Day 2: Ian
Ian came late in the day. For only my second day I was pushing things to the wire. We met at a bar surrounded by screens showing an NCAA hockey game and people drinking tall boys.
Ian works as a news broadcast director. He told me he likes it, but he's not sure how long he might keep doing it. "It's a lot of the same, even in a job like this." You go in day after day and do the same thing he told me. "I guess the most important thing if you're a creative is finding creative ways to be creative--" he laughed "--because most jobs, even one like mine, are going to have moments where it gets stale."
We talked about my writing and it brought us to his writing. "I write screenplays and I've been thinking about entering them in some contests." I told him he should and I asked him what he's been writing about-- a short film about the Atlantic City mafia. I hope to see it get made.
