I have not been on here since March. My goal at that time was to write a short story. That has not changed. However, this thing called life keeps getting in the way of things. I always joke and say that work always gets in the way of my “real life.” What is that real life? The life where I get to sit down and create these masterpieces with other talented artists that come to life either in a book or on television or the big screen. I know that will happen one day but now I have to live the life that pays bills and allows me the basic comforts of living. Yes my friends, that’s my chosen profession–social work. If I only knew then what I know now. Hmm.
I was asked to rewrite a short film for a friend and in 2018 it will come to life. I am excited to be a part of this. I have never thought of writing short films before I was asked to help with this one. Since then I have written two others. I want to bring them to life also and enter them into film festivals. I know that 2018 is going to bring some great things. Three short films in one year would be great, wouldn’t it? I also need to finish editing Shayne’s Promise. I wanted to release that book in 2017 but I think it will be next Spring.
I have set a few new goals to finish out this year and I have a list of lofty goals that I have written down for 2018. I will do better writing on my blog. I have to at least introduce my other characters for my short story. Remember, I would like your input. This is another new venture for me and I think it could be lots of fun.
This is my birthday month. It’s a BIG birthday! This birthday is going to steer me in the right direction so I will be closer to where I want to be next year. Despite what bag of tricks this thing called life sends me I have to make time to write. It’s what I love and the burning desire to reach my goals can no longer be put to the wayside. No matter what I do life occurs and my writing needs to also. Keep writing!!
