It's been a long time coming, but it finally happened.

Been a while.
In the past few months, I got a temp job, then lost it, then got it back, then was hired on full-time. My bills are being paid, which is a good thing.
I also had my "agent" mess up two different deals that could've gotten me a paycheck with tons of zeros. After being with this "agent" for two years, I realized she was getting me nowhere.
I admit, I stuck it out longer than I should have, but I finally fired her last week.
|I should've done this months ago!|
For the past few months1, I've had awesome representation through Paul C. Escoll Management. Paul's a great guy, he's managed some of the best, and things are progressing well.
We now have our projects on some of the highest desks in the biz! We've already been rejected by SyFy, who said they loved our project, but couldn't do it right now. Regardless, I'm very excited about the new direction!
Mark and I also started a Facebook page for our projects. Mark's been doing a lot for us, as well. Check out our page, if you get a chance. Lots going on over there!
How are things with you, Pandas?
1. Yes, you read that right. I had a manager and an agent at the same time. Paul is a great manager. We've worked together in the past. He's done more for me in the past few months than my "agent" ever did in two years. So glad I transitioned!

Morning, Pandas! Hope you've had a great past few weeks. I've been quite busy. You see, I broke down and got a job. "Broke" being the operative word, here. Free rewrites just don't pay the bills like they used to.
The job market here is pretty slim, so I had to go through a temp agency. I originally started part-time, but after one day they asked if I'd like full-time hours.
Years ago, I managed multimillion-dollar businesses, and I always hated going home with work. It was a minimum of a 55-hour work week, plus several hours at home working on employee schedules and whatnot. It was draining.
So when the temp agency looked at my qualifications and said that this job was beneath me, I told the lady, "I'm okay with that."
So far, I've been doing a lot of filing, copying, and filing. I don't mind it. I spend my time either filing in someone else's office, or sitting in a cubicle, where I sort out some of my projects for collating.
On Friday, they had me sending out anniversary cards for people, even though I insisted that I had horrible handwriting. I never had decent handwriting, and then I learned cursive Cyrillic... It was all downhill from there. My handwriting's never recovered.
I wrote out a sample of my handwriting. Boss declared it good enough, and said said that if I didn't care, she didn't care. I probably hand-wrote 75 anniversary cards. My hand started cramping after, oh, two.
|I was going to let the little slip-ups go, |
but then I butchered her name.
Anyway, the job pays my bills, though I don't know for how long. And, it still gives me time to write. It's a stepping stone.
What's new with you?
