I am trying not to be anxious. But I will find out in a few days if my script made it to one of the film festivals 1/4 finalists. It is always difficult to put ourselves out there with the possibility of being rejected. But as Wayne Gretzky once stated: “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take!”

It takes a lot of courage. I am confident we have an award winning script. But I also run the risk of others not feeling the same way. So do we just do nothing and miss 100% of the shot we didn’t take? Or do we have the courage to put ourselves out there on display? I prefer to have the courage, which usually comes with being afraid. It is both exciting and scary at the same time. I have worked on the script for over 6 years. I kid you not. The first time I sent it out for coverage, I think it came back with one line that was good and the rest, the pages were marked up. But I learned from that. I was able to accept constructive criticism. I was shown the need for improvement, and I sucked up the pride and did what was needed to fix the errors.

But with my script now, I believe it has been fine tuned. When instruments are out of tune they cannot create the beautiful music they were created to.

Fine tune” is defined as: “make small adjustments to (something) in order to achieve the best or a desired performance.” I believe we have done that. We made so many small adjustments that really set this script over the top. But it took a long time to perfect it. This doesn’t mean it won’t have some other small adjustments once on set, but I am 100 percent convinced we do have an award winning script. If others do not see it that way, I am still confident that minds will be changed, once it is shown in its full, living, breathing, color; with all the bells and whistles, to make it a huge success. I trust in the peace that I feel inside. We didn’t just stop at mediocre. Here at Summer Ray, we didn’t want ordinary. We wanted an explosion of extraordinary, astonishing, amazing and exceptional.

Fingers crossed I will get to create some happy laurels!
