Here We Go Again.

New Year. 2014. Whoop-edee-doo!

No, truly I’m excited for the year, just like I was excited for last year. 2013 had a lot going on. Here’s a sample of my year:

* Retained agent (yay! I’m still repped!)

* Went on about 12 pitch meetings for a project, which ultimately didn’t sell

* Went on about  10 general meetings with people/companies which read our scripts and liked them.

* Had one staffing meeting, which, did not result in staffing, but hey. Progress!

* Boss has two tv show projects going, one of which has been announced, another which hasn’t. So that’s two shots at potential future employment!

* Began developing a web series with my sister and writing partner Julie for an established brand. Watch this space.

* Completed writing a multi-platform series (for money!) with Bernie Su though it is clinically dead right now.

* Completed two new spec pilots, started a third.

So, it’s been a hell of a year! A lot accomplished, but yet, it feels like we are back to running the race — staffing looms, so we have the new pilot to finish, and of course other projects we are dying to write.¬† And here I am, after trying to get the old blog restarted in September/October trying to figure out if I can try, try again.

What choice do I have? Shut it down? Perish the thought…

How’s your 2014 outlook?

    Sounds like a terrific year to me. I think running the race is all anyone can do. Sometimes you will win.

    My goal this year is simple: just to complete a long-in-the-making spec and get it to my contacts. And then start the next one.

    I found 5 bucks in a pair of shorts in the dryer.

    That was pretty much the high point of 2013.

    Doofus. Your high point was hanging out with ME in Austin.
