My Script Made the Finals!

Finally, some good news.

Steve Klausner and I wrote a horror screenplay three years ago that we both liked. Steve's movie "Headspace" had just premiered and I was honored he wanted to collaborate on my ideas. The script went well but there was something missing.Last year, we figured out what it was and did an extensive rewrite.

Today we got this message:

Dear Paranoia Screenplay Finalists,

We at Paranoia would like to personally congratulate you on being chosen as a finalist in our film festival. We will be announcing the winner of our Screenplay Category at our award ceremony on Sunday March 15th, which begins at 8:30. We will also be posting it on our website the following day. If you can't be there physically we will notify you by email and inform you how to go about receiving your prize.

Best of luck,

So I'm not as funny as I'd like to be but, apparantly, I'm scarier than most.

You are scary funny, as the kids say. Or, they used to say in 1997.

Congrats. You're hard work is paying off!
