Hang on though, because it's not all about Collider!
Nearly ready to promote Sequestration Manor and give it its very own page. The camp horror has camped and ramped up.
The second major rewrite is now complete. Of course it needs a lot more work - the characters need to be followed throughout (and there are quite a few of them), the villains need to made sharper and the sweet little geriatrics perhaps vilified a little more, but the story is done - and I like it.
So, can six old people really stand up to gangsters, the DSS and the banking world? That would be telling, but if they are prepared to flagrantly ignore their dead benefactor's explicit commands, they have a fighting chance .. although, sadly, that is not without consequences either.
Semi-finalist eh? That's pretty exciting, and totally unexpected, now I know what the story should be... arrgghhh (still concerned that my newest version is so much better)... but what am I going to do? Enjoy the moment - which is so much more than I anticipated. I reached the 1/4 finals of Shoreline and Cine Story before fizzling out, and I still have Screenwriting Goldmine coming up in October, with Elliot Grove as one of the judges.
Next... waiting for Raindance to send me the critique of the new Collider, to resubmit to some agencies.
Ah, time for a glass of red and a pat on the back for getting this far.
