Nothing to do but wait...

I've got a number of really exciting things going on that I've done everything I can do to finish them and am now just waiting on other people.

The iPhone App
After a flurry of activity, this bad boy is designed, researched, and handed over to the developers. Now we just wait, and check on progress. I'm very excited about this application, because it's turning out to be better than I even thought it would be. I literally cannot wait until it is finally completed and ready to sell.

My short film
After hours and hours of time spend in pre-production, production, and then the post production editing, this baby has now been turned over to the audio and video experts who will put the last layers of polish on it. Once again, I'll be so excited to finally have the finished cut soon.

Feedback on my scripts
I've sent scripts out to a very large number of people lately, all of whom have requested them. Now I wait. I know enough about this town and this business to not necessarily expect anything on all this. But it sure would be nice. But now I just wait.

Elany Arts
Elany Arts, the graphics design company that is otherwise known as my financial security, is caught up in a large RFP (request for proposal!) process for our biggest client. It's unnerving to have to compete to keep a client you've kept happy for seven years Though technically you are competing every day, to actually be in a process against a ton of other agencies where there is a very real chance of not being selected is worrisome. We've worked very hard on our response, but now can do nothing but wait to hear whether we've been chosen to make it to the second round. Unfortunately, this personal little ulcer will be continuing into early 2009, when the final selections are finally made.

I read your script comment as this" "I've sent scripts out to very large people lately." That would be a strange comment :).

It's kind of crazy the season of uncertainty yet great possibility you are in right now! I really believe that all these things will pan out -

• a screenplay will sell
• your short film will be amazing
• the iphone app will be huge
• you will continue business with your largest client
• you will win the lottery
• you will swim with a great white shark
• you will invent a new game system
• you will learn the secret of time travel

Well, maybe the first four at least!

Just one screenplay? Jonathan, your eyes are too small.

Well, maybe Jase could "jump the shark", too!

Seriously, Jase, I am praying for God's best for you. Blessings on your head!
