    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...
    So what happened? Please don't leave us in suspense.

    Script #1: "Your script was among the top 15% of all entries"
    Script #2: "Your script received two positive reads"

    These Nicholl people sure kill you with encouragement, don't they?

    JoJo -- not that it matters, but I had no idea you were a woman.

    Good luck.
    Yup, a woman!

    Thanks! I made it! I'm now a Nicholl (and PAGE!) all-too-rare female quarter finalist! Austin quarter finals, here I come! Chicks rule!

    Wowsa! Yes, I heard they send them out in batches - and it can take several hours.

    Damn, you were close... better luck next year!

    1) Soon (within 60 days). I lived in L.A. for 14 years.
    2) Are you male or female? If female, how would you describe yourself? Come up with just the right description and I might just take you with me. I need a "companion." The isolation of writing (and being single) has driven me to the verge of monkhood.
    3) What sign are you? I have to know that, moving back to L.A., whether you're coming along or not, as I'm sure you understand.
    4) Ask me anything you'd like.
    Buenos noches.
    Decidedly female. If Susan Hayward and Marlo Thomas had a sister, she'd be me. I'm a gourmet cook. When I was 13, I entered a nation-wide essay contest and got published. Have had the writing bug ever since. I live to write. Write to live. Oh, did I mention I'm a 2012 PAGE and Nicholl quarter finalist?

    Scorpio.

    Why'd you leave LA???? And move to FL? I've lived here 22 miserable years and can't wait to get the hell out. Soon as I make a sale, it's California here I come....
