Camp, Serial Fiction and Screenplays

Didn’t write as many words as I’d hoped for Camp NaNoWriMo; ended up with around 5,000 words, well short of the goal (10,000 words).  I’m okay with this though; there’s always July or even November 🙂

I haven’t been completely unproductive.  This past week I posted two new chapters to Redemption:

Chapter Twenty-four

Chapter Twenty-five

In case you don’t know what this story’s about, here’s a brief synopsis:

Anaya and her family survived an apocalyptic event by seeking refuge in a city deep underground; however, this safe haven isn’t what it appears to be.

I recently bought a new book from Amazon:  Crafting Short Screenplays That Connect by Claudia Hunter Johnson.  I wrote two feature-length screenplays (Eternal Bond and Storms of the Heart), but I feel in order to increase my chances of having anything produced I should start with the short screenplay.

What do you think?  A good idea, or not?

Shaky Ground

Starting off the New Year on shaky ground with the flu (the entire family came down with this).  Work-wise, this is not a good thing.  What could I do?  Spread the love?

Yeah, right.

I’m venturing more into the nonfiction arena this year with a new blog called Whispering Shadows, which will be part memoir and part journal.  I’ve been toying with this idea for a number of years; and this year I decided, what the heck, let’s get it on!  Once completed, I will need beta readers to help me revise and edit, and then I’ll have to decide how to have it published.

In April, I plan to write pretty much nothing but poems.   One of these years, I will have a poetry chapbook published.

Then I have my web fiction work to focus on, especially Redemption. I’d love to complete this one by the end of the year.

There are also other stuff I hope to work on, plus my “resolutions” that I previously posted about.  If I manage to be successful on even a handful of these, this should be a productive year.

Stay tuned!
