(EDIT: it's been pointed out this makes it look like I have a publisher lined up. I don't, so my literary agent OH YES I'VE GOT TWO AGENTS is sending it off to various different publishers. Are you a publisher? Why not call me now, before missing THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME!!!!!)
Obviously all sorts of things can go wrong in all sorts of direction, but sometimes it's okay to look back and think 'Hmm. That was quite a good day'.
Also I was able to make a start on the second episode of my teen drama thing, after the BBC Drama department okayed the outline, a process which went something like this:
SFX: phone rings
BBC DRAMA DEPT.: (sobbing) Is james there?
BBC DRAMA DEPT.: OH MY GOD WE DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME!
ME: We don't?
BBC DRAMA DEPT.: The outline went to the highest levels. THE HIGHEST LEVELS! Word from on high is (whispers) you may proceed to stage two
ME: You mean actually writing it?
BBC DRAMA DEPT.: I can't talk now, I think this phone is tapped.
SFX: Click. Brrrrrrrrrr....
Because they're the 'Drama' department, you see. They do everything in quite a dramatic- oh please yourselves.
