Go Big or Go Bust: Day 88 (on our win/win situation with the pilot script)

If you've been following me for any time at all, you're probably aware that I've got a little issue with an addiction to work.  But hey, if you have to go crazy with a compulsion, let's agree that 'work' might just be one of the better choices.  At least for me.  (Looking at you, 70% dark chocolate.) 

But today, feeling successful, feeling acknowledged and absolutely buoyed by the loving reaction over on facebook, I'm a changed person.  I'm relaxed.  I love the pilot script Mark and Bill and I pulled together in the past two weeks.  And even those two hard-boiled characters seem to feel really good about it. 

And most exciting of all is that even if we aren't picked to be finalists for Sundance's Episodic Story Lab, we've already grabbed the brass ring.  If things go as planned, by early Fall, whether we're invited to the Lab or not, we'll have a half-hour comedy series to pitch to television or to shoot as six seasons of a comedy web series. 

So today I celebrated. I threw caution to the wind and took the whole day off.
