Stare Into Space

In which I receive good news

It seems that I am to be a finalist in this years Red Planet Prize (it’s quite prestigious, you know).

A month or two back, I submitted a ten-page extract and outline for a one-hour TV drama and a subsequent series.  Today I received an email stating:

Congratulations Gerry Hayes!
Your submission “Over Sophie” has been chosen as one of the finalists for this year’s Red Planet Prize. Can you now email your completed script – as soon as possible – to this address, along with your synopsis and details. The script will then be considered by our panel of judges and the winner will be announced in the New Year.
All the best and well done.

Hurrah for me.  Hurrah, hurrah and thrice hurrah.  I’m a finalist, selected from a thousand others.  Even if I don’t win, that’s pretty cool.  Still though, fingers crossed for the win.

I mostly sit around all day and drink tea. Occasionally, I write stuff and send it to strangers so they can humiliate me and deride my efforts. Other than the self-harm to dull the shame of failure, it's not a bad life. Like I say, there's tea.
