Would love to know which two. One of that group recently reached out about a script of mine, and I'm not sure whether or not to proceed.

Can you let me know which two? Obviously, I prefer some over others. And the others are just backup. I don't think I"ll get my top preferences. I have a guess as to which two.

From the sound of things, I don't think I am as well connected as you. Mine are probably more superficial type connections or people who I haven't talk to in a while (like I knew them back when I wasn't pursuing screenwriting...and didn't foresee that I'd need them as a contact). Hence, looking to these top contests to legitimize me. I really do not know much about Nicholl. And from the looks of their loglines, I have no clue how to write their favored style of scripts. But, I've been pretty happy with the other top contests mentioned in this thread. Usually the judges and organizers are pretty darn cool.
IDK if I'm connected or not. Swear to god. Maybe I am, I honestly don't know where I stand at this point. No bullish!t.

Ahhh... Well in that case, fukk it, go for broke. Skip the ones that ain't right and focus on the legit ones that seem right for you (IMO), while also selling your wares yourself 'feet to ground'.

I truly believe you HAVE to also learn how to be a salesman in this biz AS a writer. I used to hate that part, but now it's my favorite part. Cool... I don't have to write? I can just bulls!t? GREAT! LOL.

IDK... for me, once I did a meeting with a super-star producer, and killed it (Not my words. His. called my rep on my way home with "One of the best meetings I've ever had.") No bullsh!t, this was at SoHo House, Chris Hemsworth was seated at the next table over. I'm like, "Fukk outta here, this is nutz, who the hell do I think I am playing in this arena? But fukk it, I'ma KILL THIS!" After that, I'm not afraid anymore. I don't give a fukk WHO I'm talking to, I'ma kill it! EVERY... TIME!

...All I need is a meeting. I think that's the attitude you gotta walk in with "Let's do grown up business, but fukk it, let's also have fun, otherwise what's the point?"

Me, too.



I know it says 'New User' under my name, but I've actually been here a while. I had a different name for a while, too, but it was (very unfortunately) Cosby related so I needed to change it for obvious reasons...
