The current state of things

I don't know how interested any of you are in my 'journey' -- I know this blog has mostly become news on the tv season, but for anyone still curious, here's how things stand...

Got my second sample in to ABC on Friday. When they called on Wednesday he asked me what I had and I mentioned my other two show specs and the pilot. So of course, what did he want to see? The pilot, which I have been rewriting, but was not ready to drop in the mail on Friday. So, I spent about 36 hours working the pilot into something readable. Somehow I managed it -- I think I missed a couple of meals and I know I missed some sleep, but I did it. Now I hope it is remotely interesting to them. I'm also hoping that by giving them a pilot rather than another show spec I get some extra consideration for 'degree of difficulty'.

So what now? Finish rewriting my Medium spec. Start contemplating my next show spec which I won't write until next year. Come up with new tv show ideas to pitch, in the event I make it to the interview round.

Good luck to everyone else who made it this far. Now we wait. Again.

All the best with ABC. I'm debating writing a couple spec TV scripts after a few years of only thinking about features. With the recent release of some very good network shows I am beginning to look at TV in a new light.

Keep us posted on your progress, I'm cheering for you.

Good luck Teela. I just discovered your blog a couple weeks ago, and I'm finding the things you post very interesting.

Thanks for sharing.

I had the same dilemma and went the other way. Didn't think the pilot was up to snuff, so I sent another spec. Whatever, I hate this whole process. Blahrgh.

Whatever happens with the fellowship, your writing is obviously moving forward. That's the path to always walk. Congrats and good luck!
