First and foremost, HUGE thanks to everyone. Your kindness, sportsmanship, and advice has been invaluable in making this first round a success. Win or lose, every one of our kontestants will walk away with amazing advice and great connections. Thank you.
Also, BIG thanks to our judges. The first round is the hardest and each of you did amazing...even if you gave me a heart attack in the process.
To those who won't advance to the next round: You are all amazing. You have so much talent and drive and I know you'll make it far in this industry. Don't be discouraged. Take all the feedback you've received and make the most of it. Not only that, pay it forward. We are all brothers and sisters in this struggle. Brotherly and sisterly love is the only way each of us can achieve our goals.
This writing community is SO awesome. Thank you for being so AMAZING.
