Best. Vacation. Ever.
My vacation is hours from ending, but I have actually accomplished what I set out to do.
Firstly, I finished rewrites on the rom-com and sent it to an agent, as noted below.
Secondly, I banged out the last 86 pages of the book adaptation I started some time ago.
Finally, and most recently, I chopped a fairly ruthless 15 pages out of that script to get it under the 120-page marker.
Now it goes out to my trusted readers (and some new readers, hurray!). If they have major quarrels with it, there may be rewrites. Otherwise, or whenever the rewrites are done, I will have three quite solid feature scripts to toss at the semi-curious or, failing that, the merely unwary, once I move to LA.
Or whenever I might happen to meet them.
I can now focus my energies on getting my stupid house into shape to rent and trying to land a job in the movie business, however menial.
If only I had more vacation ….
