At Work in the Thought Factory

So now here I am in Brooklyn having settled in (sort of) and beginning to figure out what I want to do with myself (to some extent).
It's both frightening and exciting to think what a huge city this is and how many different directions my life could take, but in the words of E.B. White "no one should come to New York to live unless he is willing to be lucky." So that's just what I'm trying to do.

It's amazing how quickly one starts to hemorrhage dollars in this city. It seems like I step out the front door of my new apartment and a stream of twenties flows from my pocket in my wake. My phone bills alone are nearing $200 a month for the office and cellphone. But what I really have to do is stop thinking about that, and start hitting the pavement to get the financing for "Down on a Dime". Doing a fast-read of the script today made me feel confident that the material is close, so for my first lucky trick, I will find a producer...
