I'm packing tomorrow for my first cruise ever! We're going to Canada and New England. Ahoy! I can't wait and I can't promise that I won't do the "Top of the World" thing at some point. Hey, I did the Rocky victory dance thing at the top of the Philadelphia Museum steps -- I'm a nerd.

I'm not going to do any official writing on this vacation but lots of mental writing. You know how that goes -- imagining scenes, dialogue, characters, etc.

I have a bunch of scripts out right now awaiting feedback from L.A. producers. An agent in NYC is interested in repping me. We're going to meet after my vacation. I'm looking forward to that.

Bon Jovi's doing a "free" concert in Central Park today. I wanted to see it, but they tickets were distributed at ball parks. I never got to pick up the free tix. They're selling on Ebay and elsewhere for tons of money. Why didn't they just do a wristband? Printing tickets in advance is crazy in this internet sell-anything world.

I'll post after the 20th... until then... livin' on a prayer.

Oh, Janet, that's wonderful news about meeting with a prospective agent when you return! Not only is this cruise so wonderful to look forward to, but then to return to what can change your writing career?! Break a nail! :)) p.s. Bon Jovi, what a hottie. Am sorry you missed him! Bon voyage, Janet!

Hello Janet, I just read your reply to me in your comment to my comment on your Service post for the first time tonight. That's wonderful that you have two screenplays optioned. And without an agent. You are tenacious! And obviously, quite talented. But if you ever want to contact me, on a
one-to-one basis, let me know, and I'll give you my email address or vice versa. Petra

Hi Petra,

Thanks for your posts. Let's touch base through email and if you're ever in Manhattan, let's get together and chat about writing. The cruise was terrific! Just what was needed... nothing like beams of moonlight on the ocean at night to inspire.
