Good-- how good remains to be seen...

Generally I prefer not to talk about stuff that I'm not sure what's going to happen with, even if it looks like it's going to be good. I hate to run my mouth about something that ends up not being what I thought it would be, and then I have to tell everybody, actually, no, I spoke too soon.

But something cool happened and even though I don't know what's going to come of it, it's still an achievement on its own. You may remember that I got the script for Adonis requested for reading by a producer I pitched it to last month. I was told to wait anywhere from two to three months to hear anything back. But I got a response earlier this week. I was told by the people who facilitated the pitch session that the producer requested to be put into email contact with me. I said yes please, and now he has my address and I have his.

This is a very good thing. 😊 There is no way he'd have asked for the way to contact with me if he didn't want anything further from me. I have no idea what it is he wants, of course, and there's definitely better-case scenarios than others. It might be like, "I can't do anything with this script, but I just wanted to say good job." It might be like, "What else have you written?" which I would like, or "I'll give you a thousand bucks for it," which I would like less. I think the best thing I might hear realistically is that he wants to hire me for something. That would be awesome. Of course, the dream scenario is, "I showed the script to my very good friend Chris Evans. He wants to make it, he wants to star in it, and he wants to meet you. Can he take you to dinner this Friday?" But I'm trying to manage my expectations, of course. 😉

I haven't heard from the guy yet. It's only been a few days, but I'm kinda anxious about it. I hope he doesn't, like, forget or something. I'm trying to be patient. After we got the email introducing us to each other, I sent a two line message to him saying, "Hello! Great to hear from you." I don't want to nag or bug, so I think I need to leave it at that. But I really really want to find out what he wants.

Cross your fingers for me, loves.
