You’re not privy to the new shit…

It’s crazy, but new shit has come to light.

A few days ago — about a week after signing with my manager — I optioned PB to one of those producers whose movies you’ve seen more than once.

The emails, IMs and phone calls started immediately — and frequently — so I’m pretty used to them, already.

He says he wants to start shooting it in the fall and has already given his investors a heads-up. I wasn’t even going to mention this here, in case it all falls apart, but I told people the minute I knew I was pregnant the first time and was happy for the support when I miscarried a few weeks later… so there you go.

I’m excited about the possibility of this actually happening, but really haven’t thought about the “movie part” much – just focusing on the rewrite and squeezing all the comedic, real-life moments out of these characters that I can.

I’m also working on a treatment for an in-house project with my manager and another producer of note and don’t want to lose any momentum on that one – I’m really falling in love with the story and characters and look forward to putting them on the page.

So, I’m busy as hell juggling two projects, a part-time paralegal gig, mommying and wife-ing, but I’ve never been happier.

Thanks, everybody, for the congrats and well-wishes, like a bunch of virtual hugs. Hugs back at y’all…
