Crazy Time

It's been a bit of a crazy year, in good and unexpected ways. The unfortunate downside is that my online maintenance has fallen by the wayside and this blog had virtually disappeared from my to-do list.  Time for a well-deserved update.  But after eight months or so, how do you climb back on the horse in a sensible way?  Does it even matter, in our attention-fractured society, if there's any continuity? Best to just plunge back into the bloggy waters...

I've found a weird thing happening over the past few months -- work breeds work.

The more projects you have going, the more people you come in contact with, the more opportunities you are presented with. I've been unexpectedly busy the last six months, partially because of this kind of chain of events.  Also, the importance of networking and network maintenance, as in my earlier postings, comes into play. One of the projects currently the most active is one with a friend from film school.  It's been a long time since those days, but because this guy's part of my network, when a project in my wheelhouse came up, I was on his go-to list. Now we're on the brink of shooting a TV Pilot.  More on that later as it develops.

Ride the wave.  When the crazy time strikes, be happy you've got too much work.
