Valentines Day Short Scene Competition

Ah - the sweet smell of roses, the twelve-thousand calories of weird chocolates, the anxious checking of the mailbox - it's that time of year, Wavers - Valentines Day approaches. To some, a vile and loathsome holiday, for others, it is a romantic and cherished annual occurrence. And surely, for the majority of us, it brings back memories of red construction paper cards dripping of glue and glitter.

But here at the Rouge Wave - it's an excuse for another holiday short scene competition. Now, the last competition here at the Rouge Wave turned into quite a dust-up as there was a kerfuffle regarding voting procedures. This stemmed from my failure to be crystal clear about the voting guidelines and standards. This is not a popularity contest, this is a review of each writer's level of execution and ability to entertain us within the guidelines. So please, please, do not jeopardize the continuation of competitions here on the RW by asking all your friends and family to pour onto the blog and vote for you because they love you. We know they love you. We love you too. But this, ironically, isn't about love - it's about talent. So:

The Rules:

Write a 1 to 2 page scene thematically and dramatically connected to Valentines Day. Genre is your choice but the following three words/phrases must appear in the scene:

Writer's Strike
1-800 (as in the toll free prefix)

Writers are limited to two submissions each.

Submit to the Wave-inatrixin pdf or fd format.

The Deadline:

Monday, February 11th by 5pm Pacific Time.

The Prizes:

$25 gift certificate to AMC theaters
$25 gift certificate from 1-800-Flowers

ShowHype: hype it up!

Do you want "Writer's Strike" or "Writers' Strike"? Or does it matter?
