I failed and why that is good

My script "The Fall", submitted to the Kairos Prize for spiritually uplifting screenwriting, came back to me today. It didn't make it in. I'm over the moon, because I wouldn't have known what to do with it if I won.

This is an important part of my learning curve, and the best part of it is - even though I didn't get in the finals of the competition, I got some detailed feedback from someone who is a) in the industry (or at the very least speaks the language and can tell me why the script didn't make it), and b) has the spiritual background to appreciate what the script was aiming for.

An entry fee well spent. Next step, a workshop with writer Paul Margolis in March. I can't wait!
