Everything in your book does not need to be produced. Spec is fine to show thinking/skills, just be honest about it.

(Cont) Any way I can still use some of the things we pitched?

Yes use anything you produce creatively. As creatives it’s the only way. That’s how every director starts and cd and so forth. No one i mean no one was born with a portfolio.

There is this girl in my office.
We have been connecting over social media since lockdown.
On Instagram, we share memes with each other. But sometimes to stay away from her, I stop sharing memes, then she starts sending me lot of memes.. I mean 20-25 memes daily... And when I start sending her memes like 4-5 memes a day, then she stops sending me memes. Don't know what is this game.. If I send, she stops... But if I stop, she sends in bulk.
