Hi everyone. Well, I, this weekend I just had to kind of shut myself down a little bit. I mean, I actually went online both Saturday and Sunday. Sunday, it’s like, I started to think, what am I doing? What am I doing to myself? I’m going online every single day doing stuff. And I, I don’t think it’s good for me to do that. So I am seriously, seriously thinking of taking a break either on weekends or just one day of the weekend from all online activity. Seriously. I’m, I’m just really starting to think about that. Except maybe Duolingo. <Laugh> I like keeping up my, I know it’s an algorithm, but you know, I can’t help myself. Yeah. I’m addicted. That’s what happens. You become addicted to this stuff and it’s like, you have to do it or you feel like, oh, you know, I haven’t done something that I should. No, you don’t have to.
So, last Thursday, I went to a local bike shop that also has tricycles. Electric bikes and trikes, actually.
Let me tell you, the first time I got on the trike I test rode, the result seemed unpromising. But I could tell that I could manage, if I put my mind to it.
And like anything else you do for the first time, it may not have been perfect. But I don’t care.
Plus I actually managed to steer the trike with power-assist and not crash into anything!
Rather than natter on about this, I’ll just show you what happened. Okay? 🙂
Hi, I’m gonna talk a little bit more about screenwriting and producing and their relationship. Uh, yeah, the first thing you need to know, if you’re gonna get into screenwriting is to be serious about it, because if you’re not, you’re gonna wanna give up after the 10th or 20th or 30th version of “No”. And you’re gonna hear a lot of no, or a lot of things like, I don’t understand what you’re saying here. This needs to be clearer. Uh, what? No, this really doesn’t do it for me. Things like that.
Hi! Today, I’m just gonna talk a little bit about what sent me down the screenwriting path. First of all, I took a course back in 2009 in screenwriting and ended up writing a feature film, a draft of a feature film screenplay during that course. It was an online course, and it seemed to be halfway decent at any rate. I submitted it to a contest, Scriptapalooza, and made the quarter-finals, and I was shocked, absolutely shocked.
