An Update (Long coming)
Here's what I'm up to:
I had a meeting with a potential manager last Thursday. It was set up by my agent. The meeting went very well, I loved her outlook, and she is now potential no more... she is my manager. It's pretty cool because I remember just a year ago sitting in a 434 with screenwriter Michael Colleary and he was talking about "the business" and he said it was essential to form a team around you of people who tried to sell your work. I remember at the time thinking it would be so difficult to get an agent, and a manager. It seemed so far off.
And now, just a year later, I have an awesome agent and a really great manager, and they're getting ready to start selling my work!
So the plan right now: I have a notes meeting on Thursday with my manager. I'll address those in another draft, and then my agent will take that script out to sell. Cross your fingers! I'm now writing another script that will go out in early March.
All great news. It's such a strange time in life. I really have literally no idea what life will look like in one year. That is such a strange place to be in, honestly.

this really is so amazing. I think it is easy for us to realize how very difficult it can be to line up that "team" around you--I mean, because it is so easy for us to read about, it could seem like it's sort of just as easy for it to come about in your life.
Sure, there is God opening doors, but not JUST that. There is also a lot of hard work that goes on--and will continue to--so for that, congrats!!!

Jessica had a similar blog awhile back about not being sure of what the future holds and how strange that is, but I feel certain the two of you will continue to do great things and be successful.
