Welp, it’s mid-September and I haven’t posted in a while. That’s my bad. But, things have happened since my last post. For one, I completed improv class, which was exciting. Still not sure what I got out of it, but I’m glad I did it. In terms of the fellowship I talked about a few posts back, unfortunately I wasn’t selected. But, it’s still cool to have been a finalist and have folks respond to my work that way.
Now, for September updates: I have a new pilot fully outlined. It’s similar to another pilot of mine, as folks talk a lot about building a brand. Broadly, my brand is female-led one hour drama, but when attempting to narrow it further I’ve focused on grounded sci-fi as that’s what people seem to think is my strong suit, and it’s a genre I’ve always enjoyed.
Additionally, I found out that the spec I wrote for the network tv fellowships is a second rounder at Austin. That’s pretty exciting as I’m not even a year into trying to make a go at this as a career and I’m seeing positive results. To that end, I’m probably going to go to Austin next month and see what that’s about. I love Austin as a city, so I’m excited to go back. And everyone who has been to Austin raves about it, so it seems like it’s worth the trip.
My plan for the rest of this month is to finish revising one of my pilots, then take a stab at drafting the new pilot. Also on tap is working on an outline for a feature. I’ve been talking about writing a feature for a while, but something about those extra 30-40 pages terrifies me. Oh well, time to put on my big girl panties and do the thing. What do I have to lose, right?
