Wow! I’m here to tell you folks that I’ve finished the first draft of my book! It was three months ago when I last gave you an update.
My draft ends at 37,500 words. This is a bit on the short side, even for non-fiction. But as I go through it on my second pass, I hope to flesh it out with more anecdotes, as well as material gleaned from the tantalizing “miscellaneous” files in the “Script” folders on my computer.
I should mention, for readers who don’t know, that the book is a memoir of my decade working in the film and TV business here in Montreal during the 1990s. I’m hoping it will appeal to everyone who’s curious about what it’s like to work on a film production, what the elements of a script are, and other such stuff. 🙂
I’m still playing with the title, to make it as enticing as possible.
Onward with Phase II tomorrow!
