    One early on that seemed like a close fit - more than " 'a great script with neat characters and cool dialogue,' obviously, that must be mine!"

    And it sold last Wednesday, so I have nothing to lose -- and I am disqualified from going any further, even if I make the quarters, so I have nothing to lose at this point. I'm just curious if a script good enough to sell is good enough to make the quarters at the Nicholl...
    I seem to remember Greg saying the every year several of the best, highest placing scripts ultimately are withdrawn because they've sold/were optioned.

    Several! No doubt the reality is that it was none of the comments..

    XL: Thanks for the observation. I'd never thought of that (all of this is still sinking in). If I do make the quarters (and I have no reason to think I will), I sure would like to see if indeed I could advance further... and even under the best case scenario, I probably won't see my check for 30-60 days -- and can "stall" a little if I choose to.
    Very interesting...
    Thanks again.

    I actually thought that was mine 'cause it's about a sentient salad that goes on a rampage...until I realized they were talking about "beAts" and not "beEts".

    I got halfway through your post and I was thinking - dude, you just sold something! You don't qualify.

    But then the point XL makes is relevant. Get that money in the bank before pulling the script. You are not DQ'd until your account is full of cash. (IMO!)

    I might be remembering wrong (and I'm sure someone -- i.e. Greg -- will correct me if so) but I don't believe you're actually disqualified until the paperwork is done and/or the (above 5k) cheque is in hand, which, I'm sure you know, can take anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months from the time you get the good news.

    Not to be a Debbie Downer, but a lot can happen in that time. Might be worth checking with the Nicholl folks before pulling the plug.
