Hi there! I don’t know about you, but I’m having an awesome day.
My dystonia is just awesome, thank you.
And I’m nearly finished with my crowdsourcing project. I’m so thrilled, because then I can finally just get it
the fuck out there done.
In fact, I was so fucking determined to finish the damn thing today that when my husband came in with a rejection letter from the Austin Film Festival screenwriting contest, I just glanced at the letter and set it aside. And he kept looking at me, and I’m like, “What?” And he’s like, “It’s been a long time since one of those.” And I’m like, “Yeah.” I told him I was fine, and I just kept going. Then he left. And I drank my espresso. What am I going to do? Cry about it? I’ve been rejected before. Plenty of times.
Anyway, I still made the quarterfinals of Scriptapalooza. That counts for something.
And I’m still thinking about going to the Austin Film Festival. Because I think it would be an awesome opportunity.
I will quote the especially
funky weird interesting part:
Amazon.com does not talk much about what it does in operating the world’s largest publicly available computing cloud. But if you read between the lines you can get a sense of where it is going – global expansion, a new kind of Web browser, and spy work for the United States government.
Wow! I can’t wait to get my refund check of … maybe $1? Ha ha ha …
Apple kills Star Trek. Ha! As if …
And here’s a great quote for every writer who blogs:
“The less a writer discusses his work—and himself—the better. The master chef slaughters no chickens in the dining room; the doctor writes prescriptions in Latin; the magician hides his hinges, mirrors, and trapdoors with the utmost care.”
Jack Vance born August 28, 1916
And don’t forget, Doctor Who will be on this Saturday!
And here’s a blog for writers!
