I did it! I actually made a video pitch and submitted it to the Austin Television Festival. At this point, since I am a total beginner, I am just hoping for Quarter Finalist. They take 25 entries from three different sources, that’s a total of 75 entries, from the hundreds each source will receive. This is the festival I plan to attend, whether I win or not, in June. I missed it and was super bummed in 2017 and had a newborn last year. This year it’s happening. It’s a well known and reputed festival full of television professionals. I hope to learn stuff and meet a lot of new people while I’m there. Though I’m not looking to start a serious career with three young children, I don’t want to just settle with the “Finalist” titles “Summons” has acquired. I want to see if it can go further. As I do, I am working on finishing my feature. I honestly have no idea what others will think about the story, but I know it’s giving me experience and I can twerk it with editing later. This is a story that I’ve been wanting to write as a novel for ten plus years now. It feels good to finally get it down and watch the story unfold, apart from my mind.
That’s all for today. I want to get some writing in before nap is over today.
Hope everyone is having a great day! School started for us here, so I’m enjoying some real quiet time. :)
