HAVING A BALL
Short,simple, and sweet, Play It Where It Lays is, as the author promised, a quick read. It's a sudden death playoff round with a surprise at the end that will keep me thinking the next time I hit the greens. The ending confused me a bit, because I thought all the guy had to do was hit the ball 310 yards and that was it. But at the end it sounds like the whole purpose was the make him play through the alligator hole. So I guess he dies by crock, not by gun. Well, he shouldn't have cheated. Well written, fun read, and I thank you for posting. I seriously wish I could write something nit picky about it, but I couldn't find anything really wrong with it. Good job.

My problem with this script was with your choice of development.

A review of Marcus Lotharioby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 04/12/2014Low-concept pieces like this one are quite challenging, since they require great work on character and dialogue as a way to compensate the lack of plot. I am afraid that, so far, this script didn't do a good job in either of those. Marcus is selfish and unlikable, but he lacks a redeeming quality that could compensate such flaws (Llewyn Davis, for example, is infused with humanity... read
