Brief Update

Here is a brief update on my current creative projects and endeavors…!

  1. Had a wonderful weekend (May 31st – June 4th) in San Francisco with friends Ariel and Olivia!
  2. Visited the Legion of Honor to see The Cult of Beauty: The Victorian Avant-Garde 1860-1900. Quite an amazing exhibit. Featured the artwork of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Aubrey Beardsley, etc. Also, very much enjoyed the Victorian Home Walk. I believe both experiences will help my writing.
  3. Robots Are a Girl’s Best Friend: Currently in progress!
  4. The Poet and the Flea: As of Thursday, 28 pages of written script (1 page of script = 4-6 illustrated pages), and about 28 pages (1-6 completed, and 6-28 in progress) of illustrated work.
  5. Thinking of converting “The Ink Drinker” (short story) into a full-length screenplay…
  6. No word yet from Playground Pictures. Monday, sent e-mail in response to ghostwriter gig on Craigslist.  Tuesday, sent e-mail in response to Japanese language tutor gig on Craigslist. Waiting for responses.
  7. Continuing research on various production companies to send query letters to.
  8. Tuesday, signed up with meetup.com. Joined a bunch of interesting groups. Hopefully, I’ll meet some new friends and learn the city!

To Do:

  • Apply to the Bluecat Screenplay Competition
  • Apply to The American Zoetrope Screenplay Contest

Brief Update

Here is a brief update on my current creative projects and endeavors…!

  1. Robots Are a Girl’s Best Friend: Continuing correspondence between me and Cassie. Revisions finished last Friday. Can’t wait to film later this year!!
  2. The Poet and the Flea: Haven’t had time to work this week. Hoping to get more done next week, starting Tuesday-ish! [27 pages of written script (1 page of script = 4-6 illustrated pages), and about 26 pages (1-6 completed, and 6-26 in progress) of illustrated work.]
  3. Tuesday, sent an e-mail to Playground Pictures. They sound like a really cool group, and I think I could gain some great experiences by working with them. I would love to get involved, writing a web series or short script. Hopefully, they’ll message me back!
  4. Wednesday, created a facebook page to promote my works. Don’t forget to “like” me!!
  5. Wednesday, added some new features to my homepage, including a facebook “like” button and facebook comments. Don’t forget to “like” my homepage and to tell me what you think in the comments box!
  6. On twitter, I now have over 200 followers… Thank you, everyone!!
  7. Also, if anyone is interested, you can check out my other tumblr account… just a silly, random collection of things I like.

Brief Update

Here is a brief update on my current creative projects and endeavors…!

  1. Tuesday, had successful first meeting with my director Cassie Jaye for our short film Robots Are a Girl’s Best Friend!! Had a chance to bounce ideas off each other, and currently working on revising the script. Planning on filming sometime after September. Wow!!!!!
  2. Didn’t get in to the Provincetown Writing Fellowship. But I’m more than okay with that. I was worried that, if I were to get in, that the fellowship would interfere with my involvement in Robots Are a Girl’s Best Friend. Now, I can dedicate myself fully to this film project!
  3. The Poet and the Flea: 27 pages of written script (1 page of script = 4-6 illustrated pages), and about 26 pages (1-5 completed, and 6-26 in progress) of illustrated work. Would like to begin scanning pages soon — must experiment with my temperamental scanner.
  4. Except for a few issues, my homepage has been revamped… Check it out!
  5. My best friends Ariel (from New York) and Olivia (from Texas) are visiting the first few days of June!! So we’ll be running around San Francisco, doing lots of touristy things. Can’t wait!
