Stare Into Space

It’s the tiny victories

Posted on | September 30, 2008 | 6 Comments

This morning, as I stare into the bathroom mirror repeating the phrase ‘I’m a winner’, I can do so with more conviction than usual. Today, people, I am a winner.

My short scene entry over at The Rouge Wave was voted the best. Hurrah for me! My first earnings from writing, an Amazon gift certificate for $25, will soon be virtually winging its virtual way to me.  If I may be permitted another hurrah?


Although this is a small victory, I am encouraged and emboldened.  I would be feaverishly working on a spec script now if I hadn’t spent the last eight hours writing my acceptance speech.  A couple more drafts and it should be ready.  Four, tops.  Maybe five.
