    Congrats to Wenonah.

    Not sure of the exact number but there are at least five same year Austin/Nicholl winners:

    Max Adams 1994 (with different scripts)
    Jeff Williams 2009
    Andrew Lanham 2010
    Dion Cook 2011
    Wenonah Wilms 2018

    Couldn't find an all-time list of Austin winners to check for others. These I remembered.

    unrelated, a shout out to Jeff Lowell for his panel with the Wibberleys on breaking in to the business. even though i've heard all the advice many times before, they gave it in such an entertaining way that I enjoyed hearing it one more time

    yeah... got home after midnight last night dragging that heavy thing through the airport. What a crazy fun weekend. I honestly can't believe it's me right now.

    Well, Wenonah... should I tell them or you?

    Tell ya what... I won't spoil the surprise and I know you need some recovery time from the Austin weekend, so perhaps we can treat that question as a cliffhanger, though many likely already know the outcome.

    Haha! I will keep my ears open for either my name or a hissy fit in my immediate area. Looking forward to celebrating and meeting and eating!

    Great news, Wenonah.

    I'll find you somewhere in the corner or just call out your name at the Driskill. If we don't meet up somewhere along the way at Austin, just know that I'll throw a big hissy fit.

Cramming in five or six meetings a day can be a logistical nightmare if you don't have somebody coordinating your itinerary. Plus you have someone who has instant access to what projects are in development and what certain companies are looking for, so you don't waste time writing something nobody will want.

    It's like an expert juggler has stepped in and taken all these air born chainsaws away from me. It's amazing.

    Hope your winning streak continues and I get to cheer and clap when they call you up to accept your bronze typewriter.

    I love you guys and thank you so much for the support.

    Watching Wind river was actually a pretty big turning point for me while writing this script so that's so cool you live out that way.

    Good luck to the rest of the finalists and semifinalists and whoever is going, I hope to meet you.

    Wenonah

    Got the good news that Ticker advanced to the finals in the AMC Drama Teleplay category and also made the finals of the Josephson Entertainment Screenwriting Fellowship.

    And MASSIVE CONGRATS to Wenonah for Horsehead Girls being a finalist as well! I hope you're going to the festival - would really love to meet you and hang out at the fest. I can totally relate to your writing journey. Went down that same long and winding path myself. My writing partner and I live in a tiny town in Wyoming surrounded by the Wind River Reservation.

    I haven't been to the AFF since 2005 (lucky enough to win the feature category that year with The Education of Kady) and I'm SOOOOO looking forward to going back.

    Oh. That's cool.
