Pitching scares the shit outta me. But when it’s over, I’m elated!
Next step is a live fifteen minute interview. Forget about sleep, debi!
This is why I’m so excited — Roadmap Writers means business!
Both BLIND PURSUIT (feature thriller) and THOSE BENEATH (TV pilot) are semi-finalists at TRMS Hollywood!
Fingers crossed for more!
My son said this about Enduro Trail Riding in the East Texas Piney Woods:
“Sometimes I get into flow, but sometimes the trees get too tight or the terrain is unpredictable, and if I keep riding at my normal pace I fuck up a lot because it gets trickier and ups the difficulty. But I can get impatient when my pace drops off, so I try to push it, but then I’m thinking, ‘Oh great, I’m gonna hit this tree and die.'” – Russell Yazbeck
What an all encompassing statement of life. It applies to writing and to anything where we dream our dreams and push to be better and the best we can be.
My new futuristic drama TV pilot THOSE BENEATH “Immaculate Conception” has its first contest placement as a quarter-finalist in the 2017 BlueCat Screenplay Competition. Fingers crossed for advancement!
What an honor. See the list here.
And a great honor to receive Best Feature Screenplay at the 2016 California Women’s Film Festival.
None of this would have happened without Max Adams and the Academy of Film Writing. Max rocks as a teacher and a mentor!
