So if you’re following my Twitter stream, or if you’re my Facebook friend (or Ben’s), you know that Ben has been working feverishly on Call of Cthulhu: The Opera
This is because we’re applying for a grant in March and I had told him that we needed the completed score for that application.
I double-checked the forms today and, um, we don’t. At all. In fact, we don’t need a bit of the score, just a project description and examples of other work.
So Ben has put himself through all of that for no reason.
Fortunately he’s been really enjoying the writing and was too relieved that he doesn’t have to meet the deadline that he didn’t get angry at me. But in the future, I think I will read all official documents out loud two or three times before I assign any tasks.
