Always something to do.

I just spent the second night working on an RFP, which is lingo in the corporate world for a "Request For Proposal," which was essentially a 20 page document of essay questions where I have to show why Elany Arts is a great choice for this company. It was exhausting, but it's due by next Tuesday. Yep, the same day as my screenplay!

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to write one word on that screenplay, but that's ok. I will hopefully be able to write a ton tomorrow and over the weekend and be done before Monday.

We had a BBQ last Sunday welcoming first year UCLA Screenwriters, and reuniting the second and third years too. A couple of my classmates were introducing me to some new screenwriters in the program, and they said, "This is Jason Latshaw, he's the best writer in the program." I was taken aback because they weren't joking! I said something self-depracating and humble, which they denied and said, "No, it's true, you should read the stuff he writes." First of all, I don't believe that because there is not such thing as best when it comes to writing... but it's certainly nice to hear.

It's great to start classes again, and be on campus... I love UCLA.

I heard from a producer today who read and loved The Kingdom of Tovenray, but said it wasn't right for her company. She said she had no doubt it would land in some production company that was a good fit, though. That's nice, huh?

you're a machine.

Well, we're not surprised.

But what do you have to do to become the bestest writer? That would be really cool, all those writers abusing the English language in order to adorn you with an appropriate superlative.

Did Ed hoist his leg up on any tables at the BBQ?

My introductions:
This is Jason Latshaw, he has the largest calves in the world.

This is Jason Latshaw, his other name is Charlie Hustle.
