Enjoyed yesterday a lot [see previous posts below for the reasons why]. Now it's time to get on with some work. One TV drama screenwriting credit is a start, but more than one is much more impressive. So today I'm interviewing someone for a putative new project. I think the following extract from RonShelton's Bull Durham best sums up my attitude to resting on your laurels:
INT. THE DUGOUT
NUKE PUTS ON HIS WARM UP JACKET and sits down next to Crash,
who's taking off his gear, readying to hit.
I was great, eh?
Your fastball was up and your
curveball was hanging--in the
Show they woulda ripped you.
Can't you let me enjoy the moment?
The moment's over.
