2017..It's Just The Beginning

Happy Thursday beautiful people! And Happy #NationalScreenwritersDay for all you writers out there!

I usually don't do this unless I have something to say.  If you read my posts or if you're just lurking, you know the deal.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and a great start of the New Year.
Most people got toasted..I was one of them.  It's a celebration! Might as well celebrate.

My Christmas was good. Spent time with my family and celebrated Jesus, which is what it's really all about.  All that gift giving hoopla is for the kids.  My Two cents.

Anyway, I don't want to get away from what this blog is about.  It's about my screenwriting journey..there will be some random shit along the way because I am very random, and those who truly know me know it.  If i happen to inspire people along the way. all the better for it.
Yes, I am a screenwriter and ...yes I do have a book on Amazon called Blood Is Thicker Than Water. The first volume of the series, but there will be no Vol 2 and Vol 3, so it's hanging out there like an idiot.
I also have a poetry collection on Amazon too, Expressions Of Me. But that won't be the last poetry book I put out.  Just waiting until I have a gang of new poems on deck, ready to be displayed. It's kinda hard to focus on your project and find the inspiration to write poetry.  I have 2 new poems total. The rest will come when it's supposed to come.

I'm not an author anymore, in the novel sense of the word.  For a while I was teetering around with the idea of doing both.  For those who can, I applaud you, wish i was more like you but I can't and I'm not ashamed to say that.  The truth is, I don't want to do both.  I've been bit by the screenwriting bug. Dipped my toes in the screenwriting pool an shit and went back for more.

I'm starting 2017 off right by planning my days, creating a schedule and sticking to it, exercising.  Got these Tae-Bo DVDs sitting here collecting dust so I'm making use out of em.
I got a Panda Planner.  Bought it on Amazon on the 30th. Had to pay five dollars extra for it to be shipped on the same day but it's worth it.  It's day four on this new regime and I already feel a difference.  New year, new me..NOT. Still the same me, just working on some shit.

The last thing was rewriting my horror short.
After doing some thinking, I'm putting all my projects on the back burner and focusing on horror pilot, Kilbourne, which is inspired by my novella Blood Is Thicker Than Water.  It's a passion project for me.  I'm very passionate about the characters, the storyline and where I want it to go and the many places I can take them.  The MC has been revamped.  In the book, he has psychopathic behavior.  In the pilot, he's a full on psychopath. He killed both his parents and he spent 12 years in a mental asylum.  They misdiagnosed him as a sociopath.
I'm not gonna give too much detail.  You'll have to follow my blog to see what happens with it.
I'm entering it in the tv writing contest. I have three and a half months to finish the rough draft and finish the rewrites.  So we shall see.
