Get to know the winning writer:

What is your screenplay about?

An awkward moment in a longterm relationship.

What genres does your screenplay under?

Comedy for Adults.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It is something I personally have never seen, but would love to 🙂

How would you describe this script in two words?

Cringe worthy.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

Wizard of Oz

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Thought of the idea last year. Wrote the script in about an hour.

How many stories have you written?

Too many to count.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

Trying my hand at sketch comedy and I keep writing short films instead. I have always been annoyed when when I hear a man on a TV show apologize for a sexual indiscretion saying, “it was an accident” but the woman never asks him this particular question.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Making that first keystroke.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Acting, directing, friends and family.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

There is no such thing as good writing, just good rewriting. Blurt, then correct.
