nickelodeon writing fellowship – my first week

my first week at nickelodeon is already over! it was a full week. here’s a quick rundown:

when we got there on monday morning, the other 2 fellows and i had a meeting with karen, the director of the fellowship. she welcomed us, told us what to expect, and gave us gifts of the book bird by bird.

we had to start writing our bios; one to verbally pitch in meetings, and one to go on the website.

we had individual meetings with karen and got feedback on the scripts we originally submitted. she gave me great notes on my 30 rock spec. the revision is due monday.
