This competition has made me write a spy and a suspense script, two genres I didn't really think I'd find myself writing, so I'm happy about that. I put my best foot forward and now it's time to let the cards fall where they may. I definitely have the butterflies, though. I woke up today and my first thought was "Today's the day...."


My thought of the morning, exactly. Today it is.

I can say I was confident Spinkler and Tim would make it to the next round. And you guys did! Congrats! Clap I  was also confident I wouldn't make it to the top 5 and I didn't. But a Honorable Mention in a genre I know nothing about was pretty cool too. So, yay, me! Wink

I was happy with my round 2 entry.  More so than my Round 1.  I am confident enough in my writing that I know when I have something that works, and when I have something that reads phoned in.  

My personal belief for most contests, however, is that you could write "The Godfather" and it's still a bit of a crap shoot.

Adite, thank you for your confidence and congratulations on the HM for a tough draw.
