It’s been an interesting week.
On Tuesday I very nervously interviewed Matt Devlin, play-by-play man for the Toronto Raptors about a football story for the Argonauts. Devlin’s done NFL, Big 10 Football, Major League Baseball, and of course NBA. An incredible resume and there I was, making a feeble journalistic attempt to interview him. Talking to him wasn’t really the intimidating part – transcribing his quotes correctly was my main concern.
I spent a few hours afterwards writing the article, and then submitted it the next morning to the Argos Admirals blog. I was informed the next day that argonauts.ca was picking up the story, and this morning I just found out that cfl.ca is running it! I am now published on two major Canadian Football news sites! Fuck yeah!

I also found out this week that my screenplay, That Moment In Between, made the quarterfinals in Scriptapaluza, a Hollywood scriptwriting competition. I was selected out of 4,700 other writers.
On the flip side, I am still awaiting word on the Producer gig. My second interview went well, but I’ve yet to see how well. I’m anxious. I’m nervous. It’s a bit difficult to make plans for the time being – which is par for the course for me. The big difference seems to be how heavily it’s weighing on me. I really want this gig and I can’t seem to bring myself to make contingency plans.
I’ve spent my time instead finishing the editing for McKenzie’s short film and tweaking the one-sheet for RedShirts. I’ve set today aside to do a bit of writing.
We’ll see how the next few days goes.
