Is that grief I'm feeling or just bad heartburn?  
Well, the first screenplay competition announced, and I did not make the quarterfinals of the Page Screenwriting Awards.  I did make the second round, which they told people about last week, which made me foolishly optimistic. 

I still have three more competitions/festivals, but ugh.  I've been trying to remind myself that I didn't make Scriptapalooza last year, which was the first one I heard about, and I advanced in every other competition.  However, I think my scripts last year were a lot stronger, so I'm feeling pretty sure that this year is going to end up a dud.

Sigh.  I'm going to try and finish outlining this new one I've started this weekend, maybe finish the first five pages, and just keep on truckin'.

Awww I'm sorry :(

Try not to psych yourself out - you might still get somewhere with the others! Think happy thoughts! They will make you fly!

(OK, probably not that last part. But they will make you not be sad.)

Yeah, I feel a lot of things around this time of year. I'm either constantly thinking that I'm a total failure, or I'm positive that this is the year I make it.

I did remember that I submitted Fall River to the Page Awards, which made it to the Semifinals at AFF last year, but didn't even make the second round here. So I know that it's not necessarily an indication that my script isn't good, and that it depends on who reads what.

It's still disappointing, though. Sigh.

That's too bad. Glad to hear a new idea is forming; that always helps the sting.
