Over the next month, we scribosphere bloggers will naturally be whizzing our Red Planet Prize scripts to each other, for a little Power Of Three action. Critiques, questions, opinions, denial, editing, tears, paper, ink and blood will fly like crazy geese.
Here's a question which might be worth a mini-debate: should we send our PO3-helpers those first 10 pages, or the whole script (provided it exists)? Even though the first 10 pages seems sensible, as this is what the first-round readers will see, isn't there the chance that a PO3 person might spot something later in the full script which should be dragged/flagged/foreshadowed up-front, making for a better 10 pages? I welcome opinions. Forge them with your nimble fingertips.
PS As an anonymous poster recently pointed out, somewhere or other, the Red Planet comp seems to have changed its stance on multiple entries. They're now permissible. I say that our one entry should be sufficiently brilliant, in order to win.
