I waited a day to submit my screenplay, which was good. It needed just a little bit more last-minute work.
Final run-through with some much-needed final polish? Check.
Registration with WGAw? Check.
Submission to Academy Nicholl Fellowship competition? Check.
Now I have to wait until August to find out if my $80 was well-spent or a shot in the dark that went nowhere. If the money comes up I may submit my work to other competitions as well.
Going to spend the next week or so decompressing from this project. In only 7 1/2 weeks, I took a blank page and turned it into a finished screenplay that I felt confident enough to submit to competitions. If I can repeat this, I’m bound to hit gold soon.
But I’m tired for now. I need a lull between projects or I’ll burn out. I’m not going to write myself to death. Not this lifetime…
