After a good experience hearing pitches on Stage 32 in April, I've started participating in the First Ten Pages evaluation program. Over the last 2 weeks, I've been very pleased and impressed by the quality of screenwriting I've seen! Bravo!! I have to admit that I've been pretty surprised by how well participants are writing. I figured that 50% of participants would probably be pretty green. However, I'm delighted to say that, imho, 80% of the writers I've read have real promise as storytellers and craftspeople, and 20% feel like they're still in the early stages of their craft - not without promise, just earlier on in their personal development. Again, that is merely my personal opinion. I guess my point is that you, S32ers, are among a really good crop. I'm hopeful for all of you, for all of us. Keep up the good work, and I hope you are enjoying the process. Nothing worth having comes easily, right? And trust me, no one is getting rich off this program. It's more of a treasure hunt, and those aren't easy.
