    My best to the three top writers! It would be great to see a synopses of their works. After taking a creative writing course this year, I completed and boldly submitted my first-ever effort and was thrilled to be a semi-finalist. Thanks, Final Draft, for the encouragement.

    Congratulations to the top three! I’d be interested in seeing a synopsis of their winning screenplays. I began creative writing this year and boldly entered this contest. I was thrilled and honored to become a semi-finalist with my first attempt. It’s encouraged me to keep writing.

    Congratualtions to the winners! I’d love to read the top three scripts to see what the writer’s did right (and I did wrong)? BTW – I asked a very intuitive healer/friend to read the list of Semi Finalists. She said that “Cowboys and Hindus” would win back in September. Wow, what a right-on prediction she made from more than 200 Semi Finalists!
