12 stories broken in 17 days. I suspect we could have made even better time and done it in 14 days had one of our writers (“the mediator”) not been away that one week. Still, a mighty impressive feat. Now, all that remains to be done is to write the scripts, build the sets, cast the show, shoot it, edit it, make it t.v. ready, and deliver it to the broadcasters. Piece of cake!
My writing partner, Paul, is doing a pass on my pass of the last pass of the pilot. I’ll start work on episode #2 tomorrow while “the mediator” continues writing episode #3. Once I’m done, I’ll jump on #4 and, whenever the dust clears from his vacation, Paul will tackle #5 and #6. Beyond that…who knows?!
We were halfway through today’s story breaking session when Paul looked over and said: “Hey, is that box for you?”
I followed his gaze to the Amazon.com delivery sitting at the end of the table. Intrigued, I wandered over to check the recipient’s address and – wouldn’t you know it! – it WAS for me! I checked the sender and recognized the name. Shane. Shane… Sounds familiar. Of course! Shane, a.k.a. LineNoise, a blog regular! I used my keys to tear through the tape binding the box, my mind racing through the possible contents: Books! Chocolate! $1.2 million dollars we could put toward set construction!
As it turned out, none of the above…
Having taken pity on me and my dilapidated cutting board featured in that Philly Cheesesteak video I posted a couple of weeks back, Shane elected to forego the books and chocolate and cash in favor of this beautiful new cutting board. Thanks, Shane.
P.S. Akemi tried it out today and loves it. Apparently, it’s the perfect size!
