Sunny and cool
No hot water AGAIN this morning. It’s been erratic for over two months, and I’m sick of it.
Found some big errors in “Ris an Abrar” – fixed them, and got it out.
Went over “Blueberrying” again and got it out.
The Mothership was filming just around the corner from me today, so I stopped by after I mailed the stories and said hi to a few people.
Spent the rest of the day researching for the pitch. Read three books, cover to cover. One I read in the library. I took three more home and read two of them. I’m going to read the last one today, and then feel I have enough information/ideas to write the pitch.
I should be able to get it out by the end of the day today or first thing tomorrow.
Watched the television series tonight and was very pleased with it. My helicopter sequence rocked! Even though it was less than 30 seconds. That’s the way it goes. On Conviction, we spent something like seven or eight hours on a banquet scene and about 15 seconds of it ended up onscreen. That’s the way it goes. But this show is tightly written – not an extraneous word. One really has to listen, because everything a character says is relevant. I love that.
I’m going to get some writing done this morning, then read the fourth book, then write that pitch and get it out. I really want that job. I just hope I’m the right one for it!
PS Blogger refuses to publish AGAIN – it was having trouble yesterday – and they “fixed” exactly what last week? Hopefully this will get up sooner rather than late
