There are moments these days when I glance at the Typepad bookmark button and sigh. I wanna click on it. I wanna post something. But I am on the run. Not a whole lotta time to think, much less put together a coherent post.
Just wanted to touch base with all of my OLU friends, though, and let you know that all is well. Busy, but well.
We're making some big announcements at SagePresence right now, which is exceedingly cool. And I need to pay attention to them and make them work because in both cases I kinda got us into these fine messes in the first place.
INCARNATION is going equally well. It's hard to talk about progress at present because so much is still in the air and loose lips could quickly sink this particular ship. I can say what I've already told the Facebook crowd, there is a faint glow of green on the horizon. The script is getting a great reception, with one production company exec stating, "The writing is *excellent*. Great characters, great story…reminiscent of an Arriaga movie." And we're in the process of attaching cast. I hesitate to write the words that I am about to write because I am superstitious about such things…but here goes: it's starting to feel kinda real.
But keep your fingers crossed anyway.
Trying to keep up with my writing schedule for MANIACAL ENGINEERING, but it's been tough. I am a little behind, but still up for completing the first draft sometime in January. It's been amazing. Never before have I gotten so much buzz and interest on a title. Me…the guy who sucks at titles! (Case in point: MICHAELS LETTERS=I loved, everyone hated and it became RUNAWAY; THE ANGEL ON THE HORSE=I loved, everyone hated and it became INCARNATION) One screenwriter friend of mine, who's just finishing up an assignment at Disney, wrote to me, "You know how I know that MANIACAL ENGINEERING is a *great* title? Because I'm mad I didn't think of it first!" We'll see if I can follow through and live up to the excitement with…you know…the actual script.
All that said, bear with me over the next few days. I will return.
