Decisions & Revisions

Writing is hard work, and anyone who can sit down and write wonderful, creative stuff right away has my admiration.  I have heard of people who are that creative, and I so envy them.  But for me, it’s just plain hard.  I remember Dad saying long ago that the reason why he didn’t want to be a writer was because:  “I don’t want to work that hard.”  Now I understand what he meant, but when I was a child I was amazed that he could stand before me and create rhymed verse so easily.  He was that gifted.  He could have been a famous author, but he didn’t want to work that hard.

I don’t want to work that hard either, but must if I ever expect to accomplish my goals, which brings me to the happy announcement that I FINALLY got my movie trailer script finished and submitted to the movie trailer contest.  I had planned to write a trailer on a concept I thought up, but decided to write one on a script that I had submitted to the Page Awards Contest in 2010.  The script was in the top 25%, but the 2nd judge who read it thought my vampire/human love story The Taming Of The Blood was a horror story where I saw it as a Twilight type love story for older adults.  Afterall us “old fogies” need love too!

This chore was more difficult than I had imagined, but I finally got it finished and sent.  Luckily I had the completed script for reference.  So now I wait.  Wish me luck My Readers, for who knows maybe:  Somebody will want to read my finished script.  Don’t give up on your dreams — just plan on a L-O-N-G, bumpy road to get there!
