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.
How a Christmas Tree should really look
So, finally! It has been a long time since I have updated this blog and a lot of things have been happening. Since my last post I have been completely immersed in my MFA programme. I am now on the tail-end of my thesis manuscript (a collection of stories). They are currently being reviewed by my awesome supervisor and I am waiting and hoping that there are not that many changes to be made so I can go ahead and submit!
It has been a long and arduous road but I can only see awesome things in my future. 🙂
But, hold the phone, I have great news! My collection of poetry that I was working on before I got accepted to my programme is available on Amazon for Kindle. I am so happy that I was able to get through the hard task of editing and publishing for myself. It makes me proud to see my work available for others to read and review, so please take a gander over to Amazon and check out my kindle book, Beneath My Skin and give an honest review.
Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EELXK8U
I am now working on trying to get it into hardcopy for those not on the Kindle bandwagon so when that time comes I will definitely update.
Hopefully, now that I am on the hopeful end of my programme I will definitely have time to update this blog more often. yay!
Whew! So i did not know it would take this long to edit a collection of poetry, but juggling that and work ended up making this task a longer one than I thought. Anyways, it is finally over and now the search for the appropriate cover art is on. To Google!! This is just to give me ideas of cover art that would fit closely to the name of the collection would be, and from there I would get someone to design.
When cover is done then I think the first place I will put my book up is on Amazon, for the Kindle option as well as Lulu.com so I can have hard copy options made on demand 🙂
Finally a dream is closer.
