far:

Heather Upton, Belfast Boys
CA Bennett, Death Valley Dig
Kelly Murry, La Matadora
AC Yacobian, Rasta Pasta
Aaron Marshall, The Last Adventure of Martin Finch
Alan Sproles & Lizanne Southgate, Eden Lost
Rich Sheehy, Sliding Into Home
Paul Sargia, The Man Who Could Stop Time
Steven Zawacki, Arcadia
Suzanne Darling, Brush With Fame
Dennis Bailey, Pound For Pound
Chris Jopling, Blacklights

As always, you can enter either through Coverage, Ink or directly to the contest at We’ve also enabled entry through, so if you already have your information uploaded there, you can enter WOTS zippy quick. Some of you are even -- gasp! -- still sending in hard copies via U.S. Mail! Amazing how few, though. The age of the PDF is upon us for sure!

And now, I’ve got scripts to read! Lots of ‘em. Strangely, a lot of you out there want to win 10 grand. Nowadays, that’s a good three fill-ups! (not really laughing.)

Love y’all!
