Here's a great post from John August about your First Script. I'd like to add that you should never pitch something to someone as "this is my first script!" Most people in Hollywood already assume that everything is crap. So when you say that, you give them even more reason to prejudge it. Maybe it isn't crap...who knows. But it's probably not going to be your best. And that's okay. Just keep writing.
Also check out Jane Espenson's Oct 17th post about why you might not have been a finalist for a contest, workshop or fellowship. Definitely good advice to follow for next year.
For networkers (which should be all of you): the next TV Writers & Friends monthly networking event is this Wednesday, 10/22 at 8 pm at the Falcon on Sunset. No Cat & Fiddle this time - and I don't want to hear everybody complaining about how it's too fancy or something, because it was my idea to have it there. :) Come, have a drink, meet me. I'll try to make that saucy face a lot so you can recognize me from my picture.
