Everyone's heard that the first 10 pages can make or break a script; if you've read your fair share, you'll likely have come across some that, for whatever the reason, you've wanted to stop reading after the first page. I dare say that many a Gate-keeper actually has put stuff down after page 1. Stage 32 shouldn't just be about networking but also in helping one another refine our work, so I'd be interested if anyone would like to partake in a Would You Keep on Reading? experiment. The idea is simple: we either swap pages or post them here (with moderators' permission), and then we either say what we liked about it and why we'd keep on reading, or what turned us off and why we stopped/wouldn't be too keen to read more. A logline and genre would accompany each set of pages (5 or 10), so if you don't, say, like comedy too much (like me), you could skip the read rather than hand out harsh notes. It's just an idea. I know that other forums have similar ideas, wherein users can completely rip each others' pages from behind a moniker, but Stage 32 members aren't hidden and this isn't solely about canned feedback on a scene or whatever, it's helping writers understand why their script is being put down, or, why a writer should have every confidence that it's good to market.
