Bring It Back

Happy Friday ya'll!

Anyway, i finished my seventh draft.  Now FINALLY i can finish working on Blood Of Secrets (as I've said before and I will again, I suck at multitasking.  My multitasking skills are at zero.  I'm a good multitasker when it comes to other things but when it comes to my craft I can't seem to do it, it's so weird)
When I left Blood Of Secrets (the sequel to Blood Is Thicker Than Water)  William was arrested for the attempted murder of his son, after hearing his wife died in the delivery room he didn't want to be a father anymore and blamed Henry (his son) for her death and convinced himself he had to get rid of him.

After the cop (Frank) booked him and threw him in a holding cell, he wrote a phony police report charging William with murder so he could steal his son and raise him as his own.
Frank leaves the department while planning on what to tell his wife without raising suspicion.

It's A Process

So here I am, on my seventh draft... 105 pages down and 16 more to go.  Add all that up it comes to 121, which is too long according to most people.  The industry standard is 120 but correct me if I'm wrong when I say it's not written in stone.
It's not one of the ten commandments Moses read to the Israelites or anything but I do think more than 135 pages is too much.  Just find your happy medium.

I will post my revised copy as soon as it's done.

What else is there to talk about?

I joined Stage 32 last year.  For those of you who haven't heard, it's a premiere social networking site for Film, Television and Theater creatives (i sound like an ad).  In my own words it's for industry professionals and people want to break into the industry.  It's keep track on of your participation (karma points) Mine is 39, which is the prolly the lowest.  I'm working on being more vocal and networking and putting myself out there ( all that good stuff)

50 % networking and 50 % honing your craft.

.......that's it.

Stay Tuned X

Don't You Just Love Updates

Good morning ya'll!

I'm on the sixth draft of my screenplay and recently I got some feedback after posting it on Stag 32.  I have to say that most of the feedback was accurate.  However, some of it was like

it gave me the impression he didn't read it in its entirety.

I'm willing to do whatever it takes and i appreciate his notes, even though he didn't red the whole thing.  

Goodbye to the sixth draft and hello to the seventh. 
Whatever it takes. I can't stress that enough.  

If you are born to do something, you do it regardless of how many drafts you have to do.  Regardless if how much work you have to put in or how many rewrites you gotta do.  WE do it because we can't do anything else.

Bam! That's my philosophy 

Until the next time...

Back To Business

Today I will be working on book two and querying agents for my script

Whoever said women are great multitaskers, didn't mean me.  I suck at it but since I'm determined imma do it one mo' gain

I have a director attached to this project.  I just need an agent (not as easy as it sounds) to give me the green light (I'm ready to go right nowwwwww lol how can you not hear that song and spontaneously harmonize)  I will be querying them via snail mail.  I express myself better creatively than I can verbally.  I will work on being more verbal but I'm better on paper right now  (gotta play to my strengths ya know?

   Stay tuned :)

Snowing in Kentucky

I'm 39 years old, knocking on 40 and snow on the ground still makes me smile.  There's something beautiful about it.

What can I say? I'm a big kid at heart.  That prolly will never change no matter how MATURE I get.  I know I'm not alone though.

I was tempted to make snow angels but the way my gloves are set up....

Audiobook mission

To be honest this is in my "maybe" pile.   I created an ACX account last year and decided to turn my book audible but it wasn't that simple ( at least for me), there was one major thing that factored in my decision to put it on the back burner.

For anyone following my blog/checking my blog regularly, i leave in your hands (my readers/fans/friends)

If you enjoyed/are enjoying the snippets and want more, go to the site and like them.  If I get 1000 likes I will raise money to complete this project
