Deadlines

I am trying to be better about deadlines. Tomorrow night, the pre-final draft of my play is due. I think I may also submit a couple of more pieces just to throw it in the mix. Writing original comedy is a scary new thing for me. Earlier in the summer I did an episode of “Bob’s Burgers” for a fellowship application which fell through. But I am going to try at it again. Hopefully all the various writing classes and stage productions will aid my technique and strengthen my style/voice.

Once I have a collection of work under my belt, I have to find someone to support me – a manage or agent, I dunno. I wonder if I should also try ghost writing? Though, I’ve heard horror stories about that.

Coffee won’t let me sleep for another 2 hours. I suppose the best I can do now is get to it. Time to polish.

The Wall of Shame

Well Blog Land, I am going to enter this writing competition for television, and I have on idea what’s going to happen, and it’s frightening, and I wish the aliens could send me a computable signal that could make this script any good, and I wish my dialogue could improve, and I hate this feeling of not knowing if I’m any good. Ugh, SUPER nervous. I keep thinking these studio writers receive all these specs and make two piles. A top ten pile and a bottom ten pile. The top ten get discussed in the holiest of spaces — the writers room…meanwhile the bottom ten get put in some sh*t pile where pages of the worst writing any of them have ever seen get selected and framed on the wall for all to see. The wall of shame.

It’s going to be a long night.
