Hoowee! Received an email from my agent last night informing me that he was putting me up for a new genre show and requested a writing sample for a “sci-fi show that tends towards horror”. The series is an adaptation of novel – which I happened to have read, so I knew the perfect sample script to put forward: Stargate: SG-1’s “Revisions”. The only problem – I no longer had a copy of the script. Fortunately, I had access to a dropbox database of all of my old Stargate scripts. UNFORTUNATELY, that old dropbox account got deleted due to age and inactivity. So what to do? Search my old hard drives of course. The result? Nada. And so, left with no other recourse, I resorted to desperate measures – reverse-engineering my script from episode transcripts. Which took me almost all of today, from an 8:00 a.m. start to a 7:00 p.m. script delivery.
Now watch me not even get an offer.
I did find time for a few breaks in between all of the rewriting and reformatting – two Suji walks, a workout, and lunch with my old friend Simon who was in town, visiting from Vancouver…
Pictured here with the Pike’s Place Espresso Chocolate Bar he gifted me.
Great to catch up with Simon who is one of the biggest foodies I know.
Another round of meals-with-friends tomorrow when my buddies Yael and Tanavi roll into town. Dr. Blackjack has done the honors, lining up rare culinary double-feature lunch AND dinner.
I leave you with today’s Yes/No…
