Expo Wrap-Up (Part III)
Then there were a few free drinks at the post-pitch cocktail party, where I also had a really nice conversation with one of the students from my second seminar. (If you're reading this -- hey!)
But then it was off to the Figueroa for drinks with the extended Scribosphere family! At the certainty (it ain't even just a risk) of leaving some of you out (and if I do, please accept my apologies and chime in in the comments field), we saw Wise Warren (of course), Shawna, Chris, Neal, Jim, Kira, John, Trish (and roommate Andi (or is it Andy)), Writergurl, Bill, Sarah, and many others. Warren, Shawna, and Trish all had digital cameras there, so they might post some pics. Or if they email me, I may post a few as well!
I'd say about 85% of the people hanging around the Veranda Bar were Expo attendees, so even those who were not officially part of the Scribogathering came to drink and chat with us. In particular, I had a lovely time with Zack and Jak of the London Script Consultancy. They're cool, lots of fun, and certainly not shy about speaking their minds.
Also spent some good time with Chris Soth, and we had a nice chat on the way home. A good man and nice guy who knows his stuff. Check out Million Dollar Screenwriting, as I mentioned previously.
Lastly, I'll give a brief shout out to a few other of you fine people that I saw over the course of the weekend. It was really lovely to finally meet Liz, and catch up with her briefly. And there was also Bernie Su (whose TV blog address I can't find, or who has taken it down). Good to see you again, bro. I'm sure there were others, but my brain is still a bit fried! :-)
All in all, an awesome weekend full of good friends, good conversation, good experiences, and lots of free shit. ;-) Hope to see you all at similar events in the future!
