(49) PITCHED 'N' DITCHED
Didn't get in.
Hope at least one us did!
Congratulations to the ten who did.
"Dear Pitch in Time Entrant,
On behalf of the Screenwriters Festival 2008 I would like to thank you for your contribution to the Pitch in Time competition...etc..etc... fifteen-hundred entries, from which only ten finalists could be selected..."
They go on to say they hope it won't "dampen your enthusiasm for screenwriting".
Crush your ambitions...? Make you want to give up?
Bit of a disappointment, though!
Mind you, I can concentrate on my rewriting so I can make the most of the next opportunity I find. And punt out a spec again to make my own opportunities.
The stories were great, the loglines were great; they just didn't pick 'em this time.
Maybe someone will next time. Maybe that call is coming soon.
And... We've got this to go for now!

Keep going fellow scriptwriters!
Just gotta work on, try again!
