Small Victories

December 29, 2011
The second day of my blog, and I already have a success to report! Okay, it’s not a very big one, but I made it to the quarter-finals of a contest I entered. Since it was my first TV spec, and the first screenplay I actually finished (if there is such a thing), I’m taking it as a good sign that I am on the right track. It’s also valuable feedback because it comes from an impartial source. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the announcement of semi-finals in the end of January.
This morning, my writing time was devoted to outlining and revising the story for the first draft of another TV spec I am writing. It was hard to get started but very productive once I got over that hurdle. Isn’t that always the way? Like I tell my kids, the only thing we can control is how much effort we put in.
Since the kids are on vacation, we’ll be braving the cold to visit some friends in Brooklyn today. It’s difficult to tear myself away from the computer, but we all need some life in our lives. Happy writing!
