Particularly the reading portion. Before, most of my writing existed in my head or in the heads of others. It is a completely different experience to have it read out loud, especially from a dialogue perspective.
WILLOWWOOD by Christopher Locke
Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Drama
When two aimless slackers discover their entire reality is a TV show and they are merely background characters in a mediocre family sitcom, they attempt to inject some much needed conflict into the lives of the family in order to save the show (and their reality) from cancellation.

I learned about the festival on line. First, as a new writer, I know how important it is to get my work out there, everywhere I can. I also value the feedback, although I always rely on my own instinct and taste. First and foremost, I write for myself. Especially for Supernatural, that makes sense to me, since I am part of their largest demographic viewership. I also loved the idea of having professional actors table read my work. So cool.
My initial reaction to the feedback was, Wow! He really liked my work. I mean, when the first sentence you read says, “An exceptionally well-written episode of Supernatural…” you know you’re off to a great start! I did incorporate the advice to lower my page count, and it was a good lesson in evaluating what scenes were absolutely crucial to the story. I really did learn something, and isn’t that the point?
