I had the meeting with the agent. It was fine but I didn't get promoted to the "New but unproduced writers" list. But they still want to talk to me and see any new scripts. I'm pretty happy with that.
So I call them my (almost) agent. Having an (almost) agent retains all the disadvantages of not having an agent but also contains the soul-destroying* hope that one day they might actually want to represent you.
In the meantime I have very nearly finished my Running rewrite and I'm thinking of changing my planned Script Frenzy script to something that fits the Steampunk world that Chris (the Director) and I have been working on. Something that would be incredibly expensive to make :-)
In other news
I have had a extension on my current job contract - but I'll have "work from home" flexibility, which is very nice indeed.
*Only soul-destroying until they actually say "we want to represent you".
What's on the turntable? "Bach's Prelude No.1, BWV 846" played by the Jacques Louissier Jazz Trio. Yummy.
