Default Re: Latest Writer's Store/Insider 15 page Contest

Bmcthomas, this may be the last thing you want to hear but I would take being runner-up as a mark that your writing is up to par -- actually more that up to par, good even, considering the number of entries they usually get. It may simply be that the finalists had a tone that fit better with the Screenwriter selecting the final scripts.

Honestly, I would have been very happy as a runner-up it means I'm getting better, I'm improving, my work is at a level respectable to a professional. At risk of sounding like another self loathing writer, it's set backs of not even placing that make me question if I even progressed my craft. So take this how you will, but this is a good thing because it means when you submit again whether to contest or for representation you know you are that much closer to professional level writing.
