You ever feel like your heart is pulling you in two different directions?
It's happening to me today. The only time it happened was 2, 3 years ago.
Thought i was over this, seriously.
Picture me, working on Blood Of Secrets (I had 15 pages so far and went up to another) the words are flowing so far. I'm feeling good about it. Then BAM! i run out of words and now everything i type is crap...i don't want to do it anymore, i mean i want to write the script, which i plan to after the book comes out but I don't even want to write the book. What kind of shit is that?? I love all forms of writing even though i feel screenwriting comes more natural to me than novel writing. The feedback I got from the people at Stage 32 told me my story structure was off but nothing about the story within itself.
Is God trying to tell me something? Is this the end for me as an author? Or am i just bullshitting?

Happy Monday ya'll!
I'm FINALLY over my cold. I had a cold that i caught from my niece (nothing but cold medicine and chicken noodle soup for five days straight, and I had the nightime NOT the daytime so you know once that' medicine hit me
Back to business. Back to me. Back to life. Back to reality.
There's nothing new to report. I'm finishing up my 8th draft and still querying by the way. Still no response. It's a waiting game unfortunately...just learning to be patient and cold call when i need tto.
Brainstorming the third installment of the NEXT OF KIN series, BLOOD LUST
Stay tuned xo

Happy Tuesday folks! Let's get it!!
Where did I leave off? Rhetorical question.
Talking about the sequel to my dark thriller series, BLOOD OF SECRETS, and how I'm progressing with my novel turned script, BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER, networking on Stage 32, querying and all that good stuff.
I'm still querying agents as well as managers and producers via email and snail mail. I haven't heard from anyone yet but I'm hopeful. Just send off five letters today. One from Code Black Films, 7 Bucks Entertainment, Aspire Entertainment, Heroes and Villains Entertainment and The Cartel.
In the midst of all this, I switched screenwriting software. I don't know why I put FD (Final Draft) on my computer when i'm comfortable with MMSW(Movie Magic Screenwriter)
The only reason I put FD on there in the first place was because my director friend suggested it so we could try out that collabowriter, which they don't even have anymore. I only had access to the new version. Well anyway, it's MMSW from here on out.
Submitting my script to Amazon Studios would be my last resort. Or if I see another movie with Amazon Studios attached, I'll consider that a sign from God.
Did i forget to mention I have a director attached to my project?
We met on Myspace some odd years ago when it was still cool. She was looking for writers to be a part of her Independent Film Company, Got Next Films, in one of her writing groups. She put up a freestyle challenge, where she posted a few original scenes and each one of us had to add to it. She liked what I posted and called me the next day.
To make a long story short, we connected and became good friends. Good to know Myspace was good for something. Joke.
It goes to show, you don't know who you'll meet in this virtual universe.
