Back Off On The Brakes

Well, I was going along at a good clip on the new script and then hit the brakes and skidded to a stop.

Been tired at night and busy during lunch. Gotta start up again.

A bit of inspiration: last weekend while having drinks with my friend who is an attorney and who also went to med school, I picked his brain about some legal and medical details that I'll need to iron out for the plot to work. He helped me iron.

Freshly creased, this weekend I'm back at it.

As an aside, expert friends are invaluable. My advice: don't be afraid to ask for input, even if you're not entirely sure what you're asking - generally people love being involved. Maybe it's just me, but I gain so much from talking through potential obstacles - much more than staring at the monitor trying to figure it out on my own... which invariably leads to checking email, reading the Guardian, Googling...

By the way, I didn't make the next cut in the PAGE Awards, so I guess I have to settle for top 25%.

Action script is still out to a management company (who also requested my drama from last year), some pro screenwriters I've made contact with and a couple of producers. So far, no news.
