The day after I came home from my Mommy Vacay I received an email congradulating me on earning an Award of Merit for my pilot script, Summons. I was floored. I'm STILL floored. I honestly submitted it for cheaper editing/feedback that was included in the festival/contest. The fesival was called Los Angeles Film Festival of Hollywood. They've been hosting film festivals for 8 years now and my script is listed under the award winners page on their website at: http://hollywoodcff.com/2017_winners_%28Summer%29.html
To see my script and name listed was very surreal. Now, I'm honestly expecting something like a glorified consolation sticker in the mail (they had requested my mailing address to send me my award) but STILL! So, after this, I have done some editing of my own and a screenwriter friend, and feel it is in much better standing now to win or developed further in the contests it's entered into, than it did with the LA Hollywood one.
I am currently working on a feature, unintentionally, and am curious how that will turn out. It's full of time travel, without the science of it (I know, I'm sad about that too ;) ) love, and war, sorta. Bioweapons too! Ooooooooh. Today was a break with the kids and parents. 4th of July fun at the fair. I will enjoy the fireworks from my dining room table, with wine and my iPad as I write in front of the window, looking out at the fireworks going off in my back yard....and front yard. And side yards. Sigh.... I will have to Benadryl all the animals, both two and four legged. Wish this momma luck!
Happy 4th of July/Independence Day to you all!
