Notes continue to trickle in for the comedy-now-dramedy spec. General consensus – solid concept, underdeveloped, reads like a first draft, still needs a ton of work, and so forth.
All of which is fine by me. I wrote it in an extremely short amount of time, which is probably quite evident in the draft itself. It’s also the fastest I’ve ever cranked out a draft, and to me that’s still a victory in itself.
Would I have loved for everybody to gush about it and claim it truly wonderful? Of course, but that ain’t gonna happen. As long as nobody says “This is terrible!”, I’m good.
Is it at least a decent script? Well, I like it. There’s a lot of potential in it, and the quality can only improve from its current state.
So while the thoughts of “what to fix and how to fix it” percolate, I’ll slide it to the always-expanding back burner and move on to the next couple of items on my agenda, which includes notes on some friends’ specs, followed by the first draft of a long-in-development project.
Exciting times, chums.
