Ever feel like you're being tested? Like God has a sense of humor?
As most of you know, I write screenplays. I've had some success, placed in an international film festival, had a play performed on stage by actors, but since I've never actually sold one, it's still a hobby.
Wednesday afternoon I had an email that a production company was interested in one of my new screenplays. I had to send them a PDF file and an email with some information.
I write my little note, hit attach file and ADOBE FATAL ERROR. What??? Are you kidding me? I've sent hundreds of PDF files. I just finished sending pictures to my sister (not PDF, but everything seemed to be working).
Easy enough, just put the information on a flash drive and send it from my son's laptop. "Something happened, ma, my computer is so slow I can't send anything". What??? Are you kidding me?
So yesterday it was off to the Geek Squad with 2 laptops under my arms.
And back out the door empty handed.
Where can I send it from? Almost everyone I know is working, or at least half an hour away.
I did finally get my file sent. From the library (who knew you could just go in and use their computers?) Of course I was so excited when I hit SEND that I left my flash drive in the library computer.
No one ever said life was going to be easy.
Wish me luck with the production company...
