Hunh. I spoke to soon. My Snow Monkeys, who were going down to certain defeat in Stargate Fantasty League play, pulled off an improbable comeback last night, riding the arm of QB Andrew Luck to a rare win. As a result, my Snow Monkeys are no longer alone at the bottom of the standings. They now share that distinction with Robert Cooper’s Landsharks. Now, all they need to do is win 5 of their next 6 games to have a shot at making the playoffs. In my other, original, league – where my Snow Monkeys earned their first fantasy football championship two years ago – the team stands at a respectable 4-3. Maybe all is not lost…
Received some positive feedback from our production partner on the series overview and episode 2 synopsis Paul and I completed over the weekend. Now, it’s off to the network for approval, notes and, of course, congratulations after which we’ll jump on that first draft. Or a rewrite of the material we just sent them. Preferably a first draft.
Meanwhile, received some notes from our other production partner on the series pitch for that SF novel. Tomorrow morning, Paul and I pitch it to a – hopefully – interested party, then we’ll flying cross-country on Wednesday to do it all over again (twice!) on Thursday.
Some news of note:
