It's not a Competition

When Jeanne, Kim, Mina, Zac and I first started ScriptChat, the motto was "It's a community, not a competition." And from that day, it's always been that way. We cheer for each other, support people in a slump, and generally try to be there for people across the globe.

And when Vivi, Gray, Zac and I went on to develop TVWriterChat, we used what we learned from starting ScriptChat.

It really isn't a competition. The only person you're competing with is yourself. How can you make yourself better? What can you do to improve your odds of succeeding? Being a part of a community really helps you beat the odds.

I'm noticing the same camaraderie among authors. Everyone supports one another. Check out this wonderful blog post by Beth Revis.
