May Day

It's May, it's May, hurray.

What's more, I actually met a deadline. I turned in the first draft of my script for episode eight of A GAME OF THRONES to David and Dan on the day it was due. Today, as it happens.

It's too long and too expensive, but that's true of every first draft teleplay and screenplay that I ever wrote. I've titled it "The Pointy End," though I don't know if that will endure. Last I heard, it hadn't been decided whether we'd be using episode titles or not.

One monkey off my back. At least until it's time for rewrites, and the second draft.

Other monkeys are still frolicking up there, including Kong. He was a king in his world, but we'll teach him fear...
