They said it couldn’t be done, but the hard-working TVWriter™ minions have fooled them again, making it possible for me to announce this special announcement about an announcement to, um, come.

Heh, that didn’t quite work, did it? Let me calm my excited self and try again.

How’s this:

Exceeding all expectations, including my own, the TVWriter™ staff and the judges of both the People’s Pilot and the Spec Scriptacular are mere days away from finalizing the first round of judging in both of our writing contests.

Mark your calendars because barring the unexpected, we’ll be announcing the People’s Pilot Semi-Finalists right here on this site next week, either Thursday or Friday, and the Spec Scriptacular Semi-Finalists the week after.

That means that the following week, unless the Spanish Inquisition takes us by surprise (as we’ve seen happen on TV a time or two), we’ll announce People’s Pilot Finalists and, God willin’ and global warmin’ doesn’t do us in, the following week we’ll tell you who the Spec Scriptacular Finalists are, and then…

Then, during the first and second weeks of September, it’ll be Winners time!

That’s the plan right now anyway. And we’re almost 100% sure that at least the first part of it will be.

So do what you’ve got to do, psych up, suck it in, and keep your eyes on the wonderfulness of (and too) for the People’s Pilot Semi-Finalists 7 – or less – days.

Here’s hoping at least one of them will be – you.
