This is just a quick hello to you all in the midst of my furious writing. I don’t want to neglect my blog and followers while I drown myself in the clouds of my worlds. It has been a very busy weekend and busy week ahead, so here is an update as to what is happening.
The start of the end: The Cinequest Screenplay Competition reaches the end this Friday, and I am a few pages away from the final showdown. At the rate I am going, I feel comfortable that I will be able to submit the final draft by Wednesday. This will be my very first screenplay I have written, quite ambitious, but this competition was just what I needed to challenge my creativity and get it done.
New beginnings: I almost feel cheated out of the word count for the start of the NaNoWriMo competition. Even though I said I would only start it next week to give myself a chance to finish the screenplay, I found that there is a very tempting trophy for updating word count for 30 days in a row during November. So at this stage, even if that means only 50 words a night for NaNo, so be it. Where I feel cheated is that the screenplay gets me over 20k words already, but doesn’t count towards NaNo. Oh well, what fun. Which other WriMo is also writing a screenplay?
Doors ajar: So while I focus on these items, some things come to a stand-still. As mentioned before, the Silent Hill and Dreamweaver novels are at a stand-still while I enjoy these new experiences in my life, meeting new people and socialising with them over whatsapp, twitter, facebook and linkedin. The Celenic Earth’s debut newsletter will only be worked on this coming weekend again, but I have the bulk of the information I need to complete it.
If some of you may be thinking I am way in over my head with all of this, believe me when I say I am not. I am truly enjoying this writing adventure of mine, and my family with me. I hope that all of you are enjoying sharing these experiences with me too.
