Christmas/ Write-mas/ Read-mas 2014

Standard

So, it will be Christmas in about a week and I am here sitting and thinking about my next project. I recently found some old scripts (8 in all) from about 7 years ago when I had a fancy thought about becoming a scriptwriter for a television series. I think my idea is still good, although I am yet to read the scripts over with my new-found ability of editing while I read. I automatically find myself critiquing all writing; even captions online!

I am preparing to be completely blown away, and not in a good way, considering how much my writing has improved through the years. I am prepared as well to at least still find a ‘diamond in the rough’ that I can work with to produce something wonderful.

I don’t actually know who I would market it to seeing as our local film and television industry is…well…let’s just say, we aren’t Hollywood/Bollywood or Nollywood by any stretch of the imagination. We have wonderfully talented screenwriters, actors, producers and directors but the industry is simply not there…but I digress. This blog post was supposed to be about Christmas. 🙂

So, tell me, what are your writing goals this Christmas, what do you plan to read? Anything that you are willing to share? I am between books right now and would love a good book suggestion.

Maybe I might just ‘rummage’ around in my kindle and find something super awesome. I am very interested in kindle authors who are new to this like myself. There are so many and I am sure feedback from others will be welcomed and definitely go a long way.

Merry, Merry Christmas everyone! I do hope Santa brings you everything that you wish for, and if you don’t much care for the fat, judgemental guy, I hope Jesus/God blesses you richly.

Tis the season

So it’s the christmas season and I’m supposed to be in this wonderful christmas spirit, but so far…nothing. Four days till the day and I am just plain ole tired…

Anyways about the book…well I sorta gave up and made it into a short story…it was kinda going nowhere and it seemed to want to be a short story, so I made it just that. I have been reviewing my short stories lately, making edits and grammar checks and putting them together so some lucky person can read. That is the part that turns my stomach into knots, getting someone to read my work. I have always liked writing, but there has always been this small silent voice in the back of my head telling me that nothing I write is any good…issues I guess I need to deal with sooner rather than later considering that I am in the midst of applying to do an MFA next year. I do hope that I find my calling, especially genre wise and soon I hope to see my work in print (published print that is).

So I am plodding along, writing wise, but I’ve got the christmas drama handled…wish me luck on getting through the season and getting some inspiration for my writing! See you guys next year! 2011 here I come!!
