I am busy solid busy. Very very busy.
I’ve been putting long hours in on Damien and my non-work time has been devoted to doing nothing, and seeing no one. My headspace is in a good place and I’m currently sitting at the counter of Tori’s Bakery on Queen Street East, waiting for a friend. I’m giving her my copy of The Blacklist season I, so she can help me with an outline, when I set out to write a spec for the show.
The CFC’s been on my mind again. I’ll be applying to their Prime Time Television Program for the fourth time in May. To this end, I’ll be submitting an updated version of Machiavelli & Tymes, as well as the previously mentioned spec for The Blacklist. In addition, it looks like Glen Mazzara (show runner on Walking Dead) and Ross Fineman, an LA based agent and producer will both be writing Letters of Recommendation for me. Both developed Damien and brought the series to Fox, so that’s how I came into contact with ’em.

Alright. So that was interesting. It turns out I stumbled into a vegan meet up group – which was coincidental because I happen to be vegan (for two more weeks). I pulled out my 5D and taught Leora how to use a camera. Talked shop with Elizabeth and drank wine with all of ’em as a group.
Serendipity. Always served best when you’re not actually looking for it.
