Oh God, Will These Contests Never End?

In case you missed the latest e-mail from TVWriter™:


Aargh! (How many e-mails have you ever gotten from a site that begin like that?)

Yesterday – incredibly – on the last day to submit People’s Pilot and Spec Scriptacular Contest entries, our merchant account’s servers went BLAM. (That’s the technical term, right?)

At any rate, they stopped working about 5 hours before the contests were due to close, and we were inundated with e-mails from last-minute entrants who wanted to know, “What do we do? What do we do?”

Our first thought for an answer was, “Damned if we know,” but we covered up our helplessness and set to work to solve the problem. The upshot is that the servers are back up and entries are being processed again…AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE PROCESSED UNTIL 11:59 PM PACIFIC TIME MONDAY, JUNE 3, 2013.

So what this boils down to is that we’ve added a 48 hour window for entries, giving everyone who has a spec TV episode, pilot, movie, special, etc. script one last chance to enter what is proving to be one of our most successful runnings of these contests in years.

Everything you need to know in order to take advantage of this extension is here:

The People’s Pilot
The Spec Scriptacular

Or just go to TVWriter™ and click on the contest of your choice in the righthand index.

Big thanks to the entrants who informed us of the problem in time for us to solve it before everything went to hell. TVWriter™ visitors are the best!
