Re: How important are internships for writers?

I'm gonna go out on a limb since the OP identified as a current student - and surmise the other 3 days are filled with classes. But that's just me reading between the lines. So I get the 1 day...

Re: Got a 3 rating from blklst...

True fact - there are scripts hosted on the blacklist that have received ratings of both 3... and 10...

Re: Black List Reader Gave Me A 5 - Now What?

Just click on a few of the TOP RATED scripts... look at the spectrum of their numerical evals. You will see scripts that have both 10s and 3s...
