I didn’t get to post on Friday. We were at some friends’ place for dinner and didn’t get home until too late.
I sent my outline to members of my writing group (because they asked to see it). I just reviewed the one guy’s comments. As per usual, his feedback/suggestions ran hot and cold. Sometimes I think he’s got the right idea; sometimes I don’t get where he’s coming from.
He’s a nice guy, but he’s been working on the same script for about 2 years now, with lots and lots of rewrites. This happened with his previous script, which kept undergoing changes for almost the same length of time. As far as I know, he never got a complete draft written.
To be honest, I skimmed what he said and will probably be a bit more thorough about it tomorrow, which is when the female member of our group comes over. For the time being, he can’t take part, since he’s performing in a show. I’m intrigued as to what she has to say. She has also not completed a draft of anything for as long as I’ve known her, which is a little less than 8 years.
This has happened before, but after I wrote about not hearing from Manager Guy, I heard from him! Unfortunately, he had no news, which is better than “they said no”. He remains “enthusiastically optimistic” he will hear back from several people he contacted. I don’t mind if he hears back, just as long as it’s good news.
And by good news, I mean they want to buy. Or at least have some meetings.
That would be really nice.
