No longer Seekrit projekt

So, Song of Ice and Fire is to be a miniseries on HBO.

I knew about this long before the deal was signed. In fact, way back at WorldCon, I gave a spec script for an episode directly to grrm, who was shocked that I'd managed to do so the very day that he'd signed the deal. He was forthright about saying that the project has two high-profile writers attached, and I now know that those writers are David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Given that I haven't heard a word back about the script - not even a rejection - I can only assume that my super-awesome-dream-come-true-scenario remains the sort of dreamy little dream that one meditates on over coffee by the sea in the morning. Which, I can assure you, I have.

I remain excited by the series coming to HBO...but am naturally disappointed that I won't get to be "2nd Class Script Flunky in charge of Westeros Continuity" or something. But the lovely thing about LA? There's a super-awesome-dream-come-true -scenario around every corner. Each one may be a long shot - but a long shot is still a shot. That's my motto, and I'm sticking to it!

No, I included a thorough release form, as any professional would do. They won't read your script if you don't provide a release.

Earthsea was Sci-Fi though.

With HBO (see Deadwood, Rome, OZ, and the Sopranos) there is a real chance that this might be something good:).

Yeah - HBO's series have been flat-out amazing. If it gets the same budget, attention, and talent as say, Rome - it will be fantastic.

I'm pretty excited about that... sadly, I don't have HBO, sadly you didn't get to write any of it... But, woot. Do you think it'll be good?

I actually do think it will be really good. HBO's series are incredible.

Get a scope my man. They make the long shots easier.

(This comment was supposed to be witty. Rereading it, I find it to be one of the lease helpful things I can think of to say. Still posting it though, cause it might still pass as witty.)

No worries - it elicited a genuine "lol" from me. And I only type that when it's literally true.
