(This feature promotes discussion and interaction: giving an inside look of my creative craziness. Ask about something about the desktop image and I shall answer.)
March had a lot of shortcomings and April was a month I’d rather gloss over than delve into. Enough words spoken by the desktop alone, so I felt like keeping words short there. If I’m asked to expound, however…I’ll deliver.
Back to March… I had two writing gigs. One was a full-blown scam with international ties [yes; I should be retelling that ordeal, but I did not have the time to revisit that debacle]. The other was something which went down in flames, but I gave it my best effort…and perhaps gained some writing samples from it; showing my rewriting skills in action.
The “highlight” of April was achieving my Camp Nano goal despite overwhelming odds. With all said and done; I have an unfinished screenplay sitting at 102 pages without an ending. No finish, but it was enough to count as another “win” for Camp Nanowrimo.
Despite being a first draft, I can say it’s one of my best original screenplays thus far – hopefully keeping people guessing until the very end. What good is a princess story if it has a predictable ending? Can something be “happily ever after” and still be a surprise?
Not to go into the details, but the ending is already planned out. Once I connect where I left the story to the “beginning” of the ending events, I’ll be all set. There was a point where I kind of shocked myself with an element of the ending chain of events. Enough so to put down what I was doing and really evaluate it all for a day. It appears long right now, and it shall be trimmed later, but I don’t wish to excise anything until after a full-blown table reading.
Back to the image… I had to add something new, so I went generic by way of Apple. It was one of the defaults; looking the most fitting as a “Lady in Red” motif. I hoped to finally clean my desktop up…but way more important things were in motion. Would it be a wanted achievement to gussy up the mess of icons and folders…or is the chaos more welcome here? Please do comment.
