so i’ve been keeping a secret. i got the call from nickelodeon that i was a semifinalist back on august 12th! the 30 rock spec i wrote got me in. it was very difficult to write because of the pressure i put on myself. i knew that the spec had to be good enough to get me through to the next round.
i was completely surprised because i wasn’t expecting a possible call until the end of the month like last year when i got the call on sept. 3rd. this year, they were 3 weeks ahead of schedule. i was told i’d have a phone interview in a week. here we go again!
i had my monthly writers group meeting that night but didn’t share the news. last year i told everyone each step of the way. this year, i didn’t want to jinx it. i didn’t tell anyone. not family, not friends, nobody. i decided i’d tell everyone what happened after i found out whether i made it in or not.
