So I got flummoxed the other day because Big Bro was grilling me about what exactly I wanted to have happen with screenwriting. And it was hard not to say "ANYTHING! Anybody pay me to write anything...preferably in the next two months before Mom and I explode from anxiety!"
But truly, this is a reasonable question. And considering the freaky-ass powers of manifestation I have when I put my mind to it, a valuable thought to refine.
I want to option one of my scripts by July 15th, even if it's just for a $1 to one of my producer friends.
I want to be hired on a low-budget feature rewrite by August 15th, focusing on dialogue. Straight to video is fine by me.
Here me, Universe? That's pretty specific. After that, would loooove to be a staff writer on a low profile TV show. Preferably something not in the top 50, cable, like a Nickelodeon kids' show or scifi show. Somewhere with a laid back attitude, cool people, and an environment where I have time to absorb and learn.
In general, my writing specialty is dialogue, followed next by character development (those years of professional acting lessons paid off). I've developed a reputation for that in the Professional Program, and would be happy as a clam to be paid for doing that, especially anonymously, the rest of my life. But I hear that's a top notch job, so perhaps that is a visualization for the next decade.
And I publicly commit to writing every day, and having two of my seven scripts in polished, circulation-ready form by July 1st. And yes, you can all bug me about it. Please do.
