Well, that was nice. Now - onwards!

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:


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.

Just watched the episode.

Thought the dialogue and structre were really good. It definitely works as a piece of drama. Well done!

Dialogues and the structure of your dame is really looking gorgeous and it same as like as my daily drama.Thanks for creating such important cultural dram in behalf of daily routine.

wow. greatest episode of the show I've seen yet!! you have serious writing talent. I can't believe a person of your skillset is content with a tv credit to this drama!

and in my opinion, get started on that feature RIGHT AWAY. that will be your way into the big-time, I think.
