Yesterday I booked my flight to Los Angeles. I love going back. I will begin the process now of filling my time with meetings and people and becoming acquainted with my city again.
I got a pretty good deal flying into Santa Ana instead of LAX, it's a drive, a bit but I think worth it for the significant savings.
I am in the submission process with film festivals, so far I have submitted to six festivals but I won't hear anything until after September 1st, some will be even longer. I'm ridiculously excited and scared at the same time. I don't want to deal with the rejection but some is sure to come, and surely I have dealt with enough of it in my life. It can't all be roses.
I am so glad I stuck with this. Just having and knowing that this is real now is really worthwhile.
