Employed


Know how I thought I had a meeting about comic books? It wasn't about comic books. All that hullabaloo I made about trying to read a bunch of comic books and learn the format and all that - completely irrelevant. This meeting was about movies.

I had a meeting today and it could not have gone any better. And by could not have gone any better, I mean I got a job. I wore a skirt and my best Guess top I got at the outlet in Vegas, and I even put on my $7 open-toed cork shoes that you can't walk very far in on account of the flimsy heel, and I got a water when the assistant offered, and I was myself and honest and we all liked each other very much.

I got my very first job at my very first meeting. Tonight it's pizza and champagne at our house!

  3. Thanks! I'm not quitting yet. I have a few months to decide, so I'll only quit if the workload forces me to. On the off chance this is the only job I ever get, I don't want to lose my day job.

  11. I cannot begin to tell you the true envy I am feeling for you at this moment.

    It is surpassed only by my glee for another novice writer (paid sense only) breaking in and the fact that it proves the law of persistence.

    Congratulations!

    Screenwriters can learn a lot from your blog. Hopefully you'll keep it going so I can keep telling people to read it.

    Onward!
