And another weekend is upon us...which, frankly, won't feel all that different from Monday and Tuesday or Wednesday and Thursday.  I'll be continuing my rewrite of the Project F pilot (Tease and Act 1 complete), reviewing my Powder Mage pitch, working on six new pitches for two possible homes, and finally getting around to reading…

April 2, 2021: My Plate is Full!

Today's pitch went swimmingly.  The executive to whom we pitched was engaged, asked all the right questions and we, I believe, offered all the right answers.  I followed up the meeting by forwarding him a written overview of our pitch and...that was that.  Now we play the waiting game. And I redirect focus to the…

April 1, 2021: Today blog entry – 100% practical joke free! I think.

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1377750192116674563 Lol.  Good one.  They really had me going until I looked at the price chart and saw that they expected struggling small business owners to cough up about 3k for a sticker.

March 27, 2021: Rice Crackers, Trending Topics, and Stargate!

Whenever we visit our local Japanese corner shop, Akemi spends half the time agonizing over whether or not she should pick up some rice crackers.  On the surprisingly rare occasions she actual does pick them up, she'll eat one, then ask me to hide the rest so that she isn't tempted to immediately eat them…
