This one came in yesterday's mail. The Nicholl Fellowships are very, very competitive and prestigious. See the little gold statue on the letterhead? That's how prestigious. Unfortunately, I didn't even come close this time to making it as one of the 254 quarterfinalists out of 5,050 entries.
On a related note, however, something good is underway with my film script, but I can't say what just yet. Keep your fingers crossed for me, though. Maybe I can turn all this bad luck around.
