This year is almost two-thirds over, and I still have yet to make my mark. I’ve had my fair share of rejections this year, but I remain strong. I’ve entered a total of seven…. You heard me, 7 screenplay competitions this year, and nothing. I advanced to the quarterfinals with Scriptapalooza, but in all honesty, that’s no big deal.
That thing I mentioned in a previous post I was working on, it fell through as well. I made a bold move and contacted this Director, and he responded. We exchanged a few emails, and I was advised to check out his films before we move any further. After it was all said and done, he was not interested, and I respect him for even giving me the time of day…. but I must move on, cannot let that get me down, I’m in it to win it, and I won’t stop until I have accomplished that. All I need is one foot in the door, and the special treats I have in store….
Any who, I’ve decided to spend a little money and hire a professional to help me polish my screenplay, but this is in the near future, the lack of funds is somewhat holding me back. I will not move further with my plans until I receive a Recommend and or Consider, which is good in the screenwriting world. I honestly doubt I will enter any more competitions, but I shall see.
Next year, 2014 IS my year.
