Gossip Girls Pilot and more

Ah, it has been a nice Sunday so far! :) It's about 87 degrees here today, so I washed the car and hosed the porch, all while trying to come up with a new pitch for my agent. I think I may have one, folks! I wonder if I'll try to pull a NaNo and write it in 30 days and then go back and edit before anyone ever sees it. I've been meaning to e-mail Chris Baty at NaNo and share my news with him, but haven't had the time yet. Does anyone listen to the NaNo radio addresses each week? I haven't in a while, but I did today. It's all about e-book publishing, for those of you who are interested.

My girl Ella told me that Gossip Girls is becoming a pilot for The CW. Anyone else hear about that? I Googled it and found that Josh Schwartz (creator of "The OC") is set to produce the show. I'm incredibly curious to see how that goes. Apparently, there was supposed to be a movie with the amazing Amy Sherman-Palladino ("Gilmore Girls!") writing and Lindsay Lohan starring, but it fell through.

Now, I'll spend the rest of the day on school work. I spent about ten hours editing on Friday and sent off a few rewrites on Sat, so it's back to school now. 3 more weeks of classes...gotta keep reminding myself! :)

Oh, I had heard that rumor too! I'm glad that The CW is going through with it - that series definitely has enough interesting drama to make a solid tv show.

And you only have three weeks left? I'm more than a little jealous, Jess!

I can't wait to see it! :) I've only read one GG, how about you?

Yep! Three weeks of class and one week of finals. I'm SO excited! Did you decide on a grad school yet?

I've only read one also, but my little sister is practically religious about them. The show will definitely have a market following once the high-school crowd finds out.

Three weeks - that is so exicting! Here, we still have a month and half left, but it is starting to go by soo quickly. Which is probably because I haven't yet decided which school to pick - I'm stuck twiddling my thumbs until med school letters get here!
