It’s July 2, 2014. Have you entered the Spec Scriptacular yet?

Lissen up, people! Lissen up! The 2014 SPEC SCRIPTACULAR has been open for over 24 hours. You’re losing valuable entering time.

Well, okay, not that much time. The SS doesn’t close until December 1st, giving you 5 months to whip your spec episode, special, or screenplay (we’re calling them “TV Movies,” but…you know) into shape and submit it. What we’re really concerned about is that you’ll miss TVWriter™’s fabulous Early Bird Entry Special, which knocks the cost down from $50 to $35 per entry until September 1.

And that, friends and neighbors, is one helluva bargain, especially in view of the fact that you don’t even have to cross your fingers, say your prayers, and submit your script at the same time you pay. You still have until the December 1 closing date to perfect your pilot…cuz we at TVWriter™ are pretty darn good at keeping records, you know?

(Uh-oh. Is that going to come back and bite us in the butt? Sure hope not.)

Bottom line: Your friendly neighborhood Team TVWriter™ cordially invite you to pay now, at the special rate, and enter later, in the name of sound fiscal policy, something most writers usually have no part of.


Pays yer money HERE.

See how much we love you, baby?

EDITOR’S NOTE: Yeppers, we know that we used very similar wording in announcing the opening of this year’s PEOPLE’S Pilot…but, hey, as they don’t say in TV – but should – why mess with the truth? (Or to paraphrase something they used to say in Chicago about voting: “Enter early and enter often.”)

We’re outta here.
