Nothing feels better than handing off a draft to deadline. I am so excited by the progress of the script. The last six weeks of rewrites have been electric, I’ve felt very dialed into the ‘how’s’ of screenwriting this year.

Now Dan and I will wait for feedback from our story editor, American producer Reena Dutt, which will then lead to hand off to Telefilm at the end of March. Excited!
