With all the work and effort we put in as writers, I thought I might share my feelings on when one receives feedback:
What WE see as precious, sensitive, tortured writer souls:
Reader Comment: While we appreciate your effort for our contest we fell that it would be best that you stick to your day job (if you are lucky to have one, great, if not sucks for you!) as to not flood our dear and precious motion pictures industry with nonsense and deterioration of the integrity of our medium. This all of course based on your very obvious lack of skill. This read really was quite a waste of our time, (I’d much rather have my cat scratch me in the eyeballs and subsequently poor lemon juice in my eyes then to have to read this again). And I do believe that some years have been taken off of my life from reading it.
As a result we have BANNED you from any additional future entries.
The feedback ACTUALLY given:
Reader Comment: This was very well structured and has potential to be a very original and evocative script. Let’s focus on the villain’s backstory a bit more, and try to connect what turned him into the deranged person that he is (however quite entertaining I must say!) today. Each character in the story had a very unique voice and strong sense of character. A very enjoyable read. I would definitely look forward to the improvements in the future.
No? Maybe just me?
