I never entered writing competitions. Art of any kind is a subjective, each journey as individual as the person experiencing it. How can one ever truly deem a book the "best?" Or a novel, TV show, or script for that matter?
Having said that, I wrote a TV pilot this past year that I thought was special. (Don't everyone?) I have kept it under wraps as my producer has been actively shopping another series and a feature screenplay, both co-written with a partner. As we were all busy making those happen, not to mention my rounding third base with another novel, I put this TV pilot in several competitions.
The first results have come back--Writer's Digest Magazine has awarded Trixie, my pilot script for a riveting series of historical fiction, an award in the Script category in the 90th Annual Writing Competition for 2021.
It felt good. This is an admission for someone passionately against awards in the art world. I'm allowing myself a moment to let it wash over me--acceptance? Validation? Whatever it is. It feels a little like sunlight.
