Why this blog?
Just wanted to clarify why I write this blog....it is really for me, I will put something up here if I found it and think someone else in my position might find it useful, funny, enjoyable, whatever, hence the links on the side. However, I wont often link to a pro's specific article, unless I want to discuss that particular subject, as I assume you have already read them.
However, I am here to learn, the reason I might not often link to other stories, etc is that if you are reading me first.......something is wrong. Read the pro's first and then when you are drunk, stoned or are having a mental block, then drop by. Yell wanker, and then keep on going.
I had a little stats counter thing there, but that was just for fun, (use doped up voice, even though it has been over 14 years since I last tried some) seeing the pretty coloured flags generate, but as soon as google ads started showing.....out of here.
My job is selling, I do it all day, (software to hotels and resorts, yes, it is a cool job, I even get to travel to them ;-) )I dont have anything to sell here, I don't even want little google ads where I might make some dollars if you click on the link, for me this is purely about writing. That is just me, anyone else doing it, no problem from me, I often click on them anyway if they look interesting, but I just want this site to be one thing. This is where I stay focused on writing the screenplays. Like a lot of you, ideas are easy, got a million, but I want to hang around with other aspiring sw's like myself, and it is easier to do it online. I really hope some of us can swap scripts like we have discussed. There seems to be a few of us around the 40 mark, so we all have similar interests and memories, from that era, so I feel comfortable.
I am constantly amazed at how agreeable, friendly, down to earth, and helpful the pro's are on their blogs and other places, forums, etc. I have said it before, but again, thank you for all assistance whether it be answering questions, articles, or general discussion, it is all invaluable, and up until a couple of years ago, impossible unless you lived in LA.I cannot move to LA at present as I have a family, responsibilities, etc. so this is my way of absorbing the LA culture, and maybe meet some contacts. Who knows.
By having this blog it constantly reminds me to write. I wont post here unless I have written something, anything on one of my sp's.
Writing on here also keeps my fingers and brains working even if it is not on a sp, it also reminds and inspires me to get back to the important writing. I figure if I can get a laugh out of you guys, then I am doing something right. If Angelina Jolie drops by and falls in love with me, well then all the better, stuff any career, I am off to have some blood sucked.
I just thought I would let you know where I am at. Just hanging in cyber space, absorbing the greatness of wisdom that be the pro's and gaining inspiration and focus.
