    Yeah, I was sort of being tongue-in-cheek with that remark.

    But I did learn something. I suck at interviews and must try to find a way to engineer my career so that I never have to speak to anyone in person ever again. Perhaps I could say I had a tragic voice-box accident and am permanently mute.

    Hey, sorry to hear that, but like the silver-green lining person and I Dream of Jeannie said, sounds like a viable concept so go ahead and write it. Maybe by the time you finish it, you'll be able to talk once again.

    I truly believe that if an opportunity doesn't pan out, it wasn't meant for you. Something better is on the horizon. Not to say this isn't a great opportunity for people who were chosen, just that there is inevitably some better option for you, personally. I say go ahead and write the script. Top 1% should be pretty motivating....now get off DD and start writing!

    I hate silver lining people when I'm grumpy about something, but I'm going to be a silver lining person right now. Maybe a green lining person: I'm envious of the affirmation you got of the potential viability of your project even though you didn't make it. You were up there.

    But still, that doesn't make it any less of a bummer that you weren't selected. That's a real letdown. Sorry. Keep at it...

    Thanks! It's a story idea I've been working on for awhile, but Scott does ask you to be willing to start from scratch if you are chosen.

    Congrats! Please let us know how it goes.
    Thanks, I will!

    Thanks, guys. I'm really excited about the opportunity and given that my story ideas are usually on the low-concept side, it's especially gratifying to have come up with something commercially viable.
