How’s it going?

public speaking

Go ahead. You’re among friends.

From what I’ve been reading on the internets, a lot of you are making some excellent progress with both your writing and your careers.

I’d love to hear more. Feel free to share the latest development(s) for you and/or your writing. Anything worth noting you’d like to tell the world? Doesn’t matter if you’ve made a sale or written 2 pages in your latest draft. It’s all good stuff.

I’ll go first.

I’m about halfway through outlining the story for a sci-fi side project, working on some script notes for a few friends, still trying to break the story for my new idea, and my western has advanced to the semifinals of the 2015 Screenwriting Action/Thriller contest.

See? Nothing to it.

Your turn.

  1. I’m rewriting/polishing a couple of features for the 2016 Nicholl. I’ve made the semi-finals three times – I’d sure like to crack the top ten.

  2. As soon as I get my flash drives returned(long boring story of repitition, ongoing), I’ll continue wrapping up my novella of short stories and placing it on sale at amazon. Should take a about a week at best.

    Well done to the both of you! Keep writing! (-:

  4. I’ve got a poetry book in the editing phase and a novel in the early writing stage and then my weekly blog.

    Signed with a boutique lit agent last month (still looking for a manager). She went out with one of my pilots & is shopping another one. Currently working on a contained horror.

    I joined toastmasters. So I’ve been writing speeches and working on my oral skills and, as I have to evaluate other speakers, my reviewing skills.

  7. How’s it going? Not bad. And it’s going to get better in 2016 because I have decided the only person(s)who get to read my stuff from now on are potential BUYERS or persons who can get my stuff to buyers! I’m not insecure so I will no longer pursue free or paid feedback. Ben there, done that (for years)and I’m moving forward. And if by chance anyone thinks I’m making an arrogant mistake know this: I have written a 1st DRAFT screenplay that WON a screenwriting contest and took 3rd Place in another. I have written 2 other 1st DRAFT screenplays that were Top 20 Finalists in a third screenwriting contest. I’m at a level now where the feedback cottage industry really is just a bad joke to me. I work too damn hard on my day job and $200-300 is better spent on throwing my hat into the ring! Goodbye insecurity! Hello contest wins!

    Good for you, Larry!

    The way to go!
    Good luck.

    I’m focusing on prose, sorting out a second draft on a work in progress and deciding which writer’s conferences to take my existing manuscript to.

    In screenwriting I’ve gotten connected with a local startup coop studio that I’m intrigued by. I submitted a webseries script to a contest and I’ll be saving up to buy in early next year.
