My plan was to clean up the desktop somewhat to start my next writing project with a cleaner slate, but things spread and sprawled instead.
[If you think that looks messy, just peek inside one of my steno books. It’s where I actually lay the groundwork for my writing endeavors — when I’m not pantsing it.]
The desktop image is about as obvious as it gets. I could not find a good fan-made Camp image, so I reverted to the official Camp Nanowrimo logo.
I decided on writing a new screenplay from scratch. In December I dashed off a short piece for Figment to make my goals for the year. It serendipitously taught me this could be turned into a decent longer story. A script seemed more viable than a novel at the time, so that’s where I stand. It’s a far cry from my original inspiration for it: which means it’s even more an original idea with every page.
The running joke is this shall be my “princess” script. A story which would fall into a hard G or light PG by way of a rating system; with a female protagonist [shocker? Not.] wedged between pleasing her father in her own way rather than what he expects a daughter of a kingdom to conduct herself. Thrilling, eh? [I know it doesn’t sound that way. All part of my plan.] If you really want to hear the pitch, contact me. 🙂
Ambition is the name of my my game. I’d rather fail spectacularly rather than as a purplish blur of a ditto machine’s byproduct. Call me crazy.
If you see something on my desktop you’d like to ask about, add a comment. I’ll be happy to give the best answer I can.
