I think best of and favorites are the same thing. I really do. I don't want to fight about it by any means, but I don't see the difference other than semantics.

I was just telling someone else off board, but I know the Tyler story very well... it wasn't trackingb -- scriptshadow was the reason it blew up... he sent it in for notes and scriptshadow loved it and promoted it... industry people came a calling...

It's interesting how you never know where your break will come from. There were 4 other finalists with Mickey Fisher and he's the one that became a mogul. Evan Daugherty went through many false starts.

Dude... I've had hella false starts.

You know what will absolutely fukk with your head?

1) First script you write gets you repped at a big4 agency.

2) Second script you write has a huge producer calling you from on set of his current (100 mil) film to offer you a job.

3) First TV show you ever write sells. And the showrunners you dreamed of attaching fukkin DO!


Now you think "Sheeeeet man, I know what the fukk I'm doing, bruh!" No you fukkin don't! Especially early on, don't fall for your own hype. You will LIKELY crash at some point (i.e. "Crap Out" on something) and have to reevaluate your entire writing prowess.

I picture you sipping a tallboy by the pool after the above 3 somehow. So....anyone find happiness? I think many go in thinking they'll be like Dan Fogelman.....pretty much get hot after the first thing they write and then are pretty much in demand after that. I am guessing that's not the reality for many.

Yup... only, sub tequila. ;-)

I was like "Bruh, here the fukk I am... MADE IT!" LOL

VOICE OC: "Bro, no you have not! Chill bruh! You ain't sh!t yet... WATCH!"

Yeah, almost no one's journey is smooth. Most have plenty of false starts. Especially in this current climate. Gotta keep the ego in check.

Hustle! But keep the ego in check. Because it could all end tomorrow with one bad draft.

So you're saying they're not going to put you on a golden throne and back up the brinks truck to pipe money directly into your newly bought Malibu home? You're going to need a team to keep my ego in check then.

Just a few days ago, another writer got signed from appearing on scriptshadow with a AOW script (he signed with Good Fear) And before that, a writer got a greenlit movie deal for a horror that appeared there (that script didn't even get a great review from scriptshadow).

http://scriptshadow.net/is-cop-cam-t...-scriptshadow/

I think people want others to do the vetting for them and scriptshadow is an easy place to look, rather than requesting material through queries.
