Now that there are people out there who believe in our project and have guaranteed us serious money to see it made, the dynamics are considerably different. No longer is it just fun and games, it's something that better be good. Here's the catch: it'll only be good if we take risks. And taking risks is easier when nobody's watching you, let alone expecting anything of you. So this is what I'm doing – I'm pretending I'm an olympic gymnast, surrounded by a fanatic crowd watching her every move. She only stands a chance of winning if she gives it everything she's got, but at the risk of making mistakes and losing. It worked, at least for today.
Meanwhile, it's 5.04 pm. Time to pick up my son.
