Hard Out Here For A Pimp
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.
