I am soooo chuffed! Click here for proof lol.
Honestly, I’d forgotten all about my submission – the Kickstarter failed, Mom was in the hospital (she’s okay now), I was finishing Conning Colin and angsting over WIL The Audiobook’s eternal “brief review” and this that the other, so yeah.
Out of 200 screenplays, I made the top 20 as a finalist. FOR MY FIRST SCREENPLAY! So don’t let anyone humba dumba you about “you should throw your first screenplay in the trash humba dumba.”
I DON’T SUCK AT THIS. It’s official! Because /r/screenwriting is occupied by a great mix of everyone from noobs to WGA old pros. And if I got into the top 20 out of 200 subs… I’m chuffeder than chuffed.
Onward and upward! I’m well into my short filmmaking class (I’m AD on the next movie!) and yeah, soon I’ll be ready to pick up a camera and DIY – even sooner than before now that I’ve been validated like this!
