2009 Disney-ABC application almost out...

I've locked down my Pushing Daisies spec, finished up my Disney-ABC application materials, and will be putting it in the mail tomorrow. I'd like to give shout outs to Beckylooo, Emily, Isabel, Kari, Liz, Michael, Rob, and TheWife for all their feedback at various stages in the process. Your input (especially the beatdown *someone* gave a draft I thought was *good*) helped make this as good as it is.

I'm pretty damn happy with it, and it wouldn't be near as good if it weren't for all y'all.

I've included a scene I'm quite fond of below. And yes, I know. My action lines are still too long. I'm working on it. My next spec will be a marvel in adjective- and adverb-free writing, I swear.

Oh, and Scribd can suck my cock. I looked, but I see no copyright options other than Creative Commons. In general, I support CC licensing. Not for this, thanks. Of course, it's already been registered with the WGA-W, so it doesn't really matter, but that still pisses me off. They need to allow for licensing other than CC.

There's a PDF plugin below, FeedReader.

Excellent! Has me very curious to read the whole thing, as well as more anxious than I was for the new season to start. Bravo!

Thanks, Tosy. It feels like we've been waiting a year for new episodes. I'm really looking forward to it, too. As long as they don't do anything to make my spec out-of-date too quickly. :)
