My boss suddenly started to get weird and snoop around at browsing histories in the office, so I haven't been able to post here as often (not that it ever kept me from getting work done before).
Here's what's new:
I met that mentor. He was a nice guy. Finally had lunch with him the other day and he really liked my writing. He had some helpful notes, but said that I was clearly a good writer and should be working in a room somewhere. I agreed. Hopefully he knows some agents that would be willing to sign on young writing talent.
I've written a twenty page outline for my fantasy pilot. It's coming along really well. It really feels with each revision and new idea that I'm not making something up, it's like I'm an archeologist uncovering something that's been buried in the desert. It all exists, I just won't see it all until I've finished digging and brushing things off.
Writress is loving her new job. It sounds like they're cool people, and I'd love to meet them too. Hopefully the show won't get canceled. With her working through writers' rooms being her charming self and me making connections through mentors, it wouldn't be inconceivable that eventually we could get work as a writing team together.
Halloween is this weekend, but some people started having parties last weekend. Our costume idea was a hit, so we're going to use it again. It involved me putting a temporary tattoo of a pentagram made of skulls on my neck. For some reason, a lot of people thought it was real. This is hilarious, because no way in hell could I pull that kind of thing off in real life.
