So my prayer was answered. They took a long time to read Act 1. Twelve days, to be exact. Too bad I didn't take advantage of it. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, scroll down and read Time Crunch and Time Crunch - Part Deux)
Today's email from my person relating the message from their person (the one who requested the first act) (I'm wondering if that person only works on weekends):
Subject - Hey, Deep End Babe... (That's from my person and there is no way I can explain that subject, so we'll just have to go with 'inside joke')
>>"I read your first act. It is interesting. Please send a hard copy of your screenplay."
I think this means you'll be writing faster.
I'll be glad to take a cat-o-nine-tails to your ass. And after that I'll do something to get you to write faster. (Pleasure before business, I always say.)
Hondele Pronto Godammit
(OK, just so you know...that last part was in jest...no sexual harrassment lawsuits will be filed) (...and my person is not really Zorro - he just played one on TV (also a joke))
So, like I said...too bad I didn't take full advantage of those twelve days. I still have 9 new scenes to write and 22 scenes to rewrite. Then, of course, there's the read-through for all my fuck-ups and another pass to polish.
I will be calling on a couple of my friends - you know who you are - for quick reads. If you don't want to hear from me, let me know. If you want to hear from me, let me know. I won't be calling on Zorro to take his cat-o-nine-tails to my ass.
I'm in a heap o' trouble here...........HELP!!!!
Oh yeah, I also wish to keep this anti-jinx thing going. (figure I have to mention it to keep it going)
And Happy Labor Day to those of you who are in labor.
