I've been looking back on my adventure in Hollywood, culling pages from my journal...
I didn’t write an entry for eight days. I even admit in the first sentence that I should have written sooner, while it was fresh in my mind. But, I reviewed the WGAE Awards dinner, nonetheless. “It was either good or horrible.” At the conclusion of the evening, we on the committee felt really up about it and thought it went well (not counting that jerk Herb Sargent cancelling the second skit while the first was in progress). We learned later that our committee director got intense negative feedback the next morning. It wasn’t clear if it was a lot of negative feedback or just from the V.I.P.s. Or just a lot from one person. But certain people hated it.

Here was a bit looking to go topical a few months back...
While he wouldn’t exactly want to advertise the fact, Sean Spicer was actually shaking with excitement as he entered the green room. As he took one of the fancy bottles of water that was left for the VIPs, Spicer couldn’t believe this turn of events.
“Life is sure funny,” he thought to himself. “I tell a press conference that it was the biggest audience ever and they attack me. I simply repeated the same line at the Emmys and they laughed like crazy. They love me.”

Into February ’93, “my” “agent” Robbins read my Seinfeld spec and liked it enough for me to rework it a bit. He said he could get it to the Seinfeld company (“It’ll be nice getting rejected by a higher level of talent”). I even decide to take my “Dashing Dan” script and convert it into a Seinfeld episode. Nothing like over-doing it at the slightest evocation. Additionally, I decided to pull out some scripts and submit them to some comic company, two things I had co-written with John Rawlins (our radio script “Capt. Useless” and a pilot we pitched to the “Galaxy Ranger” folks, “Tech-Mech”).
I didn’t write in my journal until half-way into January 1993. Heard from the agent Robbins. He passed on the second script I sent him, “Dashing Dan.” But he thinks it might make a good 2-part “Seinfeld.” Oy. I decide to send him my “Seinfeld” spec, based on my “Wedding” script, “He might get a kick out of that.”
