Happy Writing

on April 19, 2015 in Misc

I’ve got nothing exciting to report this week.  Or even barely interesting.

Didn’t do much ‘cause I was under the weather the last couple weekdays and this whole weekend.  Not really sick.  Just run down .

Mr. deeds


Because I hung around at home I got some serious work done on my screenplay, and you know what? It was lots of fun.  If I didn’t have to go into work tomorrow, I’d exercise in the morning and then happily spend the rest of the day parked at my desk, scribbling away.

It really has been too long since I’ve enjoyed telling a story.  Maybe the trick is that screenplays don’t get published, so I’m not worried about going indie or anything like that.  And yes, I’m maintaining a silly fantasy of someday seeing my screenplay on the big screen.  But I know it’s a fantasy.  Even a delusion.  Doesn’t matter.

What does matter is that I am now actually truly really having fun writing. I love how the characters and scenes are falling naturallly into place.  Of course there’ll be days ahead when I get literary constipation and will have to struggle.  And sure, I’m only one-third of the way through this script.  But I’m anxious to see how the story turns out.

And that’s the jist of my little egotistical rant.

I hope all of you have a very productive writing week.  Any short stories or novels or serials in the works? I’d love to hear about them.

  1. You found the joy again and that’s awesome.
    Hope you have a bit more energy this week.

    Alex – Thanks. I believe I just had the creeping crud.

  3. As Alex says: it is wonderful that you found the joy again. I spoke and sold my two print books all weekend at a local Sci Fi Convention — first 3 day weekend off since last century!

  4. I love reading screenplays. I can see the actors in my head. That’s probably why you are having so much fun. You are visualizing your favorite actors playing out the parts and bringing your work to life. The world of make believe can be intoxicating. Just don’t get lost in there, my friend.

    Roland – I’m so happy for you! I hope you sold bunches and that your presentation went over like fireworks. You deserve it.

  6. Helena says:

    Mike – Make believe can be way too inviting for me. And I definitely can get lost in my head.

  7. I’m so glad you’re having fun writing again and that the words are flowing. Awesome! I read last week’s blog, too. Maybe I should introduce you to Kat :)

    Carol – Kat is one impressive woman! A real mistress of disguises, too.

    YAY for excellent progress! I hope this weekend is as productive for you.

    Hart – Right back at ya. Thanks.
