Hello wonderful blog readers!
I received an email from the Nicholl Fellowship today.
Every year, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences picks five writers and pay them, based on the strength of the script they submitted, to produce another feature length screenplay.
I didn’t make the cut for the Fellowship, but my script scored in the top ten percent!
7,251 entrants, and I’m in the top 10%? Pretty awesome, but of course, disappointing not to advance.
Ah well, I’m hoping I can find someone out there as excited about the story of the first genetically engineered dragon as I am! Perhaps this will help me along. It will make a killer film.
Congratulations to everyone that is advancing. I’m sure there are some amazing scripts, and how they’ll ever pick just five is completely beyond me!
In other news, I received my second ever royalty cheque! Seems that A Quick Bite of Flesh is still selling. Want some zombie flash fiction? Then this book is forrr yoooouuuu!
I am waiting on an awesome agent for a new book I’d like to see in print. Paranormal romance/urban fantasy here I come! I’m well into the sequel already, and hitting short stories out of the park on a daily basis.
I’ll keep at it until- BWA HA HA YOU CAN’T STOP ME
Thanks for stopping by.
Oh what’s that? This is my 100th post?
Oh man, if I’ve been this into my small successes so far, when I get my first novel picked up I’m going to be happier than a kitten with a feather. More excited than a porcupine with a banana. You do know porcupines love bananas, right?
Anyway, thank you for stopping in and staying with me on this long, long journey to authordom.
