So we arranged to video-chat on Tuesday. After I showered, shaved, and brushed my teeth - and practiced my smile - I was ready for the call, Tuesday morning.
When they were finished asking questions - and I finished rambling through my answers - as interviews generally go, they asked if I had any questions for them. I asked about the timeline for the project. They indicated that they were going to attempt to shoot the episode during the first part of August, but they might actually move it to an earlier date. It would be a single day of work to capture the videos they needed.
I'm not giving out details about this little venture until I know something for sure, but thought some might find it interesting to know how I am spending a little bit of my summer vacation. Outside of a bunch of sweaty yard work, spending time with family, both in and out of town, participating in Vacation Bible Schools, church camp, and planning other church activities, and some writing, this has been the most unusual of our summer activities. With a month left in the summer break, we intend to make the most of it: I have a couple of book-signing events in front of me, and we have some other plans. I may need to go back to school just to have a break from all the activities of the summer of 2014 (If you believe that, you don't know me very well.).
Hopefully your break is full and meaningful, as well.
