1/4/14, Day 13, 758: The First Jane the Plain Production Meeting
A simple title, but I’d rather name a day something on-the-nose than lose my little momentum here in the early going of 2014. And it was a great first production meeting!
1/5/14, Day 13,759: The End of Superwomen, the Beginning of Byers Pages
This day is so named for our wonderful first Flux Sunday of 2014, which featured (among many highlights), the final scene of Aja Houston’s hilarious and heartfelt Superwomen + Beauty Queens=World Peace?, and the (witty, welcoming) first pages Becky Byers has ever brought to Flux Sunday. A happy|sad beginning|ending kind of day that also included some crazy new pages for Be Happy and an exciting meeting to announce the theme, “Identity at the Intersections” for New York Madness.
1/6/14, Day 13, 760: Mid-Year for the Lark Workshop
Another not-so-creative-yet-certainly-accurate title for this day, which included an intensely productive day at TCG followed by a mid-year check-in about the Lark Workshop with John Eisner and Lloyd Suh. I still I can’t quite believe I get to walk into a room with those writers every other Monday night.
Technique never stands still: it only advances or retreats…
