On the Horizon

It's been a pretty slow week. I've been trying to stay productive and keep busy with some things that need to get done. I'm trying to design a postcard for my Prison Break airing (Sept 1st) and I've been refilling my manager's stash of headshots on me. Gotta make sure they have enough to keep submitting me! :)
Well, while I was in the office on Friday, my manager pulled me aside to talk about the possible series regular contract that I could be signing. Wow! She talked about how the contract would probably be for 7 years, and how I may want to hire a attorney to look it over, and to consider things like exclusivity clauses which limit my other work on different networks if I book this role. As I tried to stay focused and professional, my mind was being blown away at the thought of me possibly BOOKING this role and my biggest dream being fulfilled!! It's crazy to feel even this close to it! I'm trying not to get too excited about it, just in case it doesn't go my way....I'd hate to feel that huge disappointment! But it makes me feel good that my manager is pretty confident about me and feels like this really could be mine! Nice! I feel the same way - I just try not to say that outloud too much! hahaha Just in case....
Well, I thought I would be going in again this week to meet the other producers, but it looks like they are seeing a couple of other different roles and I won't be called in until next week.
Surprisingly, I feel very calm and at peace about this job. Not really nervous or unsure. I feel we'll see what happens. :)
