This is very exciting! LA, outstanding job. There seems to be a pattern here, all three are romantic comedy. Were all the entries comedy? I'm familiar with Jane Sevier's writing, so the competition had to be fierce.

Great going to the finalists!

Yay, Jane!

Way to go, Victoria Koch, for Holiday Heaven! I'm familiar with your writing so I agree that the competition had to be fierce. Congratulations and best of luck to the finalists! You all deserve plenty of applause!

Terrific. I can't wait to hear who the winner is. They were all great script entries this year.

Jane Sevier said...

Thank you, LA. What a fabulous job you've done on the contest. I'm thrilled that "The Blue Jay's Egg" is a semifinalist!

Thanks for that good word, Donnell. I'm also curious about the genre breakdown for the competition. Perhaps it's that romance writer's preference for happy endings that made us turn our hands to romantic comedy. Of course, I adore movies in general, but romcoms are my favorites.

Thank you, Lexi!

Good Luck Vicky, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for HOLIDAY HEAVEN.

Hi Guys,
There were more romantic comedies than any other sub genre!

The script had to have romantic elements...since Scriptscene is part of RWA (Romance Writers of America) and I think Rom Coms are so much fun to watch. Thus the number of entries.

Rom Coms are my favs and my husband's as well.

Way to go ladies! Nail biting time coming up ;)

Victoria Koch's writing is simply the best! I've enjoyed all of her novels, and now this a movie script. I'm of course partial because I am one of her fellow bloggers on www.wordywenches.blogspot.com. Way to go Vic!
