To everyone who has already crossed the finish line by writing the 100th page on their scripts, I offer a hearty congratulations! But if your page count is still a little bit less than 100 pages, you shouldn’t feel left out. There are still many hours left in the contest, plenty of time to add some more pages to your count. But even if you are at page 1, you definitely don’t want to quit today,...

Tips for Script Frenzy Winner verification →
If you are new to Screnzy, you may not realize that verifying yourself as a winner isn’t as simple as just changing your word count to over 100 pages in the little update window.
