Don't turn a good thing with your worries

Tomorrow I have my Skype meeting with the film executive who gave me this report of my Adonis script. I'm really excited, as this is a super positive step for me, but really nervous at the same time. All she said was she "wants to discuss Adonis and my writing career," so I'm not sure what to expect.

Don't get me wrong, this is uniformly a positive thing. I earned an executive's interest through the strength of my pitch and my screenplay. She wants to talk to me because of that. But I want to present myself as well as I possibly can tomorrow. I want to vouch for my talent, my ability, my prospects of being a hireable screenwriter, but I don't want to seem like I'm demanding anything or just focused on what she can do for me. I hope, if she asks to see anything else I've written, the rest is up to snuff. Adonis is the best thing I've ever done, which of course makes sense since I chose that as my "audition" piece, but it makes me nervous if nothing else lives up to it. I KNOW I am talented, I know I am reliable and good to work with. I just need to make sure I present myself that way.

I know one conversation is not likely to be the key to all my hopes and dreams, but if this moment is in fact some kind of opportunity, I really want to make the most of it. If only to make a connection and a good impression. Wish me luck, guys.
