A Meeting of the ‘In The Spotlight’ Staff

It’s been a while since we caught up with the diligent staff that makes this website possible. Let’s see what’s going on and what’s new! Let’s listen in on…


A Meeting of the ‘In The Spotlight’ Staff 

The scene is a small but comfortable conference room. Three people are seated at the table: Sally, who researches for the show; Bryan, the head writer; and Tyler, who produces the show.

Tyler: Where’s Margot? Has anyone seen her?

Bryan: Didn’t she come in today?

Sally (Shaking her head): No. Lily told me she’s doing a personal appearance today.

Bryan: What? Where? Why didn’t she tell us?

Tyler: Typical! We really needed her for this meeting! The next episode of In The Spotlight goes live on Tuesday, and she’s got to be here for the filming!

Sally: Yeah, I know. But Margot’s out today signing her books and meeting readers.

Bryan: Ha! She doesn’t even write them herself! We all know Lily does it all.

Tyler: Yeah, well, Margot’s the face of the show. People expect her at these signing and meet-and-greet things.

Sally gets up and pours herself a glass of water from a pitcher on a side table. Then she sits back down.

Tyler: Sally, did Margot put in for any expenses?

Sally: Yup. For the limo ride, designer suit from (glances at her tablet computer) Dolce & Gabbana, shoes, bag, the whole thing. Oh, and the bill from the salon/spa.

Bryan (Low whistle): That’s going to set us back a lot.

Tyler: We ought to at least post about it on social media.

Sally: I thought of that. If we’re going to spend all this money, at least let’s get the word out. Here’s what I have so far:

Margot’s going to be signing books and meeting readers at Helen’s Bookmark, Escondido, California, from 10 AM -3 PM Pacific Time on Saturday, 22 October.

What do you all think?

Tyler: I like it. It’s short but says what needs to be said. Bryan nods his agreement.
OK, I think that’s it for now, everybody. Thanks a lot.

Everyone stands up and pushes chairs back in. On the way out, Sally mutters, ‘Thanks a lot, Margot! Now we have to pull this next show together ourselves!’

    1. Hahaha! Well, you know, FictionFan, someone has to do the actual work around here. I can’t be expected to, can I? 😉 Now, if you’ll excuse me, my personal stylist is here, and he does not like to be kept waiting… 😉
