Pins and needles

A screenwriter I've been mentoring is being considered for her first for-hire gig. On pins and needles, hoping she gets it. They don't know what a gift she is. A talented collaborator as well as screenwriter.

As I get ready to retire from teaching, she's one of 6 or 8 screenwriters I've successfully mentored over the years, all of them "professional" whether they pursue(d) a career or not. One, in fact, only wrote 2 scripts but came very close to selling both, strong interest in her work, DeVito a fan, but walked away to do something else. It's not a secure profession.
