A blog about writing and all things story…
Merry Christmas everyone! I’m not a beer drinker, but those Guinness reinbeer made by my creative daughter Tara, just had to get in the picture, before my husband, who is a beer drinker, finds them, because then…well, poor Rudolph’s nose won’t be so bright.
Are you writing? I don’t typically get much writing done during this week with my brother Clark visiting, all my baking, family, and so on, but this year is different, since I’ve been grounded. With a broken foot I haven’t been able to do my volunteer work and haven’t done much mall tripping – mall hobbling is what it ended up being – and in these crowds, it’s not worth it.
So, I’ve been home, foot up, writing a short screenplay based on my – still searching for an agent – novel, Return to Sender. I’ve also been studying a wonderful new (to me) book, by Syd Field titled, Screenplay The Foundations of Screenwriting. Loving it. I read many books and generally only mention the ones that really create a shift in my thinking or teach me something that changes the way I write. These are gold. So, my gift to you this season is the mention of a good book. Read an excerpt from Screenplay, here.
Next week I’ll post a video interview I did recently with author Gloria Kempton.
For now, Merry Christmas! Look, it’s snowing on my blog. How cool is that!
