Some days take a toll on one's morale, and for me, this was one. It was a long day--on campus for eleven hours. It's funny, as this morning I was contemplating the energy and bit of hope I felt, and wondering if it would survive the day. Some days it does survive--it only takes an odd scrap of encouragement here or there, but 'twas not to be today. By 11am I had read that my script was not among the fifty finalists announced at Amazon Studios. I will give a fuller report in a couple of days.
