I started this blog a bit early - it's almost midnight on Saturday, but I was so anxious to share, I just had to come ahead of time.
I've spent the last week working on a screenplay, a book, two editing projects and cooking. I love all of it! And some days I wonder how I am ever going to get it all done. But this week was a good one. I saw three movies - Watchmen, Race to Witch Mountain and Duplicity. Nice thing - when you're a screenwriter, you get to deduct such expenses on your taxes :)
Anyway, I thought the rest of the week would be the usual, but ... I decided to become an agent and actually sold a book, get to pitch to a movie producer in a few months and got two new clients I have to work into my schedule.
We're actually having a ranting week, and trust me, I have weeks like that. I'm really glad this isn't one of them. You've heard all the publishing bad news, but I can tell you, there's still a place for each and every one of you who has a story to tell, so don't give up! You have to write because you're a writer, and you have to write because you need to be published.
So get on your butt and get busy! I want to see progress posted here on how everyone is doing. Commit a goal to us and then let us know you're working ... do it today! The minute you get done reading this!
What are you waiting for? Go!!!
