My first rejection. Am I the lucky one?

Howdy folks in the ScriboSphere. I'm on Cloud 9 right now as I managed in 3 months of trying, to get a rejection for not 1 or 2, but 5 loglines. I love it. I can't wait until I get some more scripts finished as I could make it to 100 rejections by the end of the year.

How great is that? Some people are ignored by everyone but I can get people to say, and I quote:

but i'm not sparking to any of these ideas. my advice is to send query letters to producers and managers!

I mean how great is that? It's actual text and how many people can say they were turned down by a big shot?

It's like a dream come true. Now if only I could get a read, I might even think my life improved from being shit.

Anyway, maybe I should query,

Will write for food?

That's a good idea. I probably won't do it but hey what the hell, creativity is the key. I haven't been this giddy since I stole my first girlfriend. This one may even top the first fight in the street over me.

Man, I love this attempt at a job. I'm ready for my protag's close up Mr. De Mille.


Anyway, back to reality. I'm so pleased with myself, I could just pee. I guess my rotten life may be worth something after all as I have a very thick skin now. Almost thick enough to relocate to LA and walk around with a collection of scripts and pictures of notables.

I guess also that since SW jobs are plentiful, I could even support myself. Yes, I think that I will miss the NYC winter this year. If I can get a good deal on moving, find an apartment from 3000 miles away and find a job before I give notice where I am, I will eb an Angeleno in time for XMas. Aaaaah, joy.

Wow, this move is almost like trying to be a screenwriter. I'm not sure if that's a good sign or a bad sign but what the hell, I'm supposed to die anyway so I may as well go out in pursuit of my heart.

To all who enter:

Keep writing as writing is the revealing of the soul

A college buddy and old roommate of mine used to hang his rejections up. In one year, I think he managed somewhere between 40 and 50.

LOL. thx. I'm hoping for at least that. It evokes a serious nature to the quest. He didn't give up did he?
