So... how scared are people about this?

A friend sent me this from an informational meeting on the ABC Disney Fellowship:


ARE THERE ANY SPECS THE ABC/DISNEY FELLOWSHIP PREFERS?

You don’t have to write a spec for an ABC show to be considered. You should spec a primetime network or cable show that’s been on at least three years (3 seasons) that is well known. It’s important to not only capture the voice of the show, but to really reflect your point of view. Bring something new to the table, something unique, while still working within the framework of the show.

Story Timeline: Your spec should be where the show is as of July 1st, 2009.

It's really that last one that is the kicker. Do you seriously need a spec that's current as of ... well, as of two weeks from today?

Alive


In fact, not only alive, but reading, writing, rewriting, calling, emailing, faxing, resume-ing, working, and trying really hard to grow one of my toenails back.

Free tip: don't be effing clumsy.

Free tip numero dos: set up a reminder to pay your car registration on time and GO TO THE DMV to do it. Apparently, they aren't required to send you those little reminders to register, despite the fact the those reminders are the ONLY PLACE where you get your registration number, which you need to have if you want to register by mail or online. So I repeat -- if you don't want a fee that nearly doubles your registration, set up a reminder and block off time to just go to the frigging DMV.

I read lots of picked up pilots, so I'll be back with thoughts soon.
