Script-a-thon Mystery Readers

Started editing: On Wednesday

Total time: lots of minutes

Goal: I took Michelle's suggestion and decided to ask some of my target audience to review my screenplay.

Result: I spent Wednesday getting the copies ready and then delivered them. I also created an anonymous online survey for my helpers to complete once they have finished reading. The questions are basic, but I'm curious to see what they think.  There are three girls and two boys, all in high school, and all experienced actors. I should have most of their thoughts before I need to submit for this contest next week. And then there is more time to prepare for the American Zoetrope contest deadline in early September.

I also hope to get the reviewers together sometime, if they are interested, so that we can talk more about what worked for them and what didn't.  The question I'm most curious about is what age group they think would most like the movie.

So thank you, my Mystery Readers. I can't wait to read your comments!


  1. Thanks, Amy. I was very nervous, but I already got my first review and it was great! Now I'm even more excited about this project! :)
