If it ain't one thing it's another...




As we all know, I got the "thanks for playing" letter from the Nicholl. And, as we all also know, I've been pretty absent from the internet due to working on this house... included in that neglect was not only my little blog here, but also my participation on Triggerstreet. So, imagine my surprise when my cell rang and it was Ian, from Triggerstreet, calling to tell me that my script is one of the 3 nominees for this month's (September's) Screenplay of the Month. He explained that I had some paper work to do and that I had to keep my mum about it until they had made the announcement about the SOM nominees. The paperwork was a release authorizing Scriptshark to do coverage of my script. (If you get nominated, then your script is submitted [free of charge to the writer] to Scriptshark for their standard coverage.) Evidently SS gives a numerical value to the scripts they read... I wouldn't know, I've never submitted to them... the script with the highest score is the Screenplay of the Month. Triggerstreet has nothing to do with judging the scripts, Scriptshark does it all. In the three years that Triggerstreet has been around Scriptshark has only deemed three scripts worthy of any marketing attempts. I've no idea if my work is ready for that (being that the version on TS is the second draft, see the story about the first draft here). It will be very interesting to see what they've got to say about it...

If you'd care to read the script, Regular Army is available on Triggerstreet. It's easy to find, look for the Screenplay section, click on the link for Screenplay of the Month and presto viola, it'll be there. After the shark bites me in the ass, their coverage will be available there too. Wish me luck, I'm off to find a steel cage...

Oh, Slack, I dunno about "golden"...

Chesher kitty, yep, good things do seem to happen when you're just living life and not trying to force things along.

Thanks for the support!

Keep kicking, little mama, eventually you'll knock somebody in the ass and they'll hand over their wallet. :-)

Sal, thanks for your support.

FD, I'm hoping to "knock their socks off" not "kick their ass"! But, thanks for the support.

I STILL haven't heard anything from the Shark about this, neither has my two fellow nomineess...

*shrug*

...not much I can do about it... must be the universe's way of getting me ready for Hollywood and THEIR timetable. (The way I try to look at it!) I'll let ya'll know just as soon as I can!
