For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been working with producers to develop a sitcom. It’s been an exciting time for me, and while I’d love to share more information, I simply can’t at this time.
I will tell you this—it will make you laugh your ass off!
No matter what happens with it, I will come out of this experience a winner, because even if it eventually gets passed over by all the networks, I’ve made a lot of good connections, and I’ve had a lot of fun.
I’ve had some people ask me how I came across this opportunity. It was a culmination of several different things going on in my life. The people I was working with, the free time I had available, and blurting out an idea that the ‘right’ person just so happened to hear.
For the last couple of years, I’ve worked with many different people doing a variety of things. Basically, I’m a ‘project manager’ for my clients, beta reading, making corrections, lining up ARC reviews, doing ads, etc. Doing the little things people hate doing.
I’ve developed a great reputation due to the speed and quality of my work. These two things are incredibly important in the entertainment industry. I’ve also been told I’m easy to work with. I don’t upcharge if my clients go back and make significant revisions. I put all my efforts into positioning my clients for success, and it shows.
Now, I’m not saying others shouldn’t upcharge. People deserve to get paid for their work, but if I had to guess why someone would choose to work with me over others, I’d say it could be because they took this into consideration, but those aren’t my only good qualities.
I also make people laugh, whether it’s intentional or not. I’m not scared to point out my own flaws. I think outside the box. And I’m not afraid to try new things.
So, that’s my main project right now. I’ll be giving updates here and there, and I hope people like it as much as I like writing it.
