I had a great time at the WGC Awards. Didn't win, but it was great to get to meet some of the people whose shows I've been watching, like Shelley Eriksen, who runs Show Me Yours, and Mark Farrell, who writes Corner Gas, and discover that they are not only skilled and talented writers but good looking, too. It was one of the more glamorous nights of my year, and we all got the warm fuzzies from being all together applauding our own. And of course, I got to meet old friends and cronies and people who've hired me and people who might hire me. The writing community in Toronto is something like ten times as large as in Montreal, it would appear -- all the Montrealers writing in English can fit inside a bar, and this was a large club. Although in fairness, at least some of the people were from Vancouver and there was a small Montreal cohort, including the indefatigable Leila Basen, head of the Quebec negotiating team and almost as important for the feeling of solidarity, the Quebec martini-fest. Bumped into the Cirrus people, but alas, not winning, did not get to thank them for the existence of Naked Josh, so I'll have to thank them here. (If this is a bit rambling, well, the beer was good, and free.)

I'm almost done with my Toronto meetings. This was a very productive trip, in terms of meeting possible agents for English Canada. I also pitched Exposure to my favorite network executive, who liked it, so that's a big step forward, and I had lunch with my one my favorite people for the producer job on Exposure too. (If that seemed a bit tortured, it's because there are two kinds of "producers" in TV, one the kind who put together the financing, and the other the guy who sits in the office next to the showrunner and fights to get the show in on time and on budget while still delivering the creative goods. I'm meeting another production company tomorrow; then it's off on the express train home to my family.

And now, to bed.

Aha I Knew it !!
Ok no actually... I had just guessed that but now I know for sure... even as an 'inexperienced' writer I think I should make more of an effort to meet with writers in Toronto, esp. those that may be on the same learning curve as me.

Neat update !

Also, i can't wait for your book. ( I have the first one and I go over parts of it often when I write. )

Anyway, I hope it's as detailed, and generous as the first one... no pressure though, ha ha !!
