In this case it got me to the second round.
I've submitted my Better Call Saul spec that I wrote in the UCLA Extension classes earlier this year to a number of competitions and workshops, and today I got some great feedback from one of them.
The script made it to the second round of the TV writing competition at the Austin Film Festival, but didn't advance beyond that. I'd been notified of that some time ago, but I just received the feedback from both first and second round judges and I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with it.
Not too shabby, eh?
This spec is still out to a couple other contests. I hope they're liking it as much as these guys did.
I also submitted a short story this week to an anthology from Mystery Writers of America. They will announce which stories were accepted early to mid 2018.
And that's it for 2017 submissions. I'm working on a master list of markets for next year and my plan is to submit as much as possible.
Happy writing, everyone!
