What's new, Bluecat?

I'm not going to write about the weather.  I don't even want to think about the weather.  Or what it did to my morning commute to the railstation.  Instead, I will sit here, waiting for the next train, and drip all over everything while I write something inspiring.

If there is any doubt in your mind that you can accomplish what you set your mind to, dispel that doubt right now.  I'm going to use me as the example today so, naturally, your milage may vary, BUT (and notice it's a 'big' but) there's no reason you can't still get there.

One year ago, literally, I had never written a screenplay.  Yesterday morning I found out that I made the top 10% of the BlueCat competition for shorts with "Princess Rose."  That's the top 160 scripts out of 1602 entries.  BlueCat.  The competition that's in everybody's top 10 and most people's top 5.

I haven't won.  But seriously, do I need to (this year)?  Isn't beating 1442 other entries validation enough that even the impossible Hollywood dreams are possible?

Everybody comes from somewhere.


  1. Good for you, Jon! I'm just seeing this (Feb. 11) as I'm rather behind in my reading. But I'm glad I did read it, and I'm proud of you!

    1. Thank you. I really appreciated your read too, your insight definitely improved the final product.
