The Return

You go away for a few days and the whole world falls apart. You struggle to stay awake in your appointed post in the normal world, to remember what others in the flourescent lighting know you for. You wake up at 1 pm, body struggling to regain equilibrium after diligent weeks of writing and four sleepless days at the Austin Film Festival and Screenwriters’ Conference.

And you return again and again to those moments of magic transmission between those who have trodden the path and those who courageously seek the way. To the wayfarers at both stages of the journey, thank you for your abiding generosity and support. You know who you are.

Thanks to Jim of Maine for the picture.

While there were many many highlights in the Austin experience this year, one of the lowlights was *not* getting to sit in on that Sunday morning Shane Black panel (where I hear he mentioned SOMEBODY'S pet project... ahem), as Shane always has a weird way of re-motivating me and making me ready to forgo sleep and food if need be to advance further down the path to screenwriting success.

It was supremely cool to hang with you and get a better feel for what you're up to. We will meet again.

Hey Brett,

Likewise, I'm glad we got to hang. As for SOMEBODY's pet project, um, well, YEAH! It was freakin' AWESOME. More to come.

Hey man, it was solid to meet you. You're cool hat for sure. I plan to hear bigger and better things from both of us next year.
