My walk down NYCM memory lane. Varying results abound! NYCM was a post-pandemic discovery for me, and I'm glad, because I'm hooked -- and think I've become a better writer because of the forums and simply just from the act of writing. Any excuse to write is a great one, so cheers to all of you here with already some robust resumes!

9/13: If I may, I do have personal favorites of what I submitted. The most fun I ever had writing something was certainly Francie and Wendy, which squeaked me into the second round of the Screenwriting 2021 Challenge. Another favorite is A NIGHT AT THE KASINO. And Being Bobby the Bobcat, even though that gave me a whopping zero points, is something I personally really enjoyed writing. Lastly, shoutout to UP IN SMOKE for my best finish, and perhaps really was my best writing so far. I borrowed so much from my actual job that I feel sheepish about that story, hehe Shocked

R1: Punch In. Punch Out. (9th) [Drama]

Maybe so, but I remember YOU from way back when, Maximum Dynamite!  Star

I love writing them almost as much as I love reading them.
A lesson in embracing and owning your crap stories too. 
It should be a NYCM institution.
