Good news and bad news. Let's see if they even out.

BAD NEWS: I still have no job (and not for lack of trying for four months).

GOOD NEWS: THE PARANORMALISTS is on imdb and in some festivals.

BAD NEWS: I have serious writer's block and I'm going crazy.

GOOD NEWS: ELAN VITAL is done, GOOD, and on it's way to festivals.

BAD NEWS: I am SERIOUSLY out of shape. Like, seriously.

GOOD NEWS: I'm teaching TWO Shakespeare classes a week now.

BAD NEWS: My Unemployment checks haven't arrived for over a month and I can't get them on the phone.

GOOD NEWS: I'm working on NEVERMORE as a screenplay an hopefully getting it out before the end of the year.

BAD NEWS: I'm not spending Christmas in Baltimore with my extended family.

GOOD NEWS: I AM spending it in Pittsburgh with my immediate fam and most likely everybody else will drive down at some point. So THAT'S alright.

BAD NEWS: Very few auditions and no temp work.

GOOD NEWS: Taking a voiceover class where we're doing networking and trying to help one another get work.

Well, it looks pretty even. Of course, the "no money" thing is looming over the whole situation like the Big Black Cloud all heavy with the rain that that shadowed the ground on Kapiti Plain. (Anybody remember that book?)

Seriously considering writing a spec script for West Wing simply because I want to. I just need a plot. Hmmmmm....

Just stopped by to say hello and hope that all is well with you. Are you participating in NaNo this year? I am undecided as we are about to make a major move and I'm not sure when that will start. I'm so glad to see that you are still at work on Nevermore - the play you so kindly allowed me to read was wonderful and I have great hopes that you will go far with the screenplay. Drop me a line if you find the time.
