Oh Snap! I’m a DOUBLE Quarterfinalist in the 2022 Screencraft TV Pilot Competition

I’m thrilled to announce that I got word last night that BOTH Curio and Riftmaker advanced in the competition. (You can find out more about them on my TV projects page) I admit I was a little worried about submitting twice to the same competition because I wondered if they would just pick one evenContinue reading “Oh Snap!

Curio is a Quarterfinalist!

This is the first time this script has competed, and I’m thrilled to announce it has advanced to the quarterfinals of the WeScreenplay TV competition! This means all four of the scripts I’ve written so far have received at least a quarterfinals placement or better. [Cue happy dance] I’ll find out about the semifinals inContinue reading “Curio is a Quarterfinalist!”

Riftmaker is a Quarterfinalist!

Woot! I haven’t had any good news to share like this since March, so feeling grateful, happy, and relieved to get this recognition for Riftmaker. This is my second pilot and the first time it’s competed. For this competition, ScreenCraft received around 2000 submissions, so the quarterfinalists are the top 500-ish.

One Year Down: What I’ve Accomplished So Far as an Aspiring Screenwriter

I don’t think anyone would be surprised to hear that spring 2020 was not a great time for me because it wasn’t a great time for pretty much anyone. I’d started my fourth novel in January, but by March I had completely lost interest in it. I wasn’t writing anything, just editing and continuing withContinue reading “One Year Down: What I’ve Accomplished So Far as an Aspiring Screenwriter”

The primary focus is a gender-swapped Robin Hood retelling TV show set in a near-future dystopia where magic exists. As the production coordinator, I have my hands on many different aspects of theContinue reading “Creating the Pitch Deck for HOOD”

Help us Bring the Characters of HOOD to Life!

Being in this crazy screenwriting game is all about connections, and I was fortunate to find an amazing multimedia project through people I’ve met through social media. I am already learning so much about the non-writing side of creating a show! The entire HOOD project includes a book, podcasts, and eventually a TV show. RightContinue reading “Help us Bring the Characters of HOOD to Life!”

LitCon 2021 – Adapting Your Novel for TV and Film Panel Discussion

During the first weekend of March, I was the host for two panels about screenwriting for LitCon 2021. The first was a Q&A session, and for the afternoon we focused specifically on the process of adapting a novel or short story for the screen. A big thank you to Joe Compton, L. Marie Wood, andContinue reading “LitCon 2021 – Adapting Your Novel for TV and Film Panel Discussion”

With all the other stuff going on and interviews to post, I totally forgot to post about my progress in the pilot competition. On Dec 9, I found out that I was one of just 50 finalists overall in the competition, which started with about 4800 entries. Woohoo!!! So now…

Originally posted on Phoebe Darqueling:
There are a few online degrees and intensive workshops for aspiring screenwriters out there. But, frankly, I’ve been a self-directed and motivated student of storytelling already for six years. It just doesn’t seem like it is worth the cost wade through the basics again. However, there is certainly more to…
