It was my first screenplay, and first time writing a fairy tale, so I"m pretty excited to write a second one. Congrats to the folks going through, and commiserations to those who didn't make it this time--may you be even more motivated for next time. 

Congrats on that, but remember the second round will be a whole new genre and prompt.  I enjoyed Baggajazz!

Took the next few days off of work in case I made it to the next round to give myself time to properly write.

Didn't Place. No Honorable Mention. Think I came in dead last in my heat. But still had a great time. The judges may not have liked my story, but I'm very happy with it.

Good luck to everyone who made it through. 

May the judges be with you.


Life is short. Enjoy every second. BonPsi

Don't do that to yourself, you wrote a great script and you're happy with it, don't let it knock your confidence, there's an awful lot of room between 6th place and 25th and absolutely no reason to think you came last!

I bombed out of the short story last week and it's a horrible feeling, but ultimately it's one competition. Means nothing and it's no reflection on your abilities as a writer. Learn what you can from it and smash the next one Smile

Came first in my heat (woohoo!). However, historically speaking, that means I will crash and burn in round 2 (less woohoo).

yes, that was poorly described on my part ha, I meant to say I'm looking forward to writing another screenplay (not another fairy tale, heaven help me). Congrats on advancing!

Honourable Mention. 

I'm pretty gobsmacked. I thought it was an incoherent, soggy, disjointed, derivative mess that fell out of my garbled brain box in the wee hours of the whisky addled morning. 

I still do in a way!
