Jesus…it’s already 2012.
2011 was…well, it was a ride. It had ups and downs. I met a great gal who I enjoy spending time with, took an amazing trip to Brazil. Spent some good time with family.
But, those positive things notwithstanding, on average, 2011 can still go eat a bag of softboiled dicks.
But, it’s over, and I can look forward to a better year.
Starting with writing (and…cough cough…blogging…cough).
I’ve really bee struggling with writing…that’s why I haven’t been blogging. Nothing to blog about from a writing perspective. If I open my WIP novel and re-read the same paragraph one more time, I’m going to lose my mind. For serious. I’ve shelved all of my active WIPs, and am focusing more on screenplays for now. It’s fun…truth be told, I think I enjoy novel-writing more as an art, but screenplays are fun as hell. It’s a completely different animal.
And it’s a kickstart…I need something to blast me out of the writing doldrums, and I think something this different and challenging is it.
I’m working through a treatment with a director right now…if we end up with a filmable thing, the plan is that he’ll come up to Vegas later this year and film it, and I’ll help with production and post-production. My goal, ultimately, is to learn enough about the craft to run my own production sometime in 2012. Big challenge, but it sounds like fun, yeah?
Yeah, something like that.
