No Good Deed....

I'm "segment producing" for a friend of mine for this little show that will air this fall. Nothing exciting (including my paycheck), but it has got me on the run. It started out as a 2-day favor that has morphed into me negotiating rights deals, booking crews and trying to get network exex to close talent deals. Ugh. This. Is. Why. I. Write. I miss my little dog. I miss my quiet little armchair. I miss my afternoons curled up at Starbucks, tapping away at my little scribblings.

Anyway, back to the grind. I'll keep you posted. Novel is/was going well. Trying to get some pages together for a reading in the Bay Area at the end of the year. The novel-writing group is getting some national coverage which is very gratifying. If only my book were finished, perhaps it would help me move ahead.... :-)

Keep on trucking, people.

Wow! This sounds exciting! I just came across your blog and I'm hoping to hear what it's like to be a working screenwriter/"segment producer". My interest is strong because I'm a stand-up comedienne out of NYC. Although, I'm a writer first and then everything else second.

I want to hear/read more!!! (sigh) I'll guess I'll have to resort to the archives.

If you have time, free free to stop by my corner of the blogosphere, here:

Quest For Comedic Stardom:

My goal is to ALSO write a book, on what goes on "behind-the-scenes" of a stand-up comedy career.
