Breaking News

Well what do you know. I entered Divine Rites (now called THY WILL BE DONE) in the American Zoetrope Screenwriting Contest eight million years ago and forgot about it. Just received an email - I didn't win - but I did make it into the Quarter Finals. Which is nice.

Blink and you'll miss it - there's about 250 of us in that category!

Hey well done you! So what there's 249 others in the category, you're probably the best one! I didn't actually mean you told me to pester them, I took your advice to tell them about my blog, but in a pestering way. You see? Any who, seems to be working as hit counter is going up... slowly!

Nice one, Todd! Any word on the Good Dog? So are you a winner, then? or a finalist?

Katie - well it's the top 10% if there's 2,500 entrants, so I'm not complaining!Glad to hear people are visiting your blog...Maybe you should follow my example and leave the evils of AOL behind??

Welcome, to proper blog, Lucy. You find you will get more comment now as we don't have to log in to other system now! Comisers for not winning, but hey! No problem.
I just heard that my latest movie screen play has been rejected and I trying to restay my good moods! It is best way, don't you agree?

Lucy said...

It is the best way my swedish strange one - you gotta be in it to win it, so any type of placement is an advance on not entering at all...And as for rejection, 'tis part of the writer's life. You're not a *real* writer until you're rejected. Multiple times into the hundreds. That's my story and I@m sticking to it!

Hey, well done! Funny comp, announcing everything at once - must have been nerve-racking
(no, nothing to do with fish fingers!)

Lucy said...

Hi Hope. To be honest, I completely forgot about it, think I entered last JUNE!!! But yeah, 'tis weird announcing the winner and everybody all together. I'll be giving Bluecat another go this year - think I'll enter my entire (finished) back catalogue of screenplays. Anybody else having a go at this one?

Optimistic_Reader said...

Hey, well done! Top 10% is a good result.

I don't think I'll enter BlueCat this year either. Working on too many short things and trying to decide where to go with re-writing other stuff so I'm not likely to be ready by March 2nd. But maybe will go for Zoetrope this year.

Lucy said...

Thanks bird! No feedback with Zoetrope, but cheaper than Bluecat by ten dollars I think this year. Think it opens in June.

Phillip Barron said...

Well done, Lucy. Great news.

Lucy said...

Thanks Phil, I hear congrats are in order for you too! Keep us posted on your gumball success.
