I still walk the earth.

It's been awhile, I know. Does anyone care? The funny thing is installed a counter right before I took almost a month off from this blog and more people stopped by. Maybe they like the idea of me writing but not the actual writing. Anyway, here are a few updates:

The book a week thing I was trying to do, didn't work. Still haven't really finished the first one I started. I'm reading 3 books beside that one as well as 4 or 5 magazines.

I decided that I needed to read more books on story and chose to put down the screenplay books. I think I have a good grasp on those as I have read tons. Personally I think my weakness is in story development. So I have started reading books on that subject.

Also, I finished the first draft of my short screenplay, Connected. I like the way its come along but I know it needs whole lot of work. I'm also starting another short script as well as a outlining a feature. So there you have it. Maybe after I'm done with the second draft I'll post a scene or two to see what you guys think.

I detest McKee but I keep passing his Story book at the library, it's calling my name. Then I read the script of Adaptation recently (looking for a Kaufmanesque scenario) and there's the scene with him and McKee. It's a sign, I may as well read it

Alica:
You will be yr first to read my screenplay.

The Moviequill:
The Story book has been on my list for the past two years. I got up to page 234 and then quit. I learned a lot from those pages, but it was just to dence. I will get back into it someday....

Andrew M:
I know I'm doing good when you don't care. When you start caring, then, I have a problem.

The McKee book was the first screenwriting book I read. I loved it, even though parts of it were too dense. I just skimmed over those parts. I plan to read it again soon to see if any more of it makes sense.

Second...I feel so special that I am going to be the first to read!
