Thinking is dangerous.

At least for me. I get into 'what if X' conversations with myself and they never end well.

I have not heard from Fox again, so apologies for no exciting updates. As The Engineer reminded me last night, it's a 12 month deal. They've got loooots of time left. And, it's the holiday season. Much as I would rather know something soon, I have to face the fact that I may not hear anything new until next year.

I do wonder, though, whether some of the silence stems from the O.J. book controversy. Who was going to publish the book? HarperCollins (well, Regan Books, but same parent). Who was going to air the special? Fox. Both of the FanLit sponsors. I suspect that they're veeery busy.

Add to that that we're sliding into Sweeps Week and I'm not really shocked that my phone isn't ringing off the hook.

In better news, though I'm not really doing NaNoWriMo (and thus haven't shown up over at the boards), I *have* written almost 28K so far this month. That's a lot for me. More importantly, I've finished a couple of projects I was dragging my feet over. Go go determination!

Yes, I'm sure the people at Fox have their hands very very full at the moment. Do keep us updated though.

So, just out of curiosity, did they have any ideas for what they wanted, or did you have to come up with everything? Is it an Historical? How hard was it to come up with something?

I haven't pitched anything yet, Alice. :) I got contact information, and that's it. Nothing else even remotely exciting has happened. ;)

Good luck on the Fox deal. . . it'll be interesting to see how it all shakes out.

Congrats on the 28K words this month. I finished an 11,000-word e-novella and give myself credit for about 18,000 words "written" as I wrote most of the story long-hand before typing and editing it. I pressed the submit button on it last night, so I, too, am playing the waiting game. It's not easy!

Have a great T-day!

I've totally missed what the Fox thing is about but it sounds cool, so good luck with it!
