Our first round of logline critique begins today! Here's the disclaimer:
Some of the entries ARE NOT LOGLINES. Some are PITCHES, and at least two are apparently OPENING SCENES.
I am taking partial blame for this, because I set the word count at 150. Honestly, I didn't expect it to be a problem! I can certainly understand a bit of confusion between "pitch" and "logline". But the opening lines of a story are another thing altogether.
I have marked the story openings "This is not a logline." Please do not critique these. Authors: I have shared links with 2 posts on how to craft a logline. PLEASE READ THESE.
I apologize to those of you who entered valid loglines and were not chosen by the bot. Such is the nature of a lottery, yes? Please enter next time.
From now on, the word count will be set at 75, and I will include more alternates. Anything that's not a logline in rounds 2 and 3 will be disqualified and replaced with an alternate. Fair enough?
Anyway, no worries. It's okay to work out the kinks as we go!
Have fun with the critiquing!
