Dramaz Beach

Recently, I just submitted a comedy series of mine, Dramaz Beach, for consideration by the Debbie Lee over at the ABC and Brett Sleigh over at SBS. I have been rejected. Twice.

The feedback I got from Debbie was good though - she said I had good comedic timing and an ear for dialogue, so that's some consolation. Unfortunately, they had a very similar project already in development, so that really put the kaibosh on this one.

Brett didn't get around to reading it, but he said my pitch was very similar to the British show "Echo Beach/ Moving Wall Paper".

Both of them were very polite and clearly very well versed in their work and the developmental goings-on in the television realm.

And I figure rejection's just part of the game. And I'm only 21. Still young enough and dumb enough to cope with rejection fairly adequately.

So, I'm continuing with my feature scripts and novel, and putting my TV stuff on the back burner for a while, which was my original plan anyway.

Until later,

An interesting notion

Writers should be read, but neither seen nor heard.

Daphne du Maurier (1907 - 1989)

"A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages." Tennesee Williams.

"My mom asked me if the prayer for the wild at heart was for me or if that was something that I thought had pained me throughout my life. But it's for everybody I know. I don't think I know one person who I think can be completely who they are every second of the day, who feels completely free. So it's kind of a prayer for everybody to find their happiness, to break out. And Tennessee Williams also writes that a bird or an animal feels comfortable in a cage it grew up in -- it represents security as well as confinement to be in that cage. So anything that makes us comfortable, those things are cages around us." Angelina Jolie

I'm setting myself a challenge. I'm making a public declaration of what I want. Even if I'm the only person who ever reads this.

In 2009

3 scripts for the Nichols in May. I will settle for nothing short of perfection. Need to be posted earlier.

Get representation by the end of 2009 by UTA

Get representation by Brillstein-Grey by end of 2009.

Sell something by the end of 2010.
Success has many parents; failure is an orphan.
