After seeing an ad for a free screenplay contest from Script Pipeline I wrote a thriller script and entered it. I didn't get to the quarter finals but there were 5500 entries! But yesterday I found out Script Pipeline scored my script and that score was put up on CoverFly. CoverFly is the site I submitted my screenplay to Script Pipeline through.
I was amazed that my first script got a high score and high enough to rank it #3 for Thriller TV 1/2 hour for the week, #3 for Thriller TV 1/2 for the month and #4 Thriller TV 1/2 hour for the YEAR!
That news has solidified my path as a writer as I was having my doubts after I couldn't afford to keep up the big money advertising that was increasing my reads and sales exponentially but without it's crickets. I am on Chapter 8 on my latest science fiction novel and this week will be jumping back in. In just a couple of weeks from now the video of my other script a Comedy TV 1/2 hour will be coming out and I can't wait to see it and share it with everyone.
So just before the precipice seemed too high to climb, great news came in to keep me writing full time. So thanks Script Pipeline and thanks CoverFly, whatever I write next and from this day forward you will get the credit for keeping me motivated to do it.
