Mark's Myspace Page

Yes, I did it. I created a myspace page at Mark's Myspace Screenwriting Page. If you're a screenwriter, filmmaker, or even just like movies check it out and link up with me. I think it's a fairly new way to make contacts and see what other artistic people are doing out there.

Entered Three Screenwriting Contests

I entered Script Pimp's Screenwriting Contest, Writers on the Storm, and Scriptapoolza. Good way to get a barometer where you're at and where you need to be, plus good exposure. The bonus is it feels like you're doing something which might be the most important part of all.
