Good vibes!

The executive producer and his partner are thrilled with the first draft of the new screenplay; November is dedicated to finessing and rewriting it to make it as perfect as it can be.

We'll have an actor's reading -- where I cast actors to portray the characters in a sit-down read - in December for potential investors, film industry folks and "earthlings" - real people - after which we're creating a production schedule unless it's picked up by a studio -- which wouldn't happen until the Writer's Guild of America strike is over.

What a lot of work -- research, details, character development and dialogue finessing. But I must say I'm very proud of it.

Wow. It feels so good to have escorted this high caliber script through a powerful, quality first draft, on its way to an excellent finish.

Next month I'll be finessing my two romantic comedy feature scripts and either talk with non-signatory producers or do what I can to get the scripts produced or sell them without crossing the WGA "picket line."

What an enriching experience this last script development and writing has been. I love writing scripts that have so much substance and depth they change my life. I guess that's why I write -- all four scripts I've worked on this year have been like that. VERY kewl.

I may even take a day off to play in honor of the work!

I'll let you know every detail as soon as I am free to disclose everything!
