Resolutions for 2013

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while (it’s always been a while) since I posted last. Hope you’ve had a great start to the new year! I have been playing around so far.

I just decided to work on my resolution for the year.

1) Write a short story a week.

2) Send out two short stories for publication a month.

3) Play piano. Play piano. Play piano.

4) Write another screenplay

5) Edit my stageplays

6) Edit my neighbor’s biography.

7) Submit my neighbor’s biography for publication.

8) Go on to Facebook and other social networking sites one time a week.

What are your resolutions? How are they working out for you?

I finished making a promo video/trailer! I’m so proud of myself! I would love to share it, the only problem is I can’t figure out how to convert an avi and wmd files to what is compatible for the net.


I’ll figure it out soon enough…..(with some help please!)

Hi there!

I spent hours writing yesterday, I am so thrilled! Yesterday, I wrote a play, one that was inspired by A Doll’s House.

Play writing is easy and hard at the same time. One has to visualize what is going on as well as keep the exchanges short, short enough that the viewer knows what’s going on yet, not write a whole novel.

It is like writing the short story or a haiku, it’s an incredible experience of liberation, yet one has to control himself/herself.

Writing is the easiest hardest task I set out to do.

Here I thought that with school starting and no work I could have time to write and update my blog! But NNNNOOOOOOOO!!! I have AP Bio taking up my life, usually leaving me awake until midnight just doing homework, forget about studying. However….the writing club at school is starting up again so I will be writing with short prompts. Does anyone use prompts???

Thanks for reading.

Ok, so I got this awesome deal where I can publish two books for the price of one!  Totally rad!  Now all I have to do is edit, edit, edit!

That’s it for my update on my publishing process.  Otherwise, I’ve been in a coma all week.  I hate it when the Seniors leave, the rest of us juniors go through the seventh layer of the inferno and it is no where near the end of the school year!
