WHMP 4-7-06

Got your message this week. Sorry I missed you. Your call actually lifted my spirits a lot that day. It's been a topsy turvey week emotionally, mostly work related and, of course, money stress. Everything seems cool now, though. Did I tell you I'm getting to write a second episode for the series I'm working on? I'm stoked. And a little nervous. They want it a lot sooner (and quicker) than the first one. But, what's that quote I keep repeating from the Springsteen boot in Cleveland?

"Have faith in your abilities."

That's what I'm trying to do.

You'll be happy to know that I'm working on an new feature script as well. It has nothing to do with the horror genre. In fact, it's an attempt at a high school romantic comedy. Someone actually asked me to write this one, so I'm not flying solo.

I didn't think of it until this morning, but I'm really enjoying the whole process of writing this script. I'm actually being given the opportunity to a) write a story I've wanted to tell for years b) incorororate awareness of CF [but not making this a "message" film] and c) write on my own without anyone giving me criteria to write. It's pretty sweet.

I'm sure the revision process will be full of surprises, but for now, I'm having fun.

Here's a little something' to commemorate Opening Day at Jacob's Field. Loser that I am, I don't have "Centerfield" on hand, but then I remembered I had this little gem by Miss Jett. What's better than a Springsteen song recorded by Joan Jett for a movie shot in, yes, Cleveland, Ohio.

After a miserable week, I can see the light, bro. It's just around the corner.

Thanks -- as always -- for the music. Unfortunately -- as always -- I'm
buried at the moment and so unable to respond appropriately.

I can't help but observe, though, that to an uninformed, non-industry
guy, it sure seems like your writing career has moved from crawling to
cruising to, toddling to, now, walking confidently and starting to run.
It's good to see you on your feet again.

I will try to call you this weekend. Marianne's grandmother took a bad
health turn this week, and there's a chance we will spend our time in
and out of a Richmond hospital. If that doesn't happen, I hope we can
talk.

Please give my best to your family.

Steve
