I think this is the 1st forum of any sort I've posted on so forgive me for waffling.
I've been submitting to Newsjack from series 1 and had a reasonable number of credits. Mostly the Miles Jupp and Justin Edwards eras when you could write intros to JackApps etc. and all my credits were one liners back then. Even got an invite to a writers meeting, but got nothing on that episode.
Had a few barren series (The Nish Kumar years) but persevered as there are so few open door opportunities.
Got another couple of one liners during Angela's reign, and even managed to get a sketch on. Coronation Street product placement. Was overjoyed.
Was really happy to get the good email for episode one this series for a Breaking News, and even more so for a sketch on episode 2. I see a lot of folk asking about editing etc. My one liner on episode one (fitbit steps) was pretty much word for word. My sketch tonight was German hangover experiments. Started off as mine for 1st few laughs then was totally re-written by the team. A few of the gags towards the end were based on my original script but worded totally different (funnier). Although it was probably only about 30% my stuff it still felt like my sketch and was great to see what could make it better and hopefully give me ideas to make my next submissions funnier.
Hopefully this is useful info for everyone and good luck for episode 3
