Déjà vu all over again
The 2011 Nicholl Quarter-Finalists were announced this morning. Didn't make the cut, but I received the same P.S. as last year: two positive reads. My scores just aren't high enough to qualify for a third read. The premise might not be strong enough, or maybe the writing is lacking. It's all so subjective.
I was really hoping for at least a Top 10-15% finish. Would've been a meaningful tidbit to add in my query letters. C'est la vie.
Almost finished with my potential 2012 entry: a character-driven supernatural thriller. I feel really good about its chances in contests and querying.
Congrats to the Quarter-Finalists!
