Okay, so this year has been a lot different than previous years have been in my writing career. I can feel the momentum picking up and am hoping that a big jump is just around the corner.
As some of you know, I finished the screenplay to A Brief Word on Hypersleep Studies : Chiliagon earlier this year. When I say “finished” I know that any of you that write will know that you’re always making little changes here and there, it’s never finished really, but I finished it to a point where I felt that it’s good enough to start trying to make something of it publicly.
So I created a profile on FilmFreeway.com and have been pushing it out to contests this whole summer. So far, it seems like it’s being received pretty well.
I’m a finalist in the Spirit Quest Film Festival, which although this seems like a very small, independently run festival, it’s big news for me! 🙂 As you may have seen in one of my previous posts, the screenplay is an official selection in the Other Worlds Austin SiFi screenwriting competition. Lastly, I was contacted by the Feedback Film Festival and asked to submit a “Best Scene” entry for their upcoming festival!
Soon I’ll have a promo video of the “French Toast” scene of A Brief Word on Hypersleep Studies : Chiliagon. Don’t worry I’ll for sure post it here when it’s in my hands.
There are about 5 other contests that I haven’t heard back from and probably won’t up until November, so to pass the time I’m busy writing another screenplay!
Some of you may remember my posts regarding my story “Horntooth’s Farm”. Well that story is quickly becoming my second feature length screenplay. I’m almost a quarter of the way done with it. My goal is to completely finish Horntooth’s Farm by the end of the year. Somewhere in there I’ll have to make time for some rewrites and edits to Hypersleep Studies as I hear back from the different festivals.
May God bless you all. I hope you’re all doing well this summer, stay safe and keep working toward your dreams.
