New Quest: Script Writing.

You might not hear much from me.  My schedule is about to become jam-packed, and on top of it, I’ve added an exciting but certainly challenging new writing venture.  Through Coursera (I’ve taken several courses through them and love them), I’ve signed up for a script-writing class.

Usually, I stick to novels, short stories, the traditional format.  I don’t venture into script writing.  It’s foreign territory.  But this course is supposed to help create a pilot script for a tv series.  I say “supposed” because I’m not sure what the outcome of this experiment for me will be.  Script writing is a very different genre and requires a different set of skills.  It’s like Ballet vs Tap.  I use those because I’m a dancer and I can tell you for experience that while I can tap, I am not a tapper, but have been trained as a classical ballerina.  Reverse that, and I’m sure tappers will agree with me.

But I want to try.

And it’s only week one of the course, and I’ve created a very complicated, overly populated story.  I can’t help myself.  But it’s an experiment, a challenge.

As part of it, I’m going to post my work, after it has been completed through the course, here.

I may also blog my woes, challenges, and revelations.  I’m looking forward to it!


Turned/Red is ready for you to own!

It’s been awhile since I wrote here.  And for good reason!  That reason is now ready for the public: my book can be yours to own!

It wasn’t an easy road, but boy, was it a rewarding, creative, and educational one.  I wouldn’t trade the experience for the world.  I never went into this thinking it was going to be easy, but knowing and going through it are very different things.  But if you’re prepared for it?  If you know you’re going to struggle but make it through?  Do it.  You’ll want to have this moment, because it feels so, so good.

Turned/Red is available exclusively as a Kindle eBook, but also a print-on-demand book through Amazon, and Barnes & Noble!
